    Golden Slumber, the Korean adaptation of the Japanese novel by ISAKA Kotaro of the same name, has added YOON Kye-sang to its cast. The actor joins previously announced leads GANG Dong-won and HAN Hyo-joo in the NOH Dong-seok-directed thriller. Also joining the cast will be KIM Dae-myeong, KIM Sung-kyun and KIM Eui-sung.

    The story concerns a courier, played by GANG, who goes on the run after being falsely accused of the assassination of the newly elected prime minister. HAN will play a radio reporter who went to college with the courier.

    YOON will take on the role of a friend of the fugitive who is tasked with chasing him down. Last year, YOON featured in E J-yong’s drama The Bacchus Lady alongside YOUN Yuh-jung. Previously, his notable credits include Poongsan (2011) and The Unfair (2015).

    KIM Dae-myeong will be seen as a lawyer who is also the would-be assassin’s close friend, KIM Sung-kyun is on board as a computer repairman, and KIM Eui-sung has signed on to play a mysterious man who helps the lead character after he goes on the run.

    CJ Entertainment is on board as the investor and distributor while ZIP CINEMA, recently behind the star-studded Master, also starring GANG, will produce this new film by Boys Of Tomorrow (2007) director NOH. Golden Slumber will begin filming early this year.
