Trio of Stars Sign on for New LEE Jong-pil Film


Korean actresses KO Asung, E Som and PARK Hye-su have signed up to appear in Samjin Group’s English TOEIC Class (translated title). The film will be the latest from director LEE Jong-pil.

The narrative concerns employees who take over their company’s English certification course and is set in the 1990s. KO will play LEE Ja-young, a diligent worker in production management who discovers corruption in her company. E Som was cast as JUNG Yoo-na, a fan of detective novels who works in the marketing team. PARK is on board as SHIM Bo-ram, a math whiz from the finance department.

KO Asung is known for her leading roles in the BONG Joon-ho films The Host (2006) and Snowpiercer (2013) and recently scored a hit as the lead in the Japanese Colonial Era protest drama A Resistance. After coming to prominence as a lead in YIM Pil-sung’s Scarlet Innocence (2014), E Som has gone from strength to strength, earning strong notices for Microhabitat (2018), among others. PARK Hye-su appeared in KANG Hyoung-chul’s period tap-dance extravaganza Swing Kids last year.

Director LEE previously made the period pansori musical drama THE SOUND OF A FLOWER (2015) with PARK Shin-hye. Prior to that he made the musical comedy-drama Born to Sing (2013) with KIM In-kwon.

Samjin Group’s English TOEIC Class is scheduled to begin production towards the end of October. The LAMP, which previously made A Taxi Driver (2017), is handling production, while Lotte Entertainment will distribute the completed film.
