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.
