Directorial Debut of Producer PAEK Seung-hwan
Character actor CHO Dal-hwan took on the lead role in the indie drama Like the First Glass (translated title), the debut feature film of producer and short film director PAEK Seung-hwan. The film, which co-stars veteran actor SHIN Gu and new actress WOO Hye-rim (aka Hye-rim of the K-pop outfit Wonder Girls) completed production earlier this summer.
CHO Dal-hwan plays Lee Ho-yeon, a sales rep at a pharmaceuticals company who hides his warm nature from others around him. CHO’s recent credits include the period zombie film Rampant (2018), the geriatric serial killer thriller The Chase (2017) and the period drama The Royal Tailor (2014).
Like the First Glass, which is being financed by KT and produced by PAEK Gurim, is aiming for release at some point this fall.
