Ko - production in Busan
  • LEE Byung-hun and KONG Hyo-jin Begin SINGLE RIDER Shoot in Australia
  • by Pierce Conran /  Mar 29, 2016
  • Wonder Girls’ AN So-hui Joins Cast of Mystery-Thriller
     
     
    AN So-hui has joined superstars LEE Byung-hun and KONG Hyo-jin in Single Rider (working title), the second Korean production for Hollywood major Warner Bros. The film, which marks the directing debut of LEE Joo-young, a graduate of the Korea National University of Arts, began filming in Australia on March 21st.
     
    LEE Byung-hun, who recently starred in the hit political thriller Inside Men and will soon be seen in Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven remake, features as the branch manager of an investment firm who disappears when he becomes embroiled in a scandal. Crush And Blush (2008) star KONG, who will next appear in the thriller Missing Child, plays his wife, an ex-violinist who lives in Australia with their son. AN, a former member of K-pop group Wonder Girls who will appear in the horror-action title Train via Busan this summer, features as a student who goes to Australia on a working holiday.
     
    Single Rider is the second foray for Warner Bros. in Korea, following KIM Jee-woon’s still shooting Colonial Era action film Secret Agent, with SONG Kang-ho and GONG Yoo. Rival Hollywood studio 20th Century Fox has also been active in Korea, as they prepare to release their fourth locally-produced title in May, NA Hong-jin’s eagerly awaited Goksung.
     
    Following the completion of Single Rider, which is being eyed for a late 2016 release, LEE Byung-hun is expected to start filming the upcoming crime-action film Master, alongside GANG Dong-won and KIM Woo-bin.
