Song Kang Ho and Shin Se Kyung attended the press conference for their upcoming movie “Blue Salt” on August 23 at CGV Wangsimni.  Shin looked gorgeous in a draped gray and black dress.

During the conference, Shin shared her positive feelings about working opposite one of Korea’s best actors.  “The fact that I was able to work with Song Kang Ho was a big honor for me,” said the actress.  “I have a long ways to go, but I was really surprised to get this special opportunity… I had a lot of concerns but Song Kang Ho helped a lot and led the way.” 

“Now I’m in love with him,” Shin added laughingly.

Song Kang Ho addressed the 23-year age discrepancy between the onscreen pairing.  “I’m afraid people might shrivel from embarrassment, seeing two actors with huge age gaps work together,” he said with a smile.

He also joked about his tough guy image.  “It’s my fourth time playing a mob role, but I’ve been getting promoted every time and now I’m the boss!  I think being a mobster is the perfect job to show a character’s dramatic life, and that’s why it appears a lot in Korean movies.”

“Blue Salt” is about the complicated relationship between an ex-mafia boss and an assassin who has been hired to kill him.
