Han Chae Young has put off her comeback in Korea after deciding to focus on her participation in a joint Korea-New Zealand movie production.
According to BH Entertainment, Han Chae Young will leave the production of KBS2TV Fashion King where she was originally set to collaborate with Cha Seung Won and Nam Gyuri. She will instead focus on preparing herself for the movie Soulmates which will be filmed in New Zealand in January 2009.
The original plan was for Han Chae Young to film Fashion King first and then starting work on Soulmates after the earlier has ended. But with KBS delaying the filming many times, it has led to a conflict in filming schedule with Soulmates. After analysing the situation, Han Chae Young decided to delay her comeback in Korea and cancel her participation in Fashion King.
Soulmates will be the first-ever joint Korea-New Zealand movie production and will be directed by Scott Reynolds from New Zealand. Han Chae Young got the leading female role thanks to her outstanding acting ability and english speaking skills. The movie could be a stepping stone into Hollywood for Han Chae Young as it will be shown in New Zealand, America, Canada, etc.
