The actress was invited as the lead of The Grandmasters, which has been chosen as the opening film for the 63rd Berlinale. She is the first Korean actress to be invited to one of the top three film festivals of the world as the lead of the opening film.
She, however, will probably not be attending due to her filming schedules for her SBS drama Wind Blows in Winter. The opening ceremony for the festival is held on February 7, but her drama will air its first episode on February 13.
The source added, "She′s trying to fix her schedule, but there are many obstacles in her drama schedule blocking her from attending. She will be making her decision soon."
Another source said, "The press conference for Wind Blows in Winter coincides with the schedules of the Berlinale, which means it will be near impossible for her to fly to Berlin."
The Grandmasters has premiered in China, and earned 30 million yuan (5.1 billion won) on its first day.
