Choo Changmin’s new film Land of Happiness (translated title) is beginning to shape up as Yu Jaemyeong has become the latest name to join a cast that also includes actors Lee Sunkyun and Jo Jungsuk.


The film concerns an upright soldier who becomes involved in a case that impacts modern Korean history, as well as the lawyer defending him. Lee Sunkyun will appear as the soldier while Jo was cast as the lawyer. Yu will play another soldier who is also connected to the case.


Director Choo is known for his period drama smash Masquerade (2012) with Lee Byunghun, which welcomed over 12 million viewers in 2012. He last helmed the revenge thriller Seven Years of Night (2018).


Veteran actor Lee Sunkyun is known for A Hard Day (2014) and the Oscar-winning Parasite (2019) as well as the hit series My Mister. Jo Jungsuk appeared in the hit EXIT (2019) and is currently on the small screen in Hospital Playlist 2. Yu Jaemyeong recently appeared alongside Yoo Ahin in the award-winning black comedy Voice of Silence last year.


Land of Happiness is being co-produced by Papas Film and Oscar 10 Studio, while Next Entertainment World is on board as investor and distributor. The film is scheduled to enter production in mid-September.
