Long gone are her long, brown tresses…
Megan Fox shocked her fans recently with her completely different look for her upcoming role. The 32-year-old was spotted sporting a blonde bob during the set of her new movie, Jangsa-ri 9.15, in which she portrays American war correspondent, Marguerite Higgins.
People commented on Meg’s new look in social media, writing:
Honestly cannot recognise Megan Fox when she’s wearing this blonde wig.
While another one tweeted:
Megan Fox, is that you?!
Yup, that was our reaction as well.
The Transformers star was pictured alongside Choi Moon-soon, governor of Gangwon Province, and it’s a completely different Megan from what we’re used to seeing.
Fox’s new movie is about Jangsa landing operation during the Korean war in 1950. The landing was commanded by US General, Douglas McArthur, and it was a very important part of the Battle of Incheon.
As for Marguerite Higgins, portrayed by Fox, she was a journalist and correspondent during the Korean, as well as Vietnam war. In 1952, Higgins released the book “War In Korea: The Report Of A Woman Combat Correspondent,” thus becoming the first ever woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for Foreign Correspondence.
The movie is still filming in Korea, and it was picked up by South Korean production house — Taewon Entertainment.
In a statement shared with Variety, a spokesperson for the production house said:
Fox is very passionate about her role and has spent time studying Higgins and preparing visual concepts.
Megan’s co-star in the movie is the veteran Korean actor, Kim Myung-min, who is portraying a guerilla task force commander, as well as rapper-turned-actor, Choi Min-ho, who’s playing a soldier.
Jangsa-ri 9.15 will be directed by Kwak Kyung-taek, better known for his record-breaking movie, Friend, that following its release, became the highest-grossing Korean movie.
