OH Dal-su Co-Stars in New KIM Seong-hun Thriller
Stars HA Jung-woo, BAE Doo-na and OH Dal-su kicked off production of their new thriller Tunnel on November 10th. The film is the third work from director KIM Seong-hun.
Based on a 2013 novel of the same name by SO Jae-won, Tunnel tells the story of an unsuccessful car salesman who becomes trapped on the way to his daughter’s birthday party when a shoddily constructed tunnel collapses. HA plays the man, alone in the tunnel, while BAE is featured as his wife and OH as a rescue worker.
HA most recently starred in the smash summer hit Assassination and was also recognized with the Renaissance Award at the Hawaii International Film Festival just last month. BAE was seen this year in the Netflix TV show Sense8 from the Wachowski Siblings. Meanwhile, OH has appeared in the last three films to cross the ten million admissions mark at the Korean box office, Ode to My Father, Assassination and Veteran.
Director KIM premiered his most recent feature, the thriller A Hard Day, to great acclaim in the Director’s Fortnight section of the Cannes Film Festival last year. Strongly received by critics and audiences, the film took in 3.45 million (USD 23.34 million) viewers in Korea.
