Yoon Eun-hye Offered Role in Taiwanese Drama

Singer-turned-actress Yoon Eun-hye has been offered to play a leading role in the sports film Dunk to be produced in Taiwan.

Based on the Japanese manga Slam Dunk, the film will be produced with a budget of some 10 million US dollars, and Taiwan’s leading star Jay Chou has already been cast as the male lead.

The offer seems to have been extended to Yoon because of the popularity she enjoyed in Chinese-speaking nations as a member of the five-woman group Baby V.O.X and through Princess Hours, the MBC hit drama where she played a leading role.

In July, an AP report had said that pan-Asian star BoA would act in Dunk, but her agency denied the report, saying, “No offers have been made to us, so we do not know anything about it. If we receive an official offer, we will consider it.”

Lee Jun-ki to Promote The King and the Clown in Japan

Lee Jun-ki, the co-star of Korea’s blockbuster The King and the Clown, will leave for Japan on Friday for the release of his film there.

During his four-day visit to Japan, Lee will hold a number of interviews with the Japanese media.

His management agency said that Japanese fans are already excited about the film as well as the visit by Lee, who portrayed the role of the beautiful clown Gonggil.

Lee already has a small but quite loyal following in Japan for his previous film Hotel Venus. Japan also plans to air a TV mini-series starring Lee entitled My Girl. He is expected to gain greater popularity in Japan through his film and TV appearances.

Lee is currently working on First Snow, a joint Korean-Japanese film.
