27 December 2013 / 2 years 10 months ago

Chinese actress Tang Wei has a huge fan base in Korea, especially after the release of her 2010 film "Late Autumn," in which she co-starred with popular Korean actor Hyun Bin.

In the romance film directed by Korean director Kim Tae-yong ― the film is also a remake of Korean director Lee Man-hee's iconic 1966 movie of the same title ― Tang starred as Anna, a Chinese-American prisoner who murdered her husband years ago and is released from jail for three days to attend her mother's funeral in Seattle.

During her short stay in the city, she falls for Hoon (played by Hyun), a marginalised Korean gigolo.

Tang is starring in another film that takes place in Seattle, this time with famed Chinese actor Wu Xiubo.

In the romantic comedy, titled "Finding Mr. Right," Tang plays Jiajia, a pregnant woman who arrives in Seattle to have her rich, married lover's baby.

At the airport Jiajia meets Frank (played by Wu), a driver who is there to pick her up; he used to work as a physician in Beijing.

The film arrives in Korean theatres next month, after enjoying much success in China. It grossed over $83 million, after being released in China in the spring.
