Ko - production in Busan
  • Lee Joon-ik`s Radio Star wraps up shooting
  • by Darcy Paquet (KOFIC) /  Jul 14, 2006
  • Director LEE Joon-ik, who made Korean cinematic history with his record-breaking hit film King and the Clown, has recently wrapped up shooting for his next film. Radio Star features the acting talents of AHN Sung-ki and PARK Joong-hoon, who previously teamed in the hit films Nowhere to Hide from 1999 and Two Cops in 1994. The comedy about a hard-to-handle rock star and his manager is drawing notice due to the track record of its director, who not only famously directed King and the Clown but also notched a solid hit in 2003 with Once Upon a Time in a Battlefield and participated in such box office hits as Hi, Dharma! (2001) as a producer at his production company Cineworld. Screenwriter CHOI Seok-hwan, who collaborated with LEE on the screenplay of King and Battlefield, is also returning to contribute to this project. Radio Star has been set up as a co-production between Cineworld and AchimPictures, to be distributed locally by Cinema Service and sold internationally by co-investor CJ Entertainment. The film wrapped up three months of shooting on July 8, and is scheduled for a release in the fall season. Darcy Paquet (KOFIC)
