Character actress Cho Eun-ji, who as played memorable roles from Im Sang-soo’s Tears (2000) all the way to Jung Byung-gil’s The Villainess (2017) has also been forging a path for herself as a director. CHO earned a special jury prize at the Mise-en-scène Short Film Festival for her short film 2 Nights and 3 Days and has now graduated to the commercial realm. Her debut feature, the romantic comedy Not on the My Lips, has assembled an all-star cast including actor Ryu Seung-ryong and Oh Na-ra of hit TV show SKY Castle.


Ryu is no stranger to comedy, having led hits such as Miracle in Cell No. 7 (2013) as well as Extreme Job (2019), the second highest grossing Korean film of all time. Though more recognizable from her TV work, Oh has appeared in several films, including The Spies (2012) and Because I Love You (2017). The film also features Kim Hie-won (The Merciless, 2017) and Lee Yoo-young (Diva, 2020).


The romcom follows a best-selling writer called Hyun who has found himself in a slump for the past seven years. Just when he’s reached his lowest point, he meets Yoo-jin, an aspiring writer. Cho’s film will chronicle an unusual romance about two characters whose professional and private lives keep intersecting at awkward turns.

Lim previously worked as an assistant director on a variety of projects, including the heartwarming drama Father’s Love (2011), the romantic comedy Campus S Couple (2014) and the thriller Search Out (2020).


Lim’s latest film concerns a gangster who has led a dark and violent life and whose actions eventually landed him in the slammer, where he was forced to carry out a 12 year sentence for his crimes. At the issue of his time in jail, the gang leader comes out with a new perspective on life and makes good on a plan to set up a restaurant. His eatery serves kalguksu, literally 'knife-cut soup noodle’, a popular and hearty Korean comfort food that warms one’s bones in the cold winter months. Things start out relatively smoothly at first, but his establishment, which he runs with the help of the minions in his gang, soon starts to experience some significant ups and downs.


Leading the cast as gang leader is Yoon Si-yoon, not seen on the big screen since Mr. Perfect in 2014, but very active in drama series, while is love interest is played by Seor Ina, who recently appeared in the hit TV shows Record of Youth and Mr. Queenby pierce conran
