Top Korean actor Lee Byung Hun and actress Im Soo Jung graced the cover of the fashion magazine Bazaar Korea in their role as Cinema Angels. The Cinema Angel Project is a small foundation set up by actors and actresses who sought a way to promote balanced development of Korea’s film industry. It been working with Bazaar every year.
The featured actors for this year’s Cinema Angel Project are Lee Byung Hun, of I Saw the Devil fame, and Im Soo Jung, who will be on the tube later this year in First Love. The two have yet to share a scene in film or on a TV series, but both were quick to agree to the project. They were eager to join the effort, saying, “We were seeking such an opportunity to help. It is something we have wanted to do as actors here in Korea.”
Lee and Im showed their professional side at the photo shoot and were also amiable and agreeable, making the atmosphere on the set a great place to work for all involved.
The year 2010 marks the fourth year of the Cinema Angel Project. Sponsored by Burberry, all proceeds will be given to the Cinema Angel Foundation with Lee, Im, and Bazaar’s stamp on them. Cinema Angel Foundation has in the past supported Korean indie films that were unable to open in theaters because of financial and situational deficiencies, which have been a real setback for the Korean film industry.
Lee Byung Hun and Im Soo Jung’s angelic appearance and interviews will appear in the September issue of Bazaar.
