Latest Project from LOVE FICTION Director JEON Kye-soo
CHUN Woo-hee is set to headline the upcoming project Vertigo (literal title). The drama is the latest work from Love Fiction (2012) director JEON Kye-soo and will also feature YOO Teo (Seoul Searching, 2015) and JEONG Jae-gwang (The Witness).
CHUN will appear as Seo-young, a graphic designer in her early 30s, who is described as a new kind of character. She works in an office in Seoul that is high up in a skyscraper, despite the fact that she suffers from vertigo. The story follows her as she enters into a romance with a man who works on the face of the building as he fixes it, moving up and down by rope. The pair meets through a window.
After rising to stardom in the critically acclaimed indie film HAN Gong-ju (2013), CHUN appeared in several major mainstream films, including LEE Han’s Thread of Lies (2014), NA Hong-jin’s THE WAILING (2016) and LEE Yoon-ki’s Oneday (2017).
Director JEON’s previous work was the romantic comedy Love Fiction with KONG Hyo-jin and HA Jung-woo, which attracted over 1.7 million viewers. He is also responsible for the musical-horror-comedy hybrid Midnight Ballad For Ghost Theater (2006) and the romantic drama Lost & Found (2010).
Vertigo is set to begin filming in November, once casting has been completed.
