HAN Jae-rim Produced Thriller to Lens This Month
Initially unveiled during last year’s Busan International Film Festival (BIFF), ROH Deok’s sophomore film Journalist has now finalized casting and will begin principal photography before the end of the month. JO Jung-suk, LEE Ha-na and LEE Mi-sook lead the cast of the incoming thriller.
JO will play a journalist caught up in a race to catch a scoop when a big murder case unfolds. The film will detail the ruthless and at times unethical world of news reporting. LEE Ha-na will play JO’s character wife while LEE Mi-sook is on board as his boss. Also starring in the film will be veteran performers KIM Eui-sung (Hill of Freedom), BAE Sung-woo (Way Back Home, 2013), KIM Dae-myung (The Target) and TAE In-ho (Ode to My Father).
Following his breakthrough in Architecture 101 (2012), his award-winning turn in The Face Reader (2013) and lead part in the hit romcom My Love My Bride, JO has quickly risen to leading man status. LEE Ha-na, generally active on the small screen, returns to theaters for the first time since 2012’s R2B: Return to Base. Meanwhile, LEE Mi-sook has been a major star since the mid-80s, when she headlined classics such as Whale Hunting (1984) and Mulberry (1986).
