Park Ki-woong cast as zombie in omnibus film

Well you can never fault Park Ki-woong (Covertly, Grandly) for playing it safe. I love that he always picks something new and different to play, and more importantly does it all with gusto. This time he’s taking on his first zombie role in a 3-D omnibus film directed in three parts by Han Ji-seung (Papa), Ryu Seung-wan (The Berlin File), and Kim Tae-yong (Late Autumn). I’m not the biggest fan of 3-D, but I can see 3-D horror being its own special breed of fun (or heart-stopping terror, take your pick).

Park Ki-woong is starring in the section called I Saw You directed by Han Ji-seung, who also directed the drama Alone in Love and did a 3-D vampire short last year that was horror/romance. It’d be really fun if this new one could be a mashup like zombie comedy or zombie romance. Park plays the lead character, and all we’re told about him is that he suddenly finds himself a zombie one day for unknown reasons. I wish we knew more about the plot, but I suppose Park Ki-woong playing a zombie is enough of a hook to get me to watch. He certainly has a flair for the weird characters, whether savant, idol, spy, or freedom-crusher, hero or villain, or all the gray in between.

Between Park Ki-woong’s turn as a zombie and Gong Yoo considering grim-reaper-dom, it seems like 2014 will be a colorful year of sci-fi fantasy characters and some interesting new forays into genre films. Consider me one happy camper.

I Saw You starts shooting this December for a 2014 release.

Niiiiice. This is the first time I'm hearing someone's actually going to play THE zombie. For once, it's great to see a story in a zombie's point of view. Definitely excited for this!

Yes - I thought of Warm Bodies too. I saw it over the summer and actually liked it a lot more than I thought I would. Nothing like a snarky main lead to make me laugh. :-)

I really like Park Ki-woong, and I think seeing him in this will be entertaining!

I thought of Warm Bodies as well even though I haven't seen it yet. But, this sounds good and Park Ki Woong is always a pleasure so I will keep an eye out.

Oh, sounds interesting! But I hope they don't uglify him too much; I'm still reeling from World War Z, where the zombies are seriously creepy and scary as hell.

sounds like a certain webtoon again, canĀ“t remember the name of it, but the guy finds himself a zombie and he likes a girl who is a supermodel. The guy was a musician there.

I am kind of sick of zombies, they are over-used and there are literally MILLIONS of mythical creatures in the legends much more interesting.

But Park Ki Woongie PLUS zombie? awww man. how can I resist?

not sure if it works though. it will be the cutest zombie ever.

the film what waqs it, where there was this attractive zombie and some witches.... more like that....

aww man, he chooses a zombie. that is so boyish.

I'm just so glad he's taking on different roles to showcase / hone his acting skills. I feel that the next generation of actors seem to be more adventurous, which is great!

Always look forward to hearing news about my Oppa....yes, he is mine! :) Does anyone know if that one-episode drama he filmed (where he plays a nobleman who becomes a slave) is available somewhere with English subs? Thanks :).
