  • The Chinese movie entitled "Dangerous Liaisons" held a production presentation in Beijing.

    "Dangerous Liaisons" (Chinese title "Weixian Guanxi"), which Korean director Heo Jin Ho will direct and starring Korean actor Jang Dong Gun as a protagonist, held the production presentation in Beijing on September 26. During the event held at LiJun Hotel located in Beijing, Heo said, "This will be my first attempt to make a blockbuster period drama with a huge budget, and I am highly anticipating directing this film. I will try my best to make a good film."

    A Chinese production company, China’s Zonbo Media, will invest around 100 million yuan (equal to 18.5 billion Korean won), and two Chinese actresses, Zhang Ziyi representing China and Cecilia Cheung representing Hong Kong, will appear as the two female protagonists. The movie is based on an original French novel, and it will portray complicated and mysterious relationships between a man and two women against the backdrop of Shanghai in the 1930s. The novel has also been produced as a movie in Korea entitled "Untold Scandal," in which actors Bae Yong Joon, Jeon Do Yeon, and Lee Mi Sook appeared, in 2003. Heo also revealed his thoughts on working with the star actors by saying, "This movie has to express the internal desire of human beings tensely, so I think that the way to deliver those feelings and emotions of the characters will be very important. I will try to talk to the actors as much as possible to effectively present those emotions in a tense manner." In addition, actor Jang Dong Gun said, "I have always wanted to work with Zhang Ziyi and Cecilia Cheung, so I am very glad that I can appear with them in the film."
