    YEO Jang-boo (CHA Tae-hyun) possess a special ability to see much more clearly than normal humans. The ability left him at the mercy of his classmates during his youth, but following many years spent as a shut in, he ventures out into the world to work in the realm security.

    Funny man and My Sassy Girl (2001) star CHA Tae-hyun joins forces with director KIM Young-tak once again, following the successful drama BA:BO (2008) and the horror comedy Hello Ghost (2010). Slow Video was directed by KIM Young-tak who became a dark horse of Korean cinema by making Hello Ghost which drew over three million spectators in 2010. Synergies are expected out of the combination among director KIM Young-tak, CHA Tae-hyun and GO Chang-seok who teamed up in Hello Ghost.

    The film is also the second to be fully financed by 20th Century Fox’ Fox International Pictures(FIP), which first waded into the Korean market with the SHIN Ha-kyun action vehicle Running Man last year. “Fox began to have interest in investing in and distributing local films in overseas markets such as India and Mexico,” said Sanford PANITCH, head of Fox International Productions.

    20th Century Fox set its sight on producing a low-budget experimental action film as it was its first main investment project Running Man. But the second project Slow Video is characterized by the fact that it is a commercial film that can satisfy the taste of Korean moviegoers. “While Running Man is an experimental project, we will appel more strongly to Korean audiences through Slow Video,’ said a spokesperson at 20th Century Fox, showing a confidence in the success of the film.  Moreover, “Korean films enjoy a big chunk of the Korean film market,” the spokesperson said, expressing Fox’s intention to make inroads into the Korean film market.
