26 Dec – South Korean actress Song Hye-kyo recently talked about working with award-winning actor Tony Leung Chiu-Wai and her love for the traditional attire, qipao.

As reported on Groove Asia, the "Full House" actress recently told the media that she has learned to love the traditional body-hugging dress that she has to wear while filming the Chinese martial-arts movie "The Grandmaster".

Song, who plays the wife of martial arts legend Ip Man in the movie, stated, "Wearing a qipao made me feel uneasy at first, but little by little, I realised its beauty."

The actress was also full of praises for her co-star, Tony Leung Chiu-Wai, who plays Ip Man, stating, "He was charming and spoke with his eyes. I almost melted."

After two years in the making, Wong Kar-wai's "The Grandmaster" is scheduled to be released on 8 January. The movie, starring Tony Leung, Chang Chen, Zhang Ziyi and Song Hye-gyo, will also be the opening film of the 2013 Berlin International Film Festival in February.
