Cha Seung-won reteams with Jang Jin for action-comedy

Why mess with a winning combo? Actor Cha Seung-won has had two projects with director Jang Jin, and now he’s signed on for their third collaboration, a movie titled High Heels.

Their first film together was the 2005 comedy-mystery-drama The Big Scene, which they followed up with 2007’s Son. In this new film, Cha Seung-won plays a cop in the violent crimes division, which seems like a role he could play in his sleep. Guns, chases, glowers? Check, check, check.

But since this is Jang Jin, don’t expect this to be a straight police thriller; the writer-director tends to infuse his projects with a sly sense of humor and a lot of heart. (Other movies he’s directed: Quiz King, Good Morning President, Righteous Ties. He also displayed a biting wit as the director of Saturday Night Live Korea for its first three seasons, where he served as Weekend Update anchor.)

High Heels is described as an action-comedy, though no details yet on how the situation is funny. I’m still waiting for the title to make sense, because I’m not quite sure whether I ought to be imagining Cha Seung-won running around in four-inch pumps, To Wong Foo-style. Although that would be pretty hilarious.

High Heels begins filming in April, and plans for release later in the year.

LOL, now for the matter at hand, I'm also puzzle over the title of the show. High Heels? Seriously? Lets all hope that he will not be walking around in a four-inch pumps (He's tall enough without them, not that it would stop the script if that's what they intended.)

Ah, Jang Jin, hope the movie does well because, unfortunately, the projects he directs don't do well. I love his style of wit and humor so I'm looking forward to the movie and hoping it'll go well for him.

I'm sooo looking forward to watching it! But I really hope CSW's agency/manager would give heed to the fans' request of teaming him up with the lovely Kim Sun Ah! I so luuurrrrve their loveteam in City Hall. I bet whatever they do together will surely be a hit!

His agency mentioned that he has plans to star in a TV series in the later part of the year (July onwards, I assume?) so here's hoping he pairs up with a) KSA or b) GHJ.

What more can I say, that others before, or after me, already have/will?

He is one of the best ones out there as far as talent and looks!! Been trying to wait patiently for him to begin something that we all can sit up close to our screens and drool over!!! I have yet, to find him in anything I did not enjoy him in, wither it is a movie, kdrama or commercial!!!!

Didn’t they invent the pause button on our screens so that we could just freeze frame him? Sit there and hold our conversations between just him and me, ok I guess us?? Drool, wipe our chins, and wonder where we could find our personal (wink!! heavy sigh!!! warm flash!!!! ) version????

I don't know, I think because I'm so used to the stach, I would totally be down for him wearing heels with his stach. It's creepy otherwise in my mind. The picture above confuses me, it's just so much a part of him that when it's gone, I don't know how to feel.

I love The Stache too, probably in the minority but his Athena-look was HOLYSHITHOT. Not quite sure what to feel about (the possibility of) him wearing high heels though...

I have seen two dramas and majority of his pictures, and I have realized that he has been losing weight each year and his eyebrows are thinner ,he is 43 and in my humble opinion need comeback to his real appearance,because He is begin to look like a pop idol ...come back to his size please.
