Literally 1 second.
I got a glimpse of Firstborn on TV in the Jessica Soho GMA show, May 5, 2012 episode.
This picture was taken during Maui Taylor’s first shooting day in South Korea for the movie “The Taste of Money” which is officially in competition in the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. I have the same stills taken on the same spot with the same actors… but I believe my own take of the same picture was not published (not even in my private FB account). I actually checked my FB pictures and those published there were from different angles.

The line-up of movies for the 2012 Cannes Film Festival had been announced. South Korea’s The Taste of Money directed by Im Sang Soo is officially in competition.
visually powerful teaser
Casts include Kim Kang-woo, Kim Hyo-jin, Baek Yoon-sik and Yoon Yeo-joong. Filipina actress Maui Taylor portrays the important role of Eva, the Filipina nanny hired by the powerful chaebol family.
Filipinos in South Korea would be excited to see their faces in the big screen in South Korea in May. Many Filipinos were hired as extras in some scenes. Oh, some Cebuanos might catch a glimpse of their faces, too as the last scenes were filmed in Cebu.
Director Im Sang-soo’s 2010 film “The Housemaid” was screened in the 2010 Cinemanila International Film Festival where he bagged the Best Director Award and Ms. Yeon Yeo-joong got the Best Actress award. This new film is considered as the sequel to “The Housemaid”. Will it be also invited to this year’s Cinemanila International Film Festival? Let’s keep our fingers crossed:-).
And uhmmmm… Firstborn has a minor role in the movie. That’s how he got to have his first business trip at the age of 5.
