  • YEON Sang-ho Begins Filming TRAIN TO BUSAN Follow-up PSYCHOKINESIS
  • by Pierce Conran /  Apr 18, 2017
  • NEW Black Comedy Starts RYU Seung-ryong and SHIM Eun-kyoung

    TRAIN TO BUSAN director YEON Sang-ho is back behind cameras as his second live action film (and fifth overall) Psychokinesis began shooting on April 17th. The black comedy features RYU Seung-ryong and SHIM Eun-kyoung (who both voiced characters in TRAIN TO BUSAN’s animated prequel Seoul Station) in the lead and JUNG Yu-Mi, PARK Jung-min and KIM Min-jae as supporting actors.

    RYU will feature as a man who develops special powers that he can use to help his daughter (played by SHIM) and others, but soon runs into trouble. Star of Miracle in Cell No. 7 (2013) and Roaring Currents (2014), RYOO will next be seen in CHOO Chang-min’s revenge thriller Night of 7 Years, while Miss Granny (2014) star SHIM was seen recently in Fabricated City and is up again at the end of the month opposite CHOI Min-shik in The Mayor.

    JUNG Yu-Mi is teaming up with YEON again after playing one of the main characters in TRAIN TO BUSAN, while PARK is a rising star who received many accolades for DONGJU; The Portrait of A Poet and KIM is a noted character actor with recent credits that include Veteran (2015), The Truth Beneath (2016) and The King.

    Psychokinesis also sees YEON team up once more with investor and distributor Next Entertainment World and international sales arm Contents Panda. The company is looking to make Psychokinesis a tentpole in their 2018 lineup. TRAIN TO BUSAN became the company’s biggest success, grossing in excess of USD 135 million around the globe, notching up local records in several territories along the way.
