  • YANG Ik-june casts JI Jin-hee

  • YANG Ik-june casts JI Jin-hee


    YANG IK-june shot up the ranks of the international cinema world with his debut feature film Breathless. His second film is titled Runaway from Home, and JI Jin-hee has been cast in the lead role. YANG will also act besides directing.


    JI will team up with LEE Moon-sik. LEE will play a husband whose wife has run away. JI’s character is the wife’s brother. Together they set out to find her. The drama with touches of comedy should be gold in the hands of director YANG who handled Breathless perfectly.


    Breathless – written, directed, produced, and acted by YANG – won a string of awards in Asia and Europe including the tiger award at 2009 International Film Festival Rotterdam. JI turned into a pan-Asian star through the hit television series Jewel in the Palace. He starred in IM Sang-soo’s The Old Garden.
