Korean actors Jung Woo-sung and Choi Jin-hyuk will take on a new short film, but with Jung as its director and Choi the main character.
An official with the two’s agency Red Brick House told TenAsia on Wednesday that Jung, who will produce and dramatize the film, will depict the suffocating reality that people have to live through and the fantasy that they dream about through short film “The Start of a Dream” (translated title).
The short film is the second campaign of project “Brand Film,” hosted by Samsung’s Galaxy S4, and the script of the film was selected through a competition that consumers took part in.
Jung made his directorial debut through K-pop boy band god’s music video of “After You Left Me” (translated title) in 1999. He also released short film “Love” (translated title), which is also a film project hosted by Samsung’s Galaxy S4, on YouTube which collected close to 1.8 million views after its release in May.
Meanwhile, Jun and Choi have both been cast in new action film “God’s Accuracy” (translated title), which is set to crank in next month and open in Korean theaters next year.
Jung’s recent film “Cold Eyes,” featuring Han Hyo-joo, Seol Kyung-gu and 2PM’s Junho, sold over five million tickets since its release on July 3, making it the fourth most-watched Korean film this year. The film has also been invited to this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.
Choi made his debut in 2006 and has appeared in a number of dramas. His most recent role was in hit MBC series “Kang Chi, the Beginning” which ended its run in late June.
