Where are all the actresses?

There is an untimely shortage of actresses.

This year, the big successes have been movies about males, including "The Devil's Game", "The Chaser", and "Fate". Also, most upcoming movies, such as "The Guard Post", "Eye for Eye, Tooth for Tooth", "The Good, the Bad, the Weird", and "Shin gi Jun", do not have many actresses.

In the beginning of the year, "Forever the Moment" reached 4 million viewers and there was some expectation for female-centered romance movies, but with the failures of "Hellcats", "Miss Gold Digger", and "The Longest 24 Months", those hopes disappeared.

"Girl Scout", starring Kim Sun-ah and Na Moon-hee, was set to premiere in April but the date has been postponed.

Maybe for this reason, most top movie actresses are turning their eyes to television. Moon Geun-young is preparing for a comeback with the drama "Painter of the Wind", and Kim Ha-neul and Song Yoon-ah, who had been mostly working in movies, are meeting viewers to SBS drama "On Air". It has been said that Song Hye-kyo and Kim Tae-hee are also looking into starring in dramas, and it is expected that male movies will continue to be popular.
