Human Drama to Start Production in Mid-October
SUL Kyung-gu looks set to join the human drama Perfect Man. From director YONG Soo, the film is also reported to feature CHO Jin-
woong. The film chronicles the bromance between a high-powered lawyer who does everything to make money and a man who works as a volunteer at a nursing home.
Top star SUL is coming off a busy 2017 that saw him draw stellar reviews in the Cannes-invited crime drama The Merciless (2017) and star in the hit serial killer thriller MEMOIR OF A MURDERER (2017) as well as take on a special appearance in the political drama smash 1987: When the Day Comes (2017). The actor hasn’t taken a break in 2018 either, as he currently has three films nearing release, including the drama Role Models and the high school thriller I Want to See Your Parents Faces while recently he has been shooting the Sewol-themed drama Birthday (working title) with JEON Do-
The busy actor was also recently confirmed to be teaming up with The Merciless director BYUN Sung-
hyun once more for the political drama Long Live the King, though that project is still in development and will go into production after Perfect Man.
CHO is coming off the hit action-thriller Believer, which topped five million admissions early this summer, and is currently in theaters with the espionage drama The Spy Gone North. The in-demand star also recently completed shooting the period film The Clowns. He will next be on screen in the high concept comedy-drama Intimate Strangers.
From investor and distributor Showbox, Perfect Man is expected to start principal photography in mid-October.
