Sylvia Sanchez is having a worthwhile trip in France as she did not only get to attend the Cannes Film Festival but also met “Squid Game” lead actor Lee Jung-jae.
Sanchez gave a glimpse of their meeting where she appears to be saying something to the Korean actor while he looks at her, as seen on her Instagram page yesterday, May 22.
“It was nice meeting you, Mr. Lee Jung-jae,” she said.
The actress appears to have met the actor during a “K-Movie Night” event at Cannes.
Sanchez is apparently in Cannes Festival with Liza Diño, the chairperson of the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) as Sanchez expressed admiration to Diño, via Sanchez’s Instagram page last Tuesday, May 17. The actress showed Diño having a conversation with other delegates.
“Hindi biro ang ginagawa mo as FDCP Chairman dito sa Cannes Festival. Nawitness ko lahat ngayong araw na ito kung paano mo inaangat, pinagmamalaki ang Pelikulang Pilipino, ang industriya natin,” Sanchez stated. “Napaka-hands on mo, buong-buo ang puso mo, hindi matawaran ninuman ang passion mo at pagmamahal mo sa industriya natin.”
(Your responsibilities as FDCP Chairman in the Cannes [Film] Festival is not a joke. Today, I witnessed how you uplifted and took pride in Filipino films and our movie industry. You are very hands on and you are giving your whole heart for this. No one can match your passion and love for our film industry.)
According to FDCP, the country’s delegation attended the film festival with a “goal to boost the international presence of the Philippines.”
Meanwhile, Lee Jung-jae is at the festival for the world premiere of his directorial and screenwriting debut with the spy thriller film “Hunt.” The Korean actor made his Cannes debut after the success of “Squid Game,” where he will return for the much-anticipated season two of the series. JB
