Rhee’s character is Mrs. Choi (mother of the boy who massacred the Virginia Tech students and the professors a few years ago, which was in the news).
” This story is about the aftermath of this massacre and the views of each of his family,” said Rhee, “and I’m sure a lot of people remember this story. They flew me to Virgina last year and shot this within a week. I had to go through a lot of of soul searching to do this role.”
