New black comedy Punk (Korean title) entered production on June 25. Featuring PARK Yong-woo and character actress CHO Eun-

Veteran actor PARK’s notable credits include KIM Dai-
seung ’s Blood Rain (2005), CHO Ui- seok ’s The World of Silence (2006) and CHO Geun- hyun ’s Late Spring (2014). CHO was recently seen in JUNG Byung- gil ’s action film The Villainess (2017) and KIM Jin- muk ’s thriller TRUE FICTION.

jae worked in several capacities in the film industry before making waves with his 2009 short film Promise of a Spring Day (2009), which screened at the 33rd Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival.
Punk received independent film support by both the Korean Film Council in 2017 and the Gyeonggi Provincial Promotion Agency in 2018.
