Korean actress Han Chae-young [BH Entertainment]
Korean actor Han Chae-young flew into China over the weekend to begin filming a new movie.
"Han is currently in China for movie 'Big Deal.' She flew out last Saturday and is scheduled to continue working there until the end of January," a PR official from her agency BH Entertainment told 10Asia over the phone.
Last month, BH announced that "Big Deal," which is Han's film debut in China, will be screened in over 800 theaters in 30 provinces in China and also premiere in Korea, Taiwan, Japan and other countries in Asia as well as the United States.
"Big Deal," a film about the struggles that young people experience while establishing their own businesses, will be helmed by famed Chinese female director Liwen Ma and also star Chinese actors Blue Lan Zheng Long, Felix Chong and Jason Zhang.
Born Kim Ji-young, the 29-year-old actress grew up in the suburb of Chicago and speaks fluent English. She was reportedly discovered by a famed Korean comedian during her visit to Korea and put her college plans on hold when he suggested that she try acting.
Last year, she made a special guest appearance in the smash hit drama "Boys Over Flowers" (KBS2, 2009) and starred in the film "Good Morning President" alongside top Korean actor Jang Dong-gun.
