Moon Geun Young's Screen Comeback in Director Shin Su Won's New Work "The Glass Garden"



Actress Moon Geun Young will be making a return to the screen in Director Shin Su Won's (director of 'Madonna') new work 'The Glass Garden.' 


'Madonna' received high praise around the world. Director Shin Su Won's sequel "The Glass Garden' will show in the first half of 2017. In addition, last year Moon Geun Young made a perfect screen return in 'Sado' and Moon Geun Young will do this return together with Director Shin Su Won. 


The mystery movie 'Glass Garden' is to be implemented with a novelist's eye. Doctoral student researcher Jae Yeon (played by Moon Geun Young) is living life a little more secretly than others, and after a shocking incident takes place, she collides with the contradictions of reality and ignores the world.


'Glass Garden's' heroine Moon Geun Young is a doctoral researcher studying artificial blood. In novelist Ji Hoon's novel, he changes Jae Yeon into a woman with a mysterious birth and living with a secret identity.


Jae Yeon is changed into the protagonist after a shocking mystery, she collides with the contradictions of reality, disregards the world, and enters into a hidden room in a green house.


Moon Geun Young taking on this role will foretell and show an unconventional transformation of her performance. This is a role with the strongest thought, ambition, and most mysterious appearance so far.


In the ‘The Glass Garden’ Director Shin Su Won’s unique direction techniques plan to present the development of this overwhelming story based on green colors, a theme with intense tones and with a contrasting metaphysical portrayal. Moreover, with these unique direction techniques, Director Shin Su Won will build a one-of-a-kind mise-en-scene.


This time especially, the movie will present and paint a fun and unique cinematic. Novelist Ji Hoon gets caught in plagiarism and turns his back on the world. Ji Hoon implements Jae Yeon’s incident and her process into his novel through voyeuristic eyes.


Director Shin Su Won revealed the direction’s purpose, "'The Glass Garden' will look back for the value of coexistence, through the novelist’s story. Twisted because of the desire of others, living in forest of secrets, with science she replicates her life.”


In addition, Moon Geun Young conveyed her aspirations, "As soon as I read the scenario, I was immersed at once by the unexpected fantasy-mystery development. My affection and greed grew increasingly because until now I have never met a character like this. This time, I will work hard to show the audience a new look through this piece.”


"The Glass Garden" final castings will be decided as soon as possible, filming starts in May, and it will be released the first half of 2017.

Moon Geun-young takes the lead in mystery film Glass Garden



Moon Geun-young (Sado) is heading back to the big screen, signing on to a new film titled Glass Garden, in which she plays an interestingly mysterious heroine. It sounds like it’ll be an intriguing role for her, and while she was just in a mysterious thriller, SBS’sVillage: Secret of Achiara, she didn’t get to flex her acting muscles much there, playing the straight man in a town full of secretive and shady citizens. Now she’ll be the enigma, which I hope is a better kind of character for her.

In Glass Garden, Moon’s character is named Jae-yeon, a researcher of artificial blood in a doctorate program who’s described as living “a little more secretively than others.” She finds herself clashing with the absurdities of reality and turning away from the world, and retreats into a hidden greenhouse. From there, she becomes the center of a “shocking mystery.”


Meanwhile, a novelist named Ji-hoon gets caught up in a plagiarism dispute and also turns away from the world. He decides to use Jae-yeon and this incident as the basis of a novel, and in the process starts to peer into her life with a voyeuristic gaze. In his novel, she turns into a woman with a mysterious birth and secret identity.

Playing the novelist is Kim Tae-hoon (One More Happy Ending, Hidden Identity, Angry Mom), who always seems to me to have a sinister edge, even if he’s not outright playing sinister. Although really, isn’t he usually playing sinister?

Directing is Shin Soo-won of well-received 2015 film Madonna and 2013 thriller Pluto, whose directorial style and technique are described as unique. In the director’s own words, her goal for the project is to examine the value of coexistence through the story of a researcher who comes to live in a forest of secrets after being broken by others’ greed, and the novelist who reimagines the woman’s life for his work.

Glass Garden purports to utilize the color green as a main theme, used to draw color associations and metaphysical portrayals. Honestly, I have no idea what that translates to onscreen, although I can see the thematic links with the references to greenhouses and glass and plants and forests. Maybe it’ll make a lot more sense once we’ve seen it in action.

Moon Geun-young explained how the unpredictable fantasy-like mystery drew her in the moment she read the script: “Because it’s a character I’ve never been encountered before, I felt even more ambition and attachment for it.”

Glass Garden plans to begin filming in mid-May for an early 2017 release.

MOON Geun-young Climbs into SHIN Su-won’s THE CHRONICLE OF A BOOK - See more at: http://koreanfilm.or.kr/jsp/news/news.jsp?blbdComCd=601006&seq=3882&mode=VIEW#sthash.c8X4UwEa.dpuf


New Mystery-Drama from JUNE FILM




Actress MOON Geun-young is set to appear in the leading role of The Chronicle of a book, the latest film from indie darling SHIN Su-won, director of PLUTO (2013) and Madonna (2015). The mystery film will be produced by JUNE FILM and distributed by Little Big Pictures.

MOON will play a mysterious doctoral researcher specializing in artificial blood who retreats from the world when she cocoons herself in a greenhouse. A novelist plagued by claims of plagiarism, played by KIM Tae-hun of Roaring Currents (2014) and Snow Paths (2016), seeks to capture her story.


Drama and romcom star MOON has not appeared in a thriller since KIM Jee-woon’s seminal horror title A Tale Of Two Sisters in 2003. Though she has been more active on the small screen in the last ten years, she appeared in a supporting role in last year’s hit period drama The Throne, alongside SONG Kang-ho and YOO Ah-in. Of The Chronicle of a book , MOON has said that she was drawn to the enigmatic aspect of the lead role.


Following her debut feature Passerby #3 (2010), director SHIN made a big splash with PLUTO which screened at the Busan, Berlin, Edinburgh and Hong Kong International Film Festivals, among many others. Her most recent film Madonna debuted at the Cannes Film Festival last year in the Un Certain Regard lineup.


The Chronicle of a book goes into production this month and is aiming for an early 2017 release.

Female directors' works to bookend Busan Film Festival




SEOUL • For the first time in its 22-year history, the Busan International Film Festival will open and close with works by female directors - South Korea's Shin Su Won and Taiwan's Sylvia Chang.

South Korea's Glass Garden, directed by Shin and starring actress Moon Geun Young, is set to open the festival, which will run in the south-eastern port city of Busan from Oct 12 to 21.

The film, straddling fantasy and reality, features Moon as a scientist who studies blood. After being betrayed by a lover, she seeks refuge in a secluded forest where she meets an ostracised novelist. He makes a shocking discovery there. "It was a character that I had not come across before," said Moon at a press conference in central Seoul on Monday.


Shin directed Pluto (2013), which received a special mention at the Berlin International Film Festival.

The closing film is Love Education by Chang, featuring three women from different generations and tracing women's history in China.

A total of 298 films from 75 countries will be screened this year, with 100 world premieres and 29 international premieres. Actors Jang Dong Gun and Kim Ha Neul will emcee the opening ceremony.


A large selection of this year's works are from China and Japan. Ten works - from South Korea, India, China, Hong Kong, Iran and Taiwan - will be screening in New Currents, the festival's competition for new Asian directors.

American director Darren Aronofsky and actress Jennifer Lawrence are among the international names attending the event, which is Asia's premier film festival. The two will be in Busan for their film Mother!.

American film-maker Oliver Stone is heading the competition jury, whose members include French cinematographer Agnes Godard and Iranian director Bahman Ghobadi.
