Park Si-yeon, who is set to appear in a new movie starring Morgan Freeman and Clive Owen called "The Last Knights," will leave for the Czech Republic to begin shooting in early December.
The movie, a joint project between Korean and Hollywood studio, is a fantasy epic about a band of warriors who seek revenge on a corrupt emperor.
Park said she initially had reservations about participating in the project as she believed it would be too much of a challenge, but her husband motivated her to give it a shot.
"Frankly, I'm a little scared about going there all by myself. The production system will be very different from how we do things in Korea, so I may have a hard time for a while, but hopefully it'll also be fun. It's amazing to be given the opportunity to work with an actor like Morgan Freeman, who I have watched in movies since I was young, and I expect I'll be able to learn a lot from him," she said.
Park is planning to focus on her family after the project. "I think I'll be able to wrap up shooting by the end of this year, so I'm hoping to take some rest and have a baby next year. When it comes to true happiness, I guess it's all about finding the right balance of family and work," she said.
"I couldn't take care of all the house chores for about four months" while shooting KBS soap "The Innocent Man," which ended recently, she admitted.
"My husband didn't know I'd often have to work all through the night. As he knew I was so tired from shooting, he was always very considerate and supported me to focus on the show without worrying about anything else," she said.
