Sophomore Film from GANG Director JO Ba-reun
Slate will follow the story of an actor who dreams of becoming a leading man, until one day, while on set, he finds himself transported into the parallel world of a film in which he plays a swordsman, and comes to learn about himself through the experience.
Playing Gwi-gum, a swordsman whose skills are unrivalled, will be CHO Sun-ki, who played one of the leads of GANG and also appeared in the indie Black Summer (2017). Meanwhile, stage and musical actor JUNG Jin-woo will play the YouTuber known as Ghost, a shy and depressed man with only 15 subscribers who dreamt of gaining people’s love and admiration by becoming a YouTuber.
Director JO Ba-reun made his feature debut last year with the high school fight drama GANG, which debuted in the Korean Cinema Today - Panorama section of the Busan International Film Festival last October. He previously made the short film Vibration in 2016.
Slate is eyeing a mid-April production start.
