A romantic comedy, which gathers South Korean veteran actor Sang-Woo Kwon and Taiwan actor-singer Wallace Huo Jianhua, has recently been announced due for release in September.
Qing Di Mi Yue or literally translated into "Honey Enemy" tells a story of a girl who still thinks about her ex-boyfriend and has devised a funny plan to regain his heart.
Taiwan actor Wallace Huo, who has established his reputation after acting in Xian Jian Qi Xia Zhuan San or "Chinese Paladin III" in 2009, acts the girl's ex-boyfriend called Xu Mo.
"I think my role in the movie is an honest man. Although he turned sour occasionally with his ex-girl friend, he eventually showed his loyalty to his present girl who is all along with him. So I believe he's a truthful person."
Actress Shi Yufei, who started her career appearing in an advertisement with Taiwan pop star Jay chou when she was 18 years old, acts as a wealthy heiress, who is also Xu Mo's new girlfriend.
In this film she also needs to cooperate with Kwon Sang-Woo who plays another main character. She explains the feeling in their cooperation.
"I am a big fan of Wallace Huo Jianhua and Kwon Sang-Woo. I'm very interested in many of their movies and TV series that I had watched before. When I acted with Kwon Sang-Woo, I felt I was seemingly in a K-drama."
Since the movie is a co-production between Chinese and South Korean film talents, part of the scenes were filmed in South Korea.
The movie not only enables the audience to appreciate beautiful landscapes in South Korea but also provides the cast members with an opportunity to travel while working.
Wallace Huo feels excited about their shooting experience in Jeju Island, a popular vacation spot for Koreans and many Japanese.
"In the past, I acted in lots of Chinese historic dramas in ancient costumes feeling afar from our real life. This movie provides me with a nice work environment and an opportunity to dress me in comfortable daily wear clothes, and all these conditions have made me feel at ease when acting. Also for quite a long time, I hadn't travelled abroad. Since this movie was shot in Jeju Island, I enjoyed the picturesque landscape there."
Directed by Zhang Linzi, "Honey Enemy" also stars 29-year old Chinese actress Zhang Yuqi. And probably due to a divorce announcement made by Zhang's director husband, Wang Quan'an just on July 3. The movie would also reportedly be the only romantic comedy to be released on the Chinese mainland in September.
