Ko - production in Busan
  • LEE Byung-hun and KONG Hyo-jin Board SINGLE RIDER
  • by Pierce Conran /  Feb 01, 2016
  • 2nd Korean Production from Warner Bros.
     
     
    For its second venture in the Korean film industry, following KIM Jee-woon’s currently filming period action Secret Agent with SONG Kang-ho, Warner Bros. will pair stars LEE Byung-hun and KONG Hyo-jin in upcoming thriller Single Rider. The film will mark the directing debut of LEE Joo-young, a graduate of the Korea National University of Arts.
     
    LEE will play a branch manager of an investment firm who sends his wife (played by KONG) and son to Australia for school. When he loses everything, he travels there to meet them.
     
    Despite a rocky start, LEE ended 2015 on a high note with the massive success of Inside Men, which attracted over nine million viewers to theaters. LEE has also signed on to shoot the thriller The Master, with GANG Dong-won and KIM Woo-bin, but with Single Rider beginning in March, it is unclear when that will happen.
     
    Star of numerous films and TV shows, including 2008’s Crush And Blush, GONG hasn’t appeared on the big screen since Boomerang Family in early 2013. Before Single Rider, she will first be seen in the recently wrapped thriller Missing Child, alongside UHM Ji-won.
     
    Warner Bros. will finance and distribute the film in Korea. Following 20th Century Fox (Intimate Enemies, 2015; Goksung), they are the second studio to venture into local productions for the Korean market.
