'Memories of the Alhambra' may be over, but Park Shin-hye has a brand new project we can get excited about
Park Shin-hye, who played the role of Hee Joo and the AI Emma in ‘Memories of the Alhambra,’ is working on a completely different project – a movie, tentatively titled ‘Call.’
If you’ve just finished binge-watching Netflix and tvN drama ‘Memories of the Alhambra,’ join the club. While you wait for Song Jae Jung to announce she is working on the second season, there is something all Park Shin-hye fans can get excited about.
Shin-hye, who played the role of Hee Joo and the AI Emma in the K-drama is working on a completely different project – a movie, tentatively titled ‘Call.’ The upcoming thriller, also starring Jeon Jong-seo, has already piqued the interest of many, after the teaser images were released by Hello K-Pop on January 14.
Not much is known of the movie helmed by Lee Chung Hyun, and which started shooting earlier this month, but the premise suggests that Jong-seo and Shin-hye will play two women from different time periods that make contact through a phone call. Jong-seo is a rising star whose debut in the international blockbuster ‘Burning’ helmed by Lee Chang-dong made us stop and take notice. Needless to say, we are intrigued.
The movie, also starring Kim Sung Ryung and Lee El, will see Shin-hye playing the role of Seo Yeon, and the depths of emotions she is experiencing is pretty much evident in the troubled expression on her face as she gazes deep into our souls in the poster.
Sung Ryung, meanwhile, is pegged to portray her mother in the sinister movie, and from her expression in the poster, it is evident that she is a very strong and determined character. Lee El, on the other hand, will take on her first villainous role, as Young Suk’s mother, whose cold and hard stare induce a fear about what trouble her character will cause for the rest of the gang.
“The changing emotions of Seo Yeon brought about by her confusion because of her situation was very attractive to me. I will be able to show you various emotions through the character,” Shin-hye told Hello K-Pop regarding her character.
Knowing the amount of passion and sincerity that Shin-hye brings to every role she plays, most recently on ‘Memories of the Alhambra,’ we know ‘Call’ will be no exception. In the Netflix K-drama, her Hee joo was a timid, determined and hardworking woman who refused to take no for an answer.
A hard-core fan of the actress told MEAWW, "Park Shin Hye is a queen and watching her on-screen has always been exciting for me. Her acting melts my heart. Her beauty totally entices me.”
Clearly there many reasons why she is so beloved worldwide and ‘Call’ will give her fans another one.
