Actress Song Hye-kyo [Lee Ki-bum/Asia Economic Daily]
Song Hye-kyo's agency has again denied a report that the actress has been cast in a Chinese film alongside American actor Wentworth Miller.
"It is not true that she has received an offer to be cast in the movie", an official at Song's agency SidusHQ told Asia Economic Daily over the phone on Tuesday, responding to an article by local sports daily Chosun Sports saying the actress was being considered for a role in "Ji Xian Feng".
"We didn't even know such a movie existed and found out that it was going into production only through other news reports", added the SidusHQ official.
The report by Chosun had quoted an official of the film's production company Imaginary Starlight saying at a press conference for the film that they were "in talks with Song and Miller although it is not at a level where it can be opened to the public".
Starlight had made an official announcement at the event that Chinese actors Donnie Yen and Zhang Ziyi had been cast to play the main characters in the 16 billion won film to be helmed by Stanley Tong.
Chinese media had first reported of Song and Miller's casting for the film in December of last year but Song's agency had said the rumor was "groundless".
Song, 28, shot to fame in hit KBS TV series "Autumn in my Heart" co-starring Hallyu stars Won Bin and Song Seung-hun, gaining increasing popularity throughout Asia with her roles in several successful TV shows thereafter including "All In" opposite Lee Byung-hun and "Full House" alongside Asian pop sensation Rain.
