And now it's time for our daily arts and culture segment with Michelle Kim. In the Thursday edition, she brings us the latest on new and upcoming movies from Korea and abroad.
[Reporter : ] Hello Conn-young
So what movies do you have for us today[Reporter : ] Well, today I'll tell you about three new movies starring three of Korea's most respected vetran actresses -- Cho Min-soo, Yeom Jung-ah and Lee Mi-yeon. Take a look.
Older actresses don't always get the most exciting roles, but this fall, three veteran actresses are front and center as the stars of some of the season's most highly anticipated films.
Cho Min-soo was a household name in Korea but little known abroad when her star turn in Kim Ki-duk's latest film "Pieta" propelled her into the international spolight. The film won the golden lion award at the Venice International Film Festival and she won rave reviews for her detailed portrayal of maternal love, revenge, and forgiveness.
Actress Yeom Jeong-ah returned to the big screen after a five-year hiatus with her starring role in the film "Spy." The film tells the story of a North Korean spy who spends 10 years living undercover in the South before she is called back into action and her ordinary life gets turned upside down.
Actress Lee Mi-yeon is also returning to film after five years to star in the film "A Company Man" alongside So Ji-seob and Kim Dong-jun. In the film, Lee plays a mother of two who once had a promising career as a singer. To prepare for her role, Lee studied singing and guitar.
