Actresses Showcase Korean Film at 2016 Cannes Film Festival

Three gorgeous actresses represented Korean entertainment at the 2016 Cannes Film festival, with Chun Woo-Hee, Kim Min-Hee, and Jeong Yu-Mi, starring in movies The Wailing, The Handmaiden, and Road to Busan.

The Wailing

Chun Woo-Hee is the star of Director Na Hong-jin’s supernatural police drama The Wailing. Chun Woo-Hee was seen wearing this Lilac silk double jacket and pants by Avouavou in pink.

The Handmaiden

Park Chan-wook’s bold new film is a lesbian love story thriller based on Sarah Waters’s novel Fingersmith, but set in 1930s Korea, during the Japanese occupation.  The star of the film, Kim Min-Hee, graced the Cannes red carpet in 2016 Pre-Fall Chanel. This thriller from Park Chan-wook has sold to 175 territories, beating out ‘Snowpiercer’ to become the most widely distributed Korean film in history.

Train to Busan

Perhaps the most crowd pleasing and widely anticipated film, Train to Busan,  is the first Korean zombie horror/thriller by Director Yeon Sang-ho. It stars Jung Yoo-Mi opposite our favorite Korean actor (for his acting skills, his graceful mannerisms, his boyish almost perfect face, and his perfectly toned body, eh hem…and the list goes on) Gong Yoo.

Gong Yoo was wearing a Lanvin shirt at the event (it doesn’t really matter what he wears because he looks perfect anyways, but Lanvin was his choice of the day!) Jung Yoo-Mi was seen wearing the Andy & Debb black one-piece dress.

We can’t wait until these movies are available in North America!

Be your own kind of beautiful,

Nara
