South Korea's Ahn's World Production has begun principal photography on its first feature in three years, a romantic comedy to be shot by 25-year old female director Moh Ji-eun.
Moh, a graduate of the prestigious Korean Academy of Film Arts (KAFA), is believed to be the youngest Korean filmmaker ever to direct a studio production. "If it weren't for the success of other women filmmakers in the industry, I probably would never have received this opportunity," she says. Titled If You Know Someone Nice, Introduce Me (literal translation), the film stars Shin Eun-kyung and Jung Jun-ho, the popular leads from smash hits My Wife Is A Gangster and My Boss, My Hero.
The film centres around the manager of a dating agency who falls in love with one of her employees.
Financed by IM Pictures with Cinema Service taking local distribution rights, the film is expected to wrap in May, to be followed by a release in late summer.
