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.
