New Detective Film Starts Shooting in March
After winning in the 2006 Makdong Scenario Contest, Tam-jung
(working title) which translates to detective in Korean, is finally about to go into production. The film has been raising attention due to its two top stars, KWON Sang-woo
and SUNG Dong-il
KWON will play Dae-man, a family man who runs a comic book shop. Dae-man has an odd hobby of leading a profiling club as well as a blog that studies criminal cases. With his keen interest in solving mysteries, Dae-man gets drawn in a real murder case involving his friends and partners with Detective NOH. SUNG Dong-il will take the role of Detective NOH, who has keen intuition.
It is a welcome comeback for KWON who last filmed in Korea in 2011 with JUNG Ryeo-won in Pain
. Since then, KWON has been more active in the Chinese entertainment industry and recently finished his third Chinese film Honey Enemy
with Kitty ZHANG.
SUNG Dong-il has consistently been active, generally appearing in at least two films per year. His most recent film, Chronicle of a Blood Merchant
, is currently in theaters. SUNG has also been building up his fandom through TV roles in It’s Okay, That’s Love
and Reply 1994
, as well as the variety show Dad! Where Are We Going?.
