MY ANNOYING BROTHER Director Returns with Fantasy Comedy-Drama
Actors SON Ho-jun and LEE Kyu-hyung will appear in the new fantasy comedy-drama Stellar (literal title). The project will be helmed by MY ANNOYING BROTHER (2016) director KWON Soo-kyung.
SON Ho-jun will appear as Yeong-bae, a top rental car dealer who inherits a car named ‘Stellar’ from this father, which he must use to track down a high-end supercar that was lost by his friend Dong-sik, played by LEE Kyu-hyung.
Though better known for his TV work, SON Ho-jun has nevertheless accumulated a range of roles in film, including the summer road trip comedy Three Summer Night (2015) and the MMA action-thriller Big Match (2014). Earlier this year he starred opposite the great KIM Hae-sook in the family drama A Diamond in the Rough.
Co-star LEE Kyu-hyung appeared in the trial dramas Innocent Witness and Juror 8 this year, and will soon be seen opposite SHIN Min-a in the diving drama Diva.
Director KWON scored a hit with his family comedy MY ANNOYING BROTHER with JO Jung-suk and DOH Kyung-soo, which welcomed close to three million viewers in late 2016. He previously helmed the drama Barefoot Ki-Bong (2006).
Stellar kicked off production on September 3 and is expected to find its way into theaters in 2020.
