On Sep 22nd, we met actress Jung Soo-jung of the movie “Cobweb” (directed by Kim Jee-woon) at a cafe in Sogyeok-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul and talked about various topics.
“Cobweb” is about director Kim Yeol (Song Kang-ho), who is obsessed with the fact that the ending of the movie Cobweb, which was filmed in the 1970s, would be better if remade.

We don’t talk about it but we watch and support each other from behind. We don’t really know what the other is doing”, adding “But she knew that I wanted to do ‘Cobweb’ and cheered for me a lot when I filmed the movie. That’s why I wanted to show it to her”.
She continued, “My sister just arrived in Korea after flying from the US on the day of the VIP Premiere to attend it. After watching the movie, she kept repeating my lines over and over again”.
