“Persona” is a new short film project that will feature IU in four different stories told by four different directors: Im Pil Sung, Lee Kyung Mi, Kim Jong Kwan, and Jeon Go Woon. IU will play an entirely different character in each of the four films, which were all inspired by the actress.
The preview begins with Lee Kyung Mi’s “Love Set,” in which IU plays a heated game of tennis with her father’s girlfriend (played by Bae Doona). The second film, Im Pil Sung’s “Collector,” stars IU as a mysterious young woman with a secret. The third film, Jeon Go Woon’s “Kiss Burn,” stars IU as a spirited high school student who decides to help her friend get revenge. The fourth and final film, Kim Jong Kwan’s “Walking at Night,” tells the story of former lovers who meet in their dreams and share the things they couldn’t say in real life.
“Persona” will be released on Netflix on April 5.
