Kwak Jae-yong's "Cyborg She" in ten countries

2008/04/21 Source

"My Sassy Girl" (Yeopgijeokin Geunyeo) director kwak Jae-Yong's latest film "Cyborg She" will be cinematically released in ten countries, including Korea. The romantic comedy is a Japanese production and stars the Japanese actors Haruka Ayase and Keisuke Koide in the leading roles.

"Cyborg She" will kick off its grand international tour in Japan on May 31. Kwak wrote and directed the romantic film. The big budget film includes several special effects laden scenes.

Haruka Ayase plays the titular cyborg girl who becomes involved with an earthly university student, portrayed by Keisuke Koide. "Cyborg She" is somewhat quintessentially Kwak as the sci-fi film features a dominant (cyborg) girl who doesn't hesitate to use physical force against the man of her affection, similar to "My Sassy Girl".

"My Sassy Girl" is one of the early 'Korean Wave' films which achieved great popularity in Japan and other Asian countries, turning its stars Jun Ji-hyun and Cha Tae-hyun into stars all over Asia.

Kwak also directed the romantic drama "The Classic" with Cho Seung-woo, Son Ye-jin and Jo In-sung. "The Classic" is another pan-Asian success film and the film's soundtrack also gained popularity because of its catchy title song Neoege Nan Naege Neon (the music video of "The Classic"'s title song on YouTube: Open the link), equally known and loved among the film's Asian female fans.

Haruka Ayase acted in last year's Japanese blockbuster Hero which also featured the international star Lee Byung-hun. Keisuke Koide's resume mainly includes television dramas. Lee Byung-hun is also starring in the upcoming "I Come with the Rain" (director Anh Hung Tran, also starring Josh Hartnett) and the big budget Hollywood film "G.I. Joe".
