Pop Star Min of Miss A to Co-Star in Thriller-Horror
A new thriller-horror is on the way with actors KIM In-kwon and LEE Chae-eun already signed up to head the cast. Suni, which is expected to hit screen at some point next summer, will also feature CHOI Ri, JEONG Kyeo-woon, JI Soo-won, LEE Mi-do and LEE Min-young, aka Min from K-pop girl group Miss A.
Funnyman KIM will play the part of BAEK Dong-po, a detective who becomes involved in a serial killer case in a small village. He comes to suspect a girl called Suni, who will be played by LEE Chae-eun. The tale follows the young girl’s revenge as a victim of child abuse and is said to be drawn from real life events.
Known for his comic supporting parts in films such as The Himalayas (2015), The Tower (2012) and Masquerade (2012), KIM has also come into his own as a leading man in films such as Apostle (2014).
Child star LEE most recently featured alongside SON Ye-jin in Colonial Era drama The Last Princess. The film will mark the second film role of pop star Min, following her debut in 2011 thriller Countdown.
Suni will be the directorial debut of JI Seong-won, who was the scriptwriter of 2007 horror Muoi: The Legend Of A Portrait.
