I've only seen Lee Young Ae in a couple of films (the rest of her slender filmography is not available here) but wanted to start a thread for her having seen Park Chan Wook's Sympathy for Lady Vengeance yesterday. Working with Park for the second time (the first was 2000's Joint Security Area) she delivers a teriffic performance as Lee Geum Ja, the Lady Vengeance of the title. She's also strong in JSA.
A little research reveals Lee to be almost intimidatingly smart, with degrees in both German Literature and Language and Theatre and Film. An award winning actress she's currently engaged in giving out awards; sitting alongside Charlotte Rampling on the jury for this year's Berlin film Festival.
So... Smart, talented and gorgeous, could it be anything but a YAY?
