Back in July, it was revealed that Son Ye-jin of Crash Landing on You fame was in talks to make her Hollywood debut opposite Sam Worthington in Cross, which is directed by Andrew Niccol of In Time fame. Ye-jin's agency had also affirmed that the 38-year-old actress had a positive outlook on starring in the upcoming project as well.

In an interview with Elle Korea via Soompi, Ye-jin was asked about her Hollywood aspirations, to which the actress confessed that she didn't really have a desire to try something out like this as she's already overwhelmed with Korean projects. Ye-jin was afraid whether or not she could act well speaking a foreign language. "However, I started thinking about when I would ever be able to try something like this again. If I receive a good opportunity, I’ll happily work hard at it. I get the sense that I’ll get a lot out of it as I take it on," Ye-jin added.

For the unversed, Cross' storyline is set in the future with a country divided into two nations, a wealthy one and an impoverished one. The main characters will be caught in between these two nations. If Ye-jin does accept the offer to take on Cross as her next project, she will play Vera, a tough woman who is a single mother living near the border of the impoverished nation.

Son Ye-jin will do great here in Hollywood because her acting ability, her strength in her emotional characters and in my personal opinion that's why she is a great actress. Son Ye-jin lo hará muy bien aquí en Hollywood debido a su capacidad de actuación, su fuerza en sus personajes emocionales y, en mi opinión personal, es por eso que es una gran actriz.

Son Ye Jin, the need is the other way around...Hollywood needs new faces and new talent opportunity like yesterday!! They have overrun the mileage they could get on 20th Century actors. If hollywood is to survive this transition to the new century, it will be because generous actors like you are willing to squeeze us in your tight schedule! Thanks (and bring some of your other friends from CLOY w/you!) from a huge American fan!

SYJ is a good actress & she is lucky that CLOY propelled her to international fame. Due to Covid 19 all are home bound so there are more viewers. Appearance wise she is pleasant looking, attractive in her own way. Not exactly beautiful to the 'T'.

I had hoped that Son Ye jin would crossover to doing movies here in the USA. I'm so happy to read that she will. Her acting in CLOY stole my heart and let me glimpse into other cultures. I saw that we as human beings aren't so different after all. She made me LMBO in several scenes as well as cry, and route for their love. Congratulations and Welcome to America.

She is truly one of the best actors in the world right now! Tremendous emotional depth. You can tell she really works hard and prepares for her roles and for each scene! I also think she is one of the most beautiful women in the world - frozen in a still it may not show, however, as she acts her beauty comes thru from the inside and is undeniable.
