Director CHUNG Ji-young Returns with True-Life Story of Wrongful Arrest
Boys is based on the aftermath of a supermarket robbery committed by three people in North Jeolla Province in 1999. Three youths were charged with the crime and eventually exonerated during a second trial in 2016. SUL will play an investigator who has doubts about the case after the initial investigation and decides to delve back into it.
Known for A Peppermint Candy (2000) and the Public Enemy series (2002-2008), SUL Kyung-gu has been prolific of late, appearing in three films in 2019 (Birthday, Idol and Man of Men), with a further three awaiting release: I Want to See Your Parents’ Faces (translated title), Kingmaker (literal title) and Yacha (Korean title).
Filming for Boys, which will be distributed by CJ Entertainment, is expected to kick off at the end of June.
