In the meantime, Phuc, Tung’s manager, is trying to steer him to romance a big starlet who can up the ante when it comes his career.

The latest and last film of Vietnamese American filmmaker Stephane Gauger (OWL AND THE SPARROW, SAIGON ELECTRIC), who sadly passed away soon after the release of this film, KISS & SPELL is a remake of the Korean film SPELLBOUND. A charming romancer with twists and turns, this latest version is also infused with a humanity that is a constant in all of Gauger’s films and a love letter to the city of Saigon.
