Kang Dong-won, Kim Min-hee rumored for Ant Hell

We’ve got some conflicting news on the upcoming movie Ant Hell, which will be based upon the eponymous and iconic 1999 comic book written by Lee Hyun-se, and directed by the accomplished Lee Myung-se (My Love, My Bride). Some news articles quote a source from the production company, Taewon Entertainment, as confirming that Kang Dong-won (Secret Reunion, Jeon Woo-chi) is being courted for the film, while another production source insists that the screenplay adaptation isn’t finished and needs to be worked on before casting can start.

I’m not sure what’s what, but just the fact that Kang Dong-won’s name is being whispered about is exciting news, as it’s been four long years since we’ve seen him in a full-length feature on the silver screen. For our patience, we will finally be rewarded with next month’s Kundo: Age of the Rampant, and he’s got another movie in the pipes after that, but more, please! More! If he accepts the Ant Hell offer, this will be his third collaboration with Director Lee; they previously worked together on Duelist and M.

The comic book revolves around a woman with a successful career in advertising who gets involved in a dangerous situation, and the story is one of love, betrayal and revenge. The lovely Kim Min-hee (Crying Game, Temperature of Love) is being floated as a potential protagonist, but again, some sources call it an offer while others adamantly deny that casting has begun. She very nearly appeared in the upcoming Kundo with Kang Dong-won, so if she does sign on, this will be a chance to make up for that missed opportunity.

I hope we can at least rely on the source that stated that production will start this summer – better finish that script, and quickly!

Duelist is my fav movie, however I couldn't watch M.
I want to see him in a good kdrama, something moody, yet endearing... he isn't really popular with the ahjummas... and he deserves more love than he receives....

What do you mean not popular with ahjummas?! I am almost in that category and he is my favorite.

Forget vampires and time travel shows, 2015 is shaping up to be the year of the Ant (Ant Hell, Ant Man). Not my first choice for an animals pop culture relevance, but at least its not snakes on a place circa 2006 *shivers*

I'm thankful he's staying away from dramas. Until dramas get better at writing, I'm fine with certain actors staying away from them. I think there are a few actors doing drama right now that are "wasted" on it. Often they are the only reason I watch a drama. It's certainly not for the script. It would be nice to see him in something soon.

Kang Dong-won. :-) If he takes this, I'll watch – though the story doesn't pull me in exactly just yet.

Kim Min-hee... well, none of the movies I saw her in (Helpless, Ordinary Couple, Actresses) quite worked for me. Which wasn't her doing really but rather issues of script and directing, things of the certain.

As for Lee Myung-se.... loved loved loved his Duelist and liked his honesty, attitude & general approach to filmmaking when he came for a Q&A in London a couple of years back.

Me too. Kang Dong Won and Lee Myung-se together again would make me so happy.

This is one drama couple I've never even thought of pairing together, but I get the same feelings about them as I did about So Ji-sub and Gong Hyo-jin - WHY didn't someone think of this before?! i.e. they could be great.

P.S. Didn't Kang Dong-won do a movie with Shin Mina last year or am I mistaken?

He did, but if I remember correctly it wasn't feature-length but a short.

Surprised at the lack of Kim Min-hee love here! I hope this casting doesn't just amount to rumors because I'd be totally excited for this pairing!
