  • HA Jung-woo Confirms for PARK Chan-wook’s AGASSHI
  • by KIM Su-yeon /  Nov 14, 2014
  • Return of Master PARK Chan-wook
    Ha Jung-woo confirmed to perform in PARK Chan-wook’s latest film, Agasshi. Agasshi is PARK’s comeback in 5 years after Thirst, and is based on an original novel by Sarah Waters’ called ‘Fingersmith’.
    ‘Fingersmith’ is set in the Victorian period in UK where two women who are pickpocketing end up becoming involved with two men. PARK took this story and changed the setting to Japanese colonial period and made the characters Japanese aristocrats and Korean housekeepers. HA will play the Japanese aristocrat and the two women who are likely to show a lot of skin are still in the casting stage.
    In the meantime, HA is in the post-production stage for his second directorial feature, Chronicle of a Blood Merchant and is also shooting CHOI Dong-hoon’s Assassination (d/t).
    Agasshi is scheduled to go into shoot early next year.
