BAE DOONA Is Ready For Her Extreme Close-up, Mr. deMille!

Ard Vijn, Associate Editor, Features
(It's been a while since we did one of these...)

There are many things worth looking at in the trailer for "Cloud Atlas" but one thesp in particular is noteworthy: the Korean actress Bae Doona.

Despite having been a Twitch favorite for... well, as long as there is Twitch basically, Bae Doona hasn't starred in that many films yet (so this quiz ought not to be the most difficult one in the series). And while she may not be exactly a supermodel in looks, with every single role she has managed to set my heart aflutter. Few actors can appear either so warm or cold, hesitant or bold, and stay as flat-out endearing as Bae Doona. She is one of those people who make stellar acting seem too easy.


So once again I'm going to use a turn in the Twitch-O-Meter to do a gallery of 5 close-ups of one of my favorite actors. Guess which 5 movies they're from. The shot above is from "Cloud Atlas" and does not count.
No competition, no prizes, just for fun, try to see how far you get without using IMDB.
And I'll post the answers on Tuesday (earlier if someone has all 5 of them right).
Good luck!

    Well, that was easy! :o.

    Been ages since I've seen Barking dogs, another viewing is long overdue!

  • Ard Vijn

    Well that didn't last long as bandidoidoido has them all correct!

    Congrats to bandidoidoido.

    Oh man, I remember being a kid watching her star in a supernatural thriller K-Drama called RNA, in which she played a young lady with psychic powers being hunted by shady organizations. I knew the Wachowski's were fans of Korean cinema, so this is pretty awesome to hear about BAE Doo-Na.

    My guesses:

    Barking Dogs Never Bite, The Host, Air Doll, Linda Linda Linda, and Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance.

    Blimey folks, give it a minute but that gallery SHOULD appear after a while...
