3rd Feature from …ING Director E.oni
Actresses UHM Ji-won and KONG Hyo-jin are teaming up for the first time on Missing Child, the first film in nine years from …ing (2003) director E.oni (aka LEE Eon-hee). Shooting on the kidnap drama began last month and is expected to last three months. UHM will play a woman who is divorcing her husband and working hard to raise her daughter. She entrusts her child to a babysitter (played by KONG) who one day disappears with her.
Last seen in The Silenced, UHM has drawn acclaim for her roles in HONG Sangsoo films such as Like You Know It All (2009) and her award-winning turn in LEE Joon-ik’s drama Hope (2013). Meanwhile, KONG has criss-crossed between indie and commercial fare, appearing in LEE Myung-Se’s M (2007), LEE Kyoung-mi’s Crush And Blush (2008) and more recently SONG Hae-sung’s Boomerang Family (2013). Both have recently been active on the small screen and joining them will be character actor KIM Hee-won and PARK Hae-joon.
