Kim Joo-hyuk and Sohn Ye-jin to reunite on big screen
Sohn Ye-jin (Shark) ended up turning down the fusion historical drama The King’s Face in favor of a movie, and has now confirmed that she’ll be starring in the thriller House Full of Happiness. And because not even one project in film and television this year can be reunion-less, Kim Joo-hyuk (Gu-am Heo Jun) is up to play her leading man. They’ll be reuniting for the first time in six years since their 2008 romantic comedy My Wife Got Married.
House Full of Happiness is the latest from director Lee Kyung-mi of Crush and Blush, and was once courting Song Hye-gyo to headline. The film is about two politicians who are married to each other and about to enter the National Assembly. They’re on the cusp of the happy future they’ve been dreaming of, but then as the election draws near, they get swept up in a terrible incident.
It’s described as a political thriller about an ambitious politician husband, whose wife stubbornly and persistently tackles this “terrible incident” on her own, and in the process digs up a shocking truth. For now that description is neither here nor there until we know a little more about this incident — for instance, is the husband the villain? But at least we know the pairing is great. Sohn Ye-jin has signed on while Kim Joo-hyuk is considering favorably for now.
House Full of Happiness starts shooting in September for a release next year.
