Six actresses—Youn Yuh-jung,[7][8][9] Lee Mi-sook, Go Hyun-jung, Choi Ji-woo, Kim Min-hee and Kim Ok-bin, each portraying themselves—come together for a Vogue Korea magazine photo shoot at a studio in Cheongdam-dong, Seoul on Christmas Eve, resulting in a clash of egos between individuals not used to sharing the limelight.


Director E J-yong was first inspired to make the film after going out for a drink with actresses Youn Yuh-jung and Go Hyun-jung—both his close friends—and later recalled, "I wanted to create something unconventional. I wanted to show the public how charming actresses are in real life."[10][11] Yoon and Go were cast in the film alongside Lee Mi-sook, Choi Ji-woo, Kim Min-hee and Kim Ok-bin, each of them agreeing to take part without a guarantee.[12][13]

Actresses was made without a script, instead being filmed on a scene-by-scene basis with the actresses improvising their performances according to the given situation.[14] E noted: "I provided the basis for conflict and the actresses took it from there. The six women represent Korean actresses as a whole, and instead of creating something fictional I thought it would be interesting to feature each actress' charms and show something real."[15] The film includes a real-life confrontation between Go and Choi, with each admitting that their on-set relationship was strained, and Go saying that she felt envious of Choi's looks.[10][13][16][17][18]


Actresses was released in South Korea on December 10, 2009.[13] The film pulled in 508,243 admissions.[19]
