The dreamy Jang Dong-gun is trying to steal the hearts of Chinese ladies this time by starring in Chinese film “Dangerous Liaisons,” directed by Hur Jin-ho.
Although the A-list Hallyu star manages to secure box office success most of the time, his actress wife Ko So-young was concerned about her husband’s appearance in the movie, not because he’s turning into a Casanova in the movie that also stars Chinese actresses Zhang Ziyi and Cecilia Cheung, but because all the lines were in Chinese, which forced the actor to stay up day and night practicing.
“I reassured her by saying that the director of the movie is Hur Jin-ho,” said Jang, who recently secured more fans by appearing in the hit-drama “A Gentleman’s Dignity,” in which he plays a bold and scrupulous architect.
In “Dangerous Liaisons,” Jang acts as a born womanizer in Shanghai’s demimonde quarters during the 1930s.
Before the movie, based on a French novel of the same title authored by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos, gets released in Korea on Oct. 11, the JoongAng Ilbo sat down with Jang. The following are excerpts from the interview.
