  • RYU Jang-ha’s comeback stars YOO Ji-tae and LEE Youn-hee


    Director/writer RYU Jang-ha makes his comeback after his 2004 Springtime (Kkotbineun Bomi Omyeon) featuring CHOI Min-sik, with the romantic drama Soonjeongmanwha (English translation: pure comic strip) starring YOO Ji-tae and LEE Youn-hee.


    The film’s about a thirty-year-old office employee and a female student who run into each other every morning at an elevator. Both are secretly in love with each other.


    Filming commenced on the first day of April. The film is scheduled for a release in the fall. The romantic drama is produced by Let’s Film.


    YOO Ji-tae played CHOI Min-sik’s character’s nemesis in PARK Chan-wook’s Old Boy. He also starred in the period piece HWANG Jin Yi and HONG Sangsoo’s Woman is the Future of Man (Yojaneun Namjaui Miraeda). In addition, YOO directs short films.


    LEE Youn-hee is seen in LEE Myung-se’s M opposite of GANG Dong-won and the romantic teen film A Millionaire’s First Love (Baekmanjangjaui Cheotsarang). She’s one of the promising young Korean actresses.
