    BYUN Daniel H.’s High Society and LEE Jae-kyoo’s Intimate Strangers are in queue for release in the latter half of the year. High Society stars PARK Hae-il and Su Ae as a couple, a gallery curator and professor setting foot into politics respectively, who desire to increase their social standing while psychological thriller Intimate Strangers, which stars CHO Jin-woong and YOO Hae-jin, is a remake of Italian film Perfetti Sconosciuti.
