  • MOON So-ri Joins KIM Tae-ri in LITTLE FOREST
  • by Pierce Conran /  Jan 06, 2017
  • RYU Jun-yeol & JIN Ki-joo also Cast in Latest from YIM Soon-rye
     
     
    Director YIM Soon-rye has filled out the cast of her next project Little Forest, which will begin production at some point this month. Joining previously announced lead KIM Tae-ri will be veteran star MOON So-ri, rising actor RYU Jun-yeol and new face JIN Ki-joo.

    Little Forest, which is based on a Japanese comic of the same name by IGARASHI Daisuke, which was already made into two Japanese films in 2014 and 2015, follows the life of the young Hye-won, who returns to her hometown in the countryside. Seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, she becomes self-sufficient in a bid to reconnect with nature.

    The role of Hye-won represents KIM Tae-ri's first major part after her breakout debut in PARK Chan-wook’s The Handmaiden last year. MOON So-ri, who will play her mother, reunites with director YIM following their handball hit Forever The Moment (2008) and Fly Penguin (2009). MOON also featured in The Handmaiden last year.

    After appearing in Socialphobia (2015) and blowing up through TV roles, RYU is poised for an enormous 2017, with major parts in blockbusters The King, Taxi Driver and Silence. Little Forest marks the first film role for co-star JIN Ki-joo.

    Little Forest, YIM’s first film since The Whistleblower (2014), is produced by Watermelon Pictures and distributed by Megabox PlusM. The film is expected to be completed for release in 2018.
