London Korean Film Night: Actresses (2009)


In 2009 Director E created yet another first for Korean cinema with his satirical mockumentary piece The Actresses. The casting includes six of Korea’s leading actresses who were also each credited as scriptwriters. Inspired by the off-camera personalities of the female leads that he had worked with over the years, E asked the six women to simply play themselves. Set in Seoul on Christmas Eve, the six actresses prepare for a photo shoot. The piece is a film of improvisation and personal stories that took two weeks to shoot. What ensues is an exploration of their lives and the public and private challenges that fame brings in modern Korea.
