Actress Teams Up with Directors HAN Jun-hee and LEE Kwon

Top star KONG Hyo-jin has lined up a pair of new projects to be shot back to back early next year. The actress will appear in LEE Kwon’s Door Lock, which will begin rolling at the beginning of the year while HAN Jun-hee’s Bbaengban is scheduled to start production in the spring.

Director LEE, who helmed My Ordinary Love Story, the horror romantic comedy with SONG Sae-byeok and KANG Ye-won that served as the closing film of the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival in 2014, returns with his third project, which is described as a mystery-thriller about the horrors faced by women.

Coin Locker Girl (2015) filmmaker HAN is preparing Bbaengban, a car chase thriller that will feature KONG as a member of an investigation team that focuses on hit and runs. HAN’s gangland debut premiered in the Critics’ Week sidebar of the Cannes Film Festival and featured KIM Hye-soo and KIM Go-eun. Beyond GONG, A Taxi Driver star RYU Jun-yeol and JO Jung-suk of My Love, My Bride (2014) have been offered lead and supporting roles respectively, but neither have confirmed their participation.

Known to film viewers since 1999’s Memento Mori and even more well known as a TV star and model, KONG’s most famous on-screen credits include Crush and Blush (2008), last year’s Missing and A Single Rider.
