Ha Ji Won to Appear in a Joseon Period Charlie’s Angels Film
(No joke, the literal Korean title for the film uses “Joseon Beautiful Three Musketeers” which is also the name that was used for Charlie’s Angels in South Korea)
Ha Ji Won, Kang Ye Won, and Oh Yeon Seo will appear in the film “Joseon Beautiful Three Musketeers” (Director: Park Jae Hyun, Producers: “Well Made Star M” and Novis Entertainment) that will begin filming in the middle of 2012. A representative of the film stated, “The three are planned to begin filming in June if things go fast. Because the film is an action movie, the actresses will go through intense training.”
The three actresses are all a part of the same agency and their synergy is highly anticipated. A representative stated, “Well Made Star M is trying to organize the schedules of the actresses to fit in with the movie. The agency wants to make a successful movie with its own actresses.
The film will be Ha Ji Won’s comeback to the historical genre since her last historical genre project 7 years ago.
