Park Shin-yang tackles daddy duties in new film
After turning down the lead in the upcoming KBS drama Iron Man, signs point to Park Shin-yang (Sign, Painter of the Wind) harking back to his acting days of yore. After a two-year hiatus from the big screen (his last movie was Man on the Edge), he’s agreed to take on the lead in the upcoming film Dad and Daughter (a working title), which is described as a human comedy.
In the movie, something unexpected happens to a father-daughter duo, and while that sounds a little ominous, we’re told that the movie will be full of laughter (but also raw emotions) and the tone will be delightful (but emotional). It sounds like the type of character he can really excel in, and has performed well in the past. It doesn’t help that I have a weakness for watching daddies and daughters together — I can already tell this movie is going to slay me.
Dad and Daughter needs to fill its supporting cast, then hopes to begin filming in December for a release in the first half of 2015.
