My Sassy Girl′s sequel, My Second Sassy Girl, starring Cha Tae Hyun and f(x)′s Victoria will begin shooting.

As the sequel of My Sassy Girl, which started the hallyu boom in 2001, My Second Sassy Girl, a Korean-Chinese production, will begin filming at the end of September in Busan.

The Cha Tae Hyun-Jun Ji Hyun starring movie started the My Sassy Girl syndronme, being raved about in Korean, Japanese, Chinese and South East Asian markets.

The production company, SinCine, cast Cha Tae Hyun to continue his character as Geon Woo and Victoria as the second sassy girl. Just as the movie′s title states, the sassiness of Geon Woo′s second lady will be shown.

My Second Sassy Girl is a romantic comedy about a crazy newlywed life. Victoria will appear as Geon Woo′s first love from elementary school, who was made fun of due to her lack of Korean skills.

Unable to forget his sassy girl who left, Geon Woo ends up running into his first love again by fate and marrying her, despite the objections of those around him. While he succeeds in marriage, he soon finds himself in a newlywed life that no man would be jealous of. As the character of the lovable sassy girl, who is not so good in Korean, was being written in in the scenario creation process, Victoria was naturally suggested for the role for her bright optimistic image.

Having held the goal of expanding the grounds of Korean movies for the past few decades, SinCine will finally be taking steps into creating a global project.

With its start in 1989 with the movie Happiness Isn′t Based on Scores, SinCine has seen a 80 percent success rate in its films, naturally planning and producing the upcoming movie as part of a Korean-Chinese Asia Project for the Asian markets.

As of 2014, China′s movie market is number 2 in the world, and number 1 in Asia. Many Korean movie-affiliated people have knocked on the doors of China and a few directors have entered, but it′s reality that the walls of the market as quiet high.

To open the doors of the hallyu movie market, SinCine chose to make this movie into a Korean-Chinese production, choosing the Chinese investment company and co-production partner, Beijing Skywheel Entertainment.

My Second Sassy Girl will be directed by Jo Geun Sik, who has directed Conduct Zero in 2002 and That Summer in 2006.

My Second Sassy Girl will begin filming at the end of September and premiere in Korea and China in May of 2015.
