BEIJING, Dec 26 (Xinhuanet) -- South Korean actress Song Hye-kyo has expressed her satisfaction with the qipao she wore when filming the Chinese martial-arts movie "The Grandmaster".

In the 1930s-era film, Song plays the wife of the title character, martial-arts legend Yip Man.

"Wearing a qipao made me feel uneasy at first," the actress was quoted by as saying about the traditional body-hugging Chinese dress. "But gradually I realized its beauty."

Song also spoke highly of her co-star Tony Leung Chiu-wai, who plays Yip Man.

"He was charming and spoke with his eyes," she said. "I almost melted."

"The Grandmaster" also stars Zhang Ziyi as a woman who inherits her family's kung-fu skills.

The film, directed by Wong Kar-wai, is slated to open in Chinese cinemas on January 8. It will be the opening film of the 2013 Berlin International Film Festival in February.
