PARK Ha- seon ’s next work will be as the lead in the upcoming indie film Confession (translated title). The film will be the sophomore work of Overman (2016) director SEO Eun-young.
The performer will play a social welfare worker who becomes caught up at the center of a murder case when a child goes missing.
PARK’s character cannot tolerate seeing injustice, particularly the abuse suffered by mistreated children.
After first making a splash on the big screen in the horror film A.P.T (2006), PARK featured in the drama Ba:Bo (2008), indie I Came from Busan (2010), melodrama Champ (2011) and rom-com Love Clinique (2012) before taking a break from the big screen to focus on her TV roles. She returned with a pair of late summer titles last year, including as a police academy instructor in the smash hit Midnight Runners (2017) and with a special appearance in the heist comedy Roman Holiday (2017).
Director SEO’s first film Overman debuted at the Busan International Film Festival in 2015, where it earned the Daemyung Culture Wave Award.
Confession is currently in the middle of production and is expected to wrap up at the end of August. Production is being handled by Parade Pictures, which was also responsible for Overman.
