Go Soo and Jeon Do-yeon take The Road Home
by | December 15, 2012 | 12 Comments

I wonder how many onscreen husband and wife pairings this movie’s going to make before they actually shoot the thing. Upcoming thriller The Road Home already lost one couple, so hopefully this one will stick. Jeon Do-yeon (Countdown, Housemaid) and Go Soo (Bandage, Psychic) are reportedly next in line at the altar to become Mr. and Mrs. I-Swear-Those-Drugs-Aren’t-Mine.

It turns out Jeon Do-yeon was initially attached to the thing over a year ago, though who knows what happened or why the project got stuck in development hell. In any case maybe the timing is better this time around? Having Go Soo as a love interest can’t hurt things, that’s for sure. I’m not sure I see the pairing quite yet, but we’ll have to wait till they’re onscreen to see if sparks fly.

The new thriller from director Bang Eun-jin of Suspect X is about an everyday housewife who gets framed for smuggling drugs on her way home from Paris, and lands in jail. Her husband sets out to clear her name, and goes up against the people who framed her to take the fall. The moral of the story? Heed those warnings they always play at airports: Do not leave your bags unattended.

If all goes smoothly, The Road Home starts filming in early January for a release in 2013.

    I want to see more Korean movies on international market.
    Specially her. Kdrama land produces fantastic movies, however it is hard to see one.

    This feels and sounds like that comedy film with Tina Fey on it.

    Oh well, so what, I loved Jeon Do-yeon in Housemaid.

    Looking forward to it!

      Yup, and all the media hoopla on current events seems to keep the reels rolling.

    LOve this couple! (though liked the previous cast as much(Ha Jung-woo!!))

    The housewife gets caught in France or in S Korea?

    just wondering, but what everyday housewife can go to Paris? Especially alone– I mean, wouldn’t she bring her kids or, if they don’t have any, at least her husband? Who goes to Paris alone?

      Maybe she has family over there? And her husband works a lot. They’re well off and probably don’t have kids? lol, there is a lot.
