Top Korean actor HA Jung-woo has been cast opposite talented actress KONG Hyo-jin in the romantic-comedy <Love Fiction>, to be directed by JEON Kye-soo.  The film, which cranks in this June, will be JEON’s second feature following his 2006 debut, <Midnight Ballad for Ghost Theater>, a surreal musical that won the Baeksang award for best new director. 
HA has been in top form, taking on diverse but compelling roles in <The Chaser>, <Beastie Boys>, <My Dear Enemy>, <Take Off>, <The Boat>, <The Yellow Sea>, and <The Client>. Actress KONG, known for her supporting roles, made her leading lady breakthrough in the PARK Chan-wook-produced 2008 comedy <Crush and Blush>.  She went on to star in TV drama <Past> and indie features <Sisters on the Road> and <Rolling Home With Bull>.
The new film features HA as a timid novelist and half-hearted vegetarian, bumbling through a slump in his creativity and love life until he meets the buoyant KONG, an employee of a film import company who enjoys amateur photography.  Both actors are managed by talent agency N.O.A Entertainment.  The film will aim for an end-of-the-year release.
