koreans making the leap to hollywood

Here's an article on from the KOFIC website about a number of Korean actors who are making the leap over to roles in American films: Korean Stars in Hollywood. It mentions Park Joong-hoon, who will be starring in the comedy Bibimbap opposite My Big Fat Greek Wedding's Nia Vardalos. As reported here earlier this year, Jeon Ji-hyun will be starring in the Hollywood remake of the Japanese anime film Blood: The Last Vampire. And of course, Jeong Jun-ho will soon be seen in Mike Kang's gangster film West 32nd. Good stuff. That's a lot of Koreans coming to a theater near you...

Speaking of Korea, Kaiju Shakedown recently posted some photos leaked from the set of the Hollywood remake of My Sassy Girls: COMPARE AND CONTRAST: NEW VS. OLD SASSY GIRL. More photos here. I'm sorry, but Elisha Cuthbert is no Jeon Ji-hyun.
