Han Ye-seul meets with "Twilight" producer
Top South Korean actress Han Ye-seul was belatedly known to have met with Hollywood producer Mark Morgan of "The Twilight Saga" series during his recent visit to Korea.
"The two met in Seoul and it is our understanding that Morgan did not meet with any other actresses during his visit," an official at Han's agency SidusHQ said on Tuesday.
The official refrained from answering whether there is a chance the actress could make an appearance in the next "Twilight" series but gave a positive response when asked if the issue could be regarded in a positive light. "Nothing has been set but we had a good conversation with Morgan," the official explained.
The meeting between Han and Morgan has also raised speculation that the actress may appear in the Hollywood remake of Korean horror flick "Phone". Morgan, founder of his own production company Imprint Entertainment, had been in Korea last week to attend a press conference announcing the remake which his company would take part in.
Ahn Byung-ki, who helmed the original version of "Phone" and has also been set to act as the director for the remake, had announced that it is highly likely a Korean actress will be cast for the Hollywood version.
Han, 28, is currently one of South Korea's most popular actresses who was born and raised in the United States before moving to Korea where she debuted as a supermodel in 2001.
She has appeared in several dramas and movie "Miss Gold Digger" for which she took the prize for best new actress in 2008 at Korea's major film awards, the Blue Dragon Film Awards and Daejong Film Awards. She currently stars in SBS TV series "Will It Snow for Christmas" alongside actor Ko Soo.
