Song Hye Kyo Edges into Chinese Entertainment World

South Korean actress Song Hye Kyo landed in Shanghai on Tuesday for a brand promotion and updated the media on details of her latest work, a cooperation with famed Hong Kong director John Woo in the movie "1949."

"I have been learning the Chinese language, as well as Chinese history, since I signed the movie contract," the actress said. Chinese audiences will only accept my performance if I have adequate knowledge about their country.

This is the first move the South Korean actress has made toward her goal of entering the Chinese entertainment world, the Oriental Morning Post reported.

Rumors have abounded that the actress is planning to join the Chinese company that has groomed stars like Michelle Yeoh.

Song Hye Kyo will co-star with Hong Kong actor Chen Chang in "1949".

"He is a charming person, and I look forward to our cooperation," Song Hye Kyo said of her partner-to be. The two stars met at this year's Cannes Film Festival in May.
