I’d already posted about the upcoming comic sageuk film Disturbance in Her Barroom (check that post out for video, stills, and the first production press conference), but there were so many lovely pictures of star Lee Jung-jae at the press gathering on the 18th that I had to share.
(Oh right, and his castmates were also there: Kim Ok-bin (Over the Rainbow), Kim Seok-hoon (Blissful Woman), and Lee Won-jong (Dasepo Naughty Girls).)
The movie title literally translates to “Gibang Riot in 1724” [1724 기방난동사건'], a gibang being a gisaeng house; Kim Ok-bin plays a top gisaeng (recently graduated from gisaeng school at the top of her class) with whom Lee’s character falls in love at first sight. Lee gets into trouble constantly, always getting caught up in fights and leader of his own group of thugs.
Lee Jung-jae explained why he was drawn to this project, saying that he found it less interesting to keep playing his previous characters, and wanted to give a shot at playing a wild ‘n loose type.
The film opens December 4.
