Song Hye Kyo in Pusan International Film Festival 2008

Song Hye Kyo unveiled her new movie "Make Yourself at Home", at the 13th Pusan (Busan) International Film Festival on 5 October 2008. Song Hye Kyo, one of the best known Korean actresses in Asia, work on this independent film by first-time Korean-American director Sohn Soo Pum. A joint U.S.-Korea production, "Make Yourself at Home" is a psychological thriller about a woman shaman Sook-hee (Song Hye Kyo), who chooses to live an ordinary life in the United States. She marries a Korean-American named Peter, played by Arno Frisch.

Song Hye Kyo's role as a femme fatale, is a little break through to the actress who has played mostly sweet, innocent characters in popular Korean dramas like "Full House" and "All In".

On the movie's challenges : "The role was a challenge because it is a character that I have never played before. I didn't choose it to change my image, I chose the work because I liked the overall feeling I got from reading the scenario,"

(Her dialogue in the film is about 80 percent in English) "It was really difficult. The staff all turned into English teachers and corrected my pronunciation. I am grateful to them,"
On hopes of making it to Hollywood following in the steps of other Korean stars like Kim Yun Jin and Rain Ji-Hoon : "I believe that I can work hard to make it to Hollywood, by steadily making movies. The film is not necessarily a Hollywood debut for me, rather it is an independent American movie. I was very comfortable acting because I was working with people who loved movies."
