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).

I dunno when I heard the name, it reminded me of his gloomy drama (sad love story) hehehe... anyhow, I can predict that someone in this movie is going to die, or maybe both of them lol.

couldn't they have chosen a better name?
i'm not for tearjerkers, but i do watch them when i can't tell it's one from the name...
the name is an absolute turnoff. it's like this big caution sign that says "Warning: Get your tissues ready!" O_o

but i still hope they have success!!!
KSW definitely needs it after all his recent failures...

WHY oh WHY must KSW always choose these tear-jerker projects??!!!!
I like KSW, I really do...going back to My Tutor Friend... and I even watched Bad Love all the way to the end! But I don't have it in me to watch another him in another melodrama. I already want Lee Beom Soo to get the girl!

The vibe I'm getting is exactly the same as when I heard he would be doing "Bad Love". The title itself is a flop; a connotation of hopelessness and unhapinness obvious. I thought one of the reasons why Bad Love was bad (aside from the lead actress' "dead" acting) was because one knows from the very beginning it would be "Bad" Love, as in hopeless story. This one has the same feeling. Hope this is not a mistake for him.
