Jung Ho Yeon’s New Upcoming Film and Series
On March 17, as reported by Variety, Jung Ho Yeon was cast for a psychological thriller series named “Disclaimer.” The upcoming series is based on Renée Knight’s first novel of the same name. The story follows a woman named Catherine Ravenscroft and an old man named Stephen Brigstocke.
One day, Catherine receives a self-published novel titled “The Perfect Stranger” with the usual disclaimer written in works of fiction “… any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.” However, she realizes the novel tells untold stories from her past when she reads it.
In the “Disclaimer” series, Jung Ho Yeon will play the role of a girl named Kim, who works for Catherine Ravenscroft. Meanwhile, Catherine Ravenscroft will be portrayed by Cate Blanchett. Kim is described as ambitious, hardworking, and eager-to-please. She adores Catherine Ravenscroft as a successful documentary journalist, and working with her will be a breakthrough.
Moreover, Alfonso Cuarón will take part as the director, writer, and executive producer of the upcoming series. He is one of the best directors who ever won Best Director at the Academy Awards for his works for “Gravity” (2014) and “Roma” (2019).
Besides Cate Blanchett, Jung Ho Yeon will be starring alongside other Hollywood stars like Sachs Baron Cohen, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Kevin Kline.
On April 7, “Squid Game” Jung Ho Yeon has confirmed to star in “The Governesses.” In the film, the rookie actress will team up with Lily-Rose Depp of “The Idol” and Renate Reinsve of “The Worst Person of the World.”
The upcoming film will be the second project of director Joe Talbot with studio A24. His first project with the studio was “The Last Black Mac in San Francisco” in 2019. The movie has won the Sundance Festival Film for “Best Director” and “Special Jury Award.”
Further, A24 films also have bagged many awards. One of them is “Minari.” Veteran actress Youn Yuh Jung took home the Best Supporting Actress award for her role as grandma Soonja.
“The Governesses” is a film adaptation of a novel with the same title written by the French writer Anne Serre. The story follows three rebellious young governesses who turn upside down the family they work for. They inspire the boys in their care and ignite the couple’s fantasy who employ them. In addition, they leave their responsibilities for sensual adventures.
Yet, there’s no further information concerning the role that Jung Ho Yeon will take part in the upcoming film “The Governesses.”
