Park Ki-woong joins Han Chae-ah in Made In China

Casting finalizations are in for the Kim Ki-duk Film production Made In China, with Han Chae-ah now confirmed (having been previously considering) and Park Ki-woong joining her as leading man. Aw, Shunji and Rie, together again. (Hopefully not at each other’s throats in murderous-conflict-slash-tragic-commiseration this time around.)

Made In China seems like a quiet sort of film, taking Chinese eels as its subject matter and using them as a springboard for “introspection about humanity.” Park Ki-woong plays a man of strong convictions and masculinity named Chen, who’ll portray a “sensitive internal side” with depth. Han Chae-ah’s character works for the Korea Food and Drug Administration as a cold, level-headed inspector.

I wish we had more information to go on, other than that this is a thoughtful film about introspection, because these are two actors I really enjoy, both separately and together, and Kim Ki-duk Film is a production house that has put out some interesting projects (some of which I might not like but find, at least, interesting): Poongsan, Rough Cut, Rough Play, Red Family, and Pieta. I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for more news as it comes out.

Made In China will be directed by Kim Dong-hoo in his feature debut, and is currently in the process of casting the rest of its characters, after which it will begin filming.

PKW and HCA on a film about eels! Although the story is still blur, these two are talented actors that should get more works!

Han Chae-ah can order me around coldy and officiously any time of any day in any country. Except Saudi Arabia, where she'd have to cover her legs.

I'm glad they've softened up a bit. They had a fuss in the American press a few years back because American female military personnel were ordered and/or pressured to avoid being seen in public in their uniforms and without hats or scarves, to avoid offending the Saudi men.

That's a little racist don't you think? Not even a little? Why would you bring up something like that? Not in a bad way, but Muslims go on this site too (I know a quite a few) and the way people have a go at Saudis is really upsetting and it upsets other Muslims as well. I honestly don't mean this in a bad way but I know how affected my Muslim friends (and most of them aren't even Arabs) get, and it really isn't nice to say this sort of random thing on a k-drama website of all things. Please don't take this as trolling, I just wanted to say that you should refrain from saying things like this.

I agree that this might be something of an over-reach for an international forum like this, but it has nothing to to do with "race." This is standard advice, and described as basic courtesy, in the official and commercial guidebooks, for female tourists and businesspeople traveling in the Middle East. Not a big deal, and all the women in the last group I traveled with in that region abided by it.

OMG!! A big yes to Shunji and Rie reunion! Add Kang-to to the mix and I'll be one happy camper.

Pre-production descriptions always sound amusing/silly so I'll wait until it's not so vague. I liked Rough Cut but just reading about Pieta made me very uncomfortable so not sure how I feel about this Kim Ki-duk guy. Still, I've watched some boring stuff in the name of my favorite actors so I might try this out.

Oh man, I was totally shipping the sexual tension between Shunji and Rie. They were hot. If Bridal Mask were some cable or American drama, they would've been frakking each other just for the fun of it.

Kim Ki Duk rarely does projects not rated R (except only Arirang which only has him). Interesting project for these 2.

YES for this project. I'll be watching no matter what happen as I love Park Ki Woong so much. Thank God he's still working (I dont know when he will be enlisting, maybe not later this year or next year? LOL).
I love Han Chae Ah too (though I'm still waiting for her reunion with JooWon), I'm happy with this small GAKSITAL reunion...
Thanks for the happy news, Javabeans! ^^

Knowing Kim Ki-duk, I'm half expecting a sex scene between Park Ki Woong and Han Chae Ah to involve eels in some way.

I'm hoping this will be shown at a film festival near me and I would definitely watch it. I have to admit that my favorite characters on Gaksital were them two (sorry Joo Won!).
