Cosmetics team reunites for Story Sadder Than Sadness
Huh. When it rains, it pours?
Coming on the heels of his drama announcement for Cinderella Man, Kwon Sang-woo is announcing his next film project, starring alongside Lee Bo-young (Queen of the Game). If you thought from reading about Cinderella Man that Kwon playing a dual role with an identity switcheroo in a trendy drama sounded out of character, you’ll be relieved to see him back in his usual tearjerker role for the film A Story Sadder Than Sadness. (….aaaand I’m out. No thankee!)
This’ll be Lee Bo-young’s third leading film role, following previous movies Once Upon a Time and I Am Happy, and her second time working with Kwon; they teamed previously for an ad campaign for the cosmetic brand The Face Shop (at right).
In A Story Sadder than Sadness, they’ll play a radio station PD and songwriter, who for some reason have harbored longtime affections but have been unable to express them to each other. Lee Beom-soo (On Air) is a dentist in love with Lee’s character.
Interestingly enough, the director is actually a bestselling poet (oxymoron?) in his directorial debut, and the film will be produced by the company behind Unstoppable Wedding and Go-sa: Bloody Midterms, distributed by CJ Entertainment.
The movie starts filming next month and will be released on White Day (March 14).
