Into the White Night marks Go Soo’s screen comeback

I first heard of Into the White Night (literally Baekyahaeng: Walk Into the White Darkness or 백야행 — 하얀 어둠속을 걷다) last year, when lead actress Sohn Ye-jin was cast, and filed it away as something to look forward to.

I like Sohn, but it was the plot that caught my attention: It’s based on a story that’s been remade a few times in Japan in film and television form (titled Byakuyako; the original novel was written by Higashino Keigo). The shared theme is that two young people kill a person in self-defense, cover it up, and decide to separate until the statute of limitations expires on their crime.

The first stills are out featuring Go Soo in the lead role, which is a welcome return for the actor; this is his film comeback following release from army duty a year ago.

In the story, Go Soo’s character had been orphaned as a youth when his father was killed, and lives an isolated life in jobs like café bartender and manager of a back-alley host bar. He also hides a “complicated” and “brutal” past yet harbors a “pure soul.” The character shows off a different, tougher side from the actor’s previous romantic and sincere drama roles.

Aside from Go Soo and Sohn Ye-jin, the film also stars Han Seok-kyu of Tell Me Something and A Bloody Aria, which makes this an A-list project to anticipate.

Go Soo’s acting comeback was officially in theater, in the stage play Return of President Eom, but this will be his screen return. His last screen role was in 2005’s drama Marrying a Millionaire, and, as I really liked him in the thriller series Green Rose, I’m looking forward to seeing more of him. (And more Go Soo is always a good thing, if ya know what I mean.)

Go Soo said of this film, “It feels like I was waiting my life for this role. I’ll do my best with it.” Currently, the film is about 90 percent completed with filming, and plans to release in the latter half of the year.

I'm watching the jdorama Byakuyakou right now, and it's really quite something. Extremely dark and thrilling, at times a bit disturbing, but I'm loving it so far.

I'm looking forward to this movie as well. This plot, with my favorite Korean actress playing the lead role...there's no way I can miss this.

Oh, I didn't know Go Soo is playing Yamada Takayuki's role. Should be interesting..

I'm really really looking forward to this as well. The J versions annoyed me with the very bland acting, totally ruining a great story and left me wondering if in the hands of better actors, it can be sooo good.

And along come SYJ and GS.

Go Soooooooooooo <3

Son Yeh Jin + Go Soo will be something exciting to look forward to, and the plot is great :)

And I agree with mookie about the acting... and so I'm happy that Son Yeh Jin and Go Soo will be acting the roles since they're great actors, so I have high hopes.

about Yamada Takayuki in Byakuyakou, i think he is a great actor and did a great job in this drama, but unfortunately for me Ayase haruka was a fiasco to say at least and even the child actress, who did the same character, did a better job than her >.<

So is nice to see strong actors doing this film...

sohn ye jin has been my fave korean actress since i saw her in dae mang as the daughter of the good merchant. now, go soo, my second fave korean actor (i am sorry go soo fans, jo hyun jae will always be no.1 in my heart). i have been his fan since i saw him in green rose. both are very good and strong actors. i am sure they will give justice to their roles. i will look forward to watching this movie when it becomes available online!!!!

I am looking forward to the movie and certainly for KOSOO 's return on screen.
Admire his acting talent when seeing his photos with eyes ' expression of painful
and sorrow which come out from his real heart. SonYe Jin is also the best actress whom I adore too.

btw, i am glad to see go soo wearing his hair down in his photos here, still long but no fancy waves. his hairdo in the months following his release from the military didn't look good on him. especially his hairdo in his fan meeting in japan (i think!), he looked a lot like michael jackson, and in my opinion that is not a compliment.

This sounds exciting! I am definitely looking forward to this. The storyline is dark, intense and compelling and I love it. I also agree that in the j-drama Ayase Haruka's acting was not good but Yamada Takayuki & Kashiwabara Takashi :D

is this a movie or a drama? big screen or small screen? im kinda confused

anyway, i saw byakuyakou 2 years ago and it left quite an impression on me. it's dark and intense.....

and though i think ayase haruka is a miscast, i still like the storyline though. i always love dark dramas!^^

Dramatic acting is not ayase Haruka's strenght, I would say she is better suited in comedy.
I have not seen the japanese version even if I adore Yamada Takayuki too bad he was blacklisted in all japanese tv-companies so he can's work on tv anymore.
I am looking forward to this version though, I'm a big Sohn Ye-jin fan.

I love Ko Soo soooo much! You won't be disappointed for his every acts. He's so talent starting from 'Say it with your eyes' to 'Marry a Millionaire' . I have watched 'Green Rose' over 7 times and still not enough.
I admire Son Ye Jin since 'The Classic'. She's fresh, soft and beautiful.
Woo, my most favourite actor & actress joins together for this film. How can I miss it? Never!

i think the movie was a success, i totally loved the acting, the story, the soundtrack...
i already knew son ye jin's magnificent beauty and performance, that's what encouraged me to watch it first, then i discovered go soo's amazing image in this movie, he's completly absorbed by the character, that's why i really admire him now.
the cast in general was great (the detective, the young actors...)

but i didn't like the numerous bed scenes ( there was too much of them, i would prefer one with son ye jin and go soo ^^)

now i'm officially go soo and son ye jin's fan
