Then, in 1935, she took on the role of ‘Chun Hyang’ in the first talkie film ‘Chunhyangjeon’, and rose to the top star of the time. In 1935’s “Arirang Pass” directed by Hong Gae Myung, Moon Ye Bong and Noh Jae Shin played the lead role. The movie is about the difficulties that Arang, who was born into a stubborn noble family, falls in love with Chil Seong, the son of a servant who grew up with her as a child.
