LEE Kwang-soo Considers Disaster Drama WATERHOLE

CHA Seung-won and KIM Sung-kyun Cast in New KIM Ji-hoon Project


LEE Kwang-soo, who is currently on screens in the family comedy Inseparable Bros, is considering appearing alongside CHA Seung-won in the upcoming disaster drama Waterhole (literal title), from director KIM Ji-hoon. The film will follow the story of people trapped inside a sinkhole that appears in a newly-constructed villa.

After several supporting parts in films such as All About My Wife (2012) and later as a lead in the well-received but little seen Confession (2014) and the Toronto-screened Collective Invention (2015), LEE Kwang-soo found fame on the small screen before returning to films last year in The Accidental Detective 2: In Action.

CHA Seung-won was last seen as one of the villains in LEE Hae-young’s Believer (2018) and will soon return to screens in the recently wrapped comedy-drama Cheer Up Mr. Lee (translated title). Character actor KIM Sung-kyun of The Prison (2017) and The Witness (2018) is also slated to appear in the project.

Director KIM is no stranger to large-scale projects, having previously helmed the Gwangju Democratization Movement drama May 18 (2007), the oil rig creature feature Sector 7 (2011) and the inferno drama The Tower (2012). KIM also helmed the as-yet unreleased high school thriller I Want to See Your Parents’ Faces with SUL Kyung-gu, MOON So-ri and CHUN Woo-hee.

Production on Waterhole will kick off in the second half of the year, once casting has been completed.
