park shin hye, one perfect day
For the movie intended to be the clothing brand Kolon's 40th anniversary offering, Director Kim Jee Woon's 'One Perfect Day' is granted a stage in this year's New York Asian Film Festival.
While other South Korean films will also feature, such as Korean actress Ku Hye Sun-directed 'Peach Tree', the inclusion of this short film starring Park Shin Hye is a nice break from the typical gore, intrigue and violence in other South Korean offerings at said festival. A guaranteed short with only 35 minutes of high-def run time, Park Shin Hye fans in New York will be delighted to catch a glimpse of their favorite actress via this movie.
The official website for the NYAFF 2013 describes the film as "Enshrined in the luxury of a superb production and the arms of a gorgeous female cast, Kim's ONE PERFECT DAY follows a young man through a purgatorial series of god-awful blind dates, which hits rock bottom with a disastrous game of rock(precisely)-paper-scissors. One day, this vicious cycle of dead-end rendez-vous looks like it might be broken when he finds... an adorable little doggy. " Now, this makes me want to hop on a plane to New York and give this film a shot.
The short will be screened at the Walter Reade Theater in New York's Upper West Side on July 7th (5:30 PM) and July 11th (3 PM). It will be the film's international debut and can spell many positive things in the future for the actress and co-star Yoon Kye Sang, if received well.
Next stop, Cannes or Sundance?
