Tokyo Hive reports that Shinoda Mariko will be in the upcoming film ‘Inu to Anata no Monogatari – Inu no Eiga’, a collection of funny/dramatic short stories involving dogs and their owners. It’s not confirmed if her role is a large one, but it’s something I’ll keep on my radar as more news comes out. The film is to be released on January 22nd of the new year.
Shinoda’s first large role in ‘Majisuka Gakuen’ surprisingly proved that she has more than enough capacity to act so the more I see her in film, the better. In the perfect world, she’d be starring in roles befitting of Bae Doona, one of my favorite Korean actresses who played great characters in ‘Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance’, ‘The Host’, ‘Linda Linda Linda’, and ‘Air Doll’. Mariko’s sense of humor and lanky body-type could definitely pull it off.
Man, what if Bae Doona and Shinoda Mariko co-starred in a movie directed by Bong Joon Ho (Director of Barking Dogs Don’t Bite, Memories of Murder, The Host, and Mother)?!? It would be my most anticipated film ever.
…I can dream.
