'Lost' star Yunjin Kim lands role in S. Korean thriller
Kim, 33, will start shooting "Seven Days" in late April after completing the third season of "Lost," said the Herald Business newspaper. It will be Kim's first South Korean film since "Diary Of June" in 2005.
The new movie tells the story of a cold-blooded lawyer focused only on winning her cases regardless of the truth. But trouble begins when her daughter is kidnapped and will be killed unless she frees a criminal from death row within seven days.
Kim, a South Korean who went to high school and college in the U.S., left her mark on South Korean cinema with "Swiri," a 1998 movie considered the first South Korean blockbuster, where she played a North Korean spy who falls in love with a South Korean intelligence agent.
"Lost" has made Kim an international star, playing a Korean marooned with her husband and other plane crash survivors on a mysterious tropical island.
The ABC drama is filmed in Hawai'i.
