New actress Seo Min-jung is attracting attention for her supporting role in the critically acclaimed film "Night and Day". It was recently revealed that Seo used to work as a reporter at the Kwangju Ilbo.
"Night and Day", directed by Hong Sang-soo, received praise from critics and audiences when it premiered in the 58th Berlin International Film Festival last week. It was one of four Asian films competing for the much-coveted Golden Bear award.
The film revolves around a successful artist, played by Kim Yeong-ho, who faces arrest for smoking marijuana and flees to France. He meets an art student, played by Seo, who introduces him to another beautiful art student, played by Park Eun-hye.
Seo started working as a reporter for the Kwangju Ilbo's culture desk in August 2004. Last year, Seo went to France to study. While studying there, she heard about an audition for a supporting role in Hong's film. She tried her luck in the auditions and was cast in the film.
Seo was overwhelmed by the experience of walking the red carpet in Berlin. "I never dreamed that I would step on the red carpet in my lifetime", she said.
After attending the Berlin film festival, Seo returned to France to continue her studies.
