Three actors I love starring together in a thriller? Count me intrigued. Kim Min-hee (Moby Dick, Actresses), Jo Sung-ha (Romance Town, Sungkyunkwan Scandal), and Lee Seon-kyun (Arrest King, Petty Romance) have been cast as the leads in the upcoming film Train (working title, also called Help).
It’s an adaptation of the novel Train by the famed Queen of Detective Novels Miyabe Miyuki, in which an engaged woman (played by Kim Min-hee) suddenly disappears just before her wedding. Her fiancé (Lee Seon-kyun) sets out to find her, only to uncover a huge mystery surrounding her past. Apparently it’s something massive, because his experience is described as traumatic and horrifying.
Jo Sung-ha, who recently participated in the hilarious Supporting Actors Special on 1 Night 2 Days, will be taking on the role of the detective and cousin who helps Lee track down his wife-to-be. I’m thinking if the story follows in the vein of traditional detective fiction, Jo Sung-ha will be the true lead, which would actually be kind of cool. Especially if he’s the calm and collected gumshoe to Lee Seon-kyun’s massively panicked fiancé.
I’m picturing Lee Seon-kyun and Jo Sung-ha having a battle of The Voices in my head, and it’s kind of awesome. I pretty much think I’d pay the price of a movie ticket just to see that.
Train begins shooting in July and plans on an early 2012 release. Directing will be PD Byun Young-ju, who directed 2004′s Flying Boys, starring Yoon Kye-sang as a… BALLET DANCER.
I KNOW. **runs off to find this movie RIGHT NOW**
