The story features KIM as a surgeon suffering from a terminal illness whose only wish is to see the girlfriend who perished in an accident 30 years prior. He meets a mysterious old man who provides him with ten magical pills that can transport him back in time. He goes back, hoping to save his girlfriend, and meets his younger self.
KIM’s name has become synonymous with blockbusters over the past decade, as he’s headlined such notable hits as The Chaser (2008), Woochi (2009) and The Thieves (2012). Joining him on screen as his younger self is the rising star BYUN Yo-han, whose short list of credits already includes Cold Eyes (2013), Socialphobia (2015) and Madonna (2015), as well as the smash hit TV series Misaeng (2014). Will You Be There? co-stars KIM Ko-woon (Overman, 2015) and KIM Sang-ho (Haemoo, 2014).
Director HONG debuted by The Naked Kitchen in 2009 and most recently helmed the romantic omnibus Marriage Blue (2013). She also took part in the anthologies Horror Stories (2012) and Modern Family (2012).
