South Korean idol Hyomin to make her Japanese movie debut in “Jinx!!!”
Hyomin previously starred in the South Korean horror movie “Ghastly” (Gisaeng Ryung), but this project will mark her Japanese film debut. She’ll play a South Korean exchange student named Ji-Ho who gets to know Kaede (Shimizu) and Yusuke (Yamazaki) at a Japanese university. Kaede and Yusuke can’t seem to honestly convey their feelings for each other, so Ji-Ho takes it upon herself to play matchmaker while teaching them the Korean formula for successful romance.
Filming of “Jinx!!!” will take place from mid-February to mid-March in Kitakyushu, Fukuoka, and Korea. It’s slated for release this fall in Japan and will be distributed by Robot Communications throughout Asia.
