Lee Min-ki cast as a California drifter

Lee Min-ki has been selected to headline the movie Road to Utah, which is a project that re-teams him with director Kim Jung-joong, with whom he worked on one of his previous movies, Oishii Man.

Sounds like Lee Min-ki is perfect for the role of K, a wanderer who has become lost in gambling and drinking. In Los Angeles, K has a chance meeting with Jin-yi, a woman with no hope and a rare disease who decides to go on one last trip before she dies. The two end up heading for Utah, and the movie is about what unfolds along the way.

The female lead has not been cast; producers have announced that they would pick their leading lady from an open casting call, looking everywhere from established actresses to rookies. They are looking for a “fresh face who isn’t typical of current actresses,” and casting will continue through early October.

Road to Utah will film in California (do we need to worry about some, uh, enthusiastic fans resorting to some stalker action?), and plans to begin shooting in mid-October.

I read the title of the movie and instantly thought of the Road Movies with Bing Crosby/Bob Hope. I'm almost sad that this one won't follow in that vein, but it sounds like it could be good anyway. :P I do love Minki, but hopefully they pick a good actress for the role.

Yay! Though I do wish he would do another drama soon (so we can have many hours of LMK) or even a drama special.

Please keep us posted with the details. I wouldn't mind stalking LMK especially if they film in NorCal. It would be amazing if I see a Korean celebrity here in Cali since I failed to see anyone whenever I go to Korea.

=> Hyun Jyu Ni? That would be a great 'rebound' after "IAL". :D
