Featuring PARK Bo-young and LEE Jong-suk
 

Running Turtle director LEE Yeon-woo is at the helm of a new film which began production earlier this month. Blood Boiling Youth (literal title) is a romantic comedy pairing two of Korea’s most popular young stars, PARK Bo-young and LEE Jong-suk. 
PARK Bo-young, who has been active on the big and small screen for several years, became of nationwide sensation following a pair of leading roles in last year’s fantasy melodrama A Werewolf Boy and the K-horror Don’t Click. LEE Jong-suk had similar success last year with the films As One and Soar into the Sun. He will also be seen alongside SONG Kang-ho in next month’s period drama The Face Reader.
 
LEE Yeon-woo made his debut as a filmmaker with the comedy 2424 in 2002 but it wasn’t until 2009 that his reputation as a director was sealed. His 2009 sophomore feature Running Turtle starred KIM Yun-seok and wound up with just over three million admissions at the local box office.
 
Set in a small village by the seaside, the film will detail the lives of four youths circa the 1980s. Both playing against type, LEE will take on the role of playboy Joong-gil while PARK will incarnate the punk Yeong-sook. Damso Film is in charge of production and will release the film in the first half of next year.
