Kang Haneul, Park Bo-young in contention for first-love melo Your Wedding
Park Bo-young just signed on to a new drama (the upcoming and hilarious-sounding Oh My Ghostess), but she’s looking to add a movie to her slate, titled Your Wedding. Also positively considering the movie is Kang Haneul (another actor piling on the projects recently, after C’est Si Bon, Twenty, Missing Noir M and Misaeng); reps for both actors confirmed that they’d received offers and synopses, but weren’t finalized castings.
The movie is described as a melodrama about a man who receives a wedding invitation from his first love, which jumps back and forth between the past and the present as it explores the meaning of love. Oof, cue the heart-wrenching. I’m guessing it’s something of a “The one that got away” story, which sounds like the kind of painfully poignant stuff that gets you with its wistful what-ifs and if-onlys. Sort of like Introduction to Architecture, which also intercut scenes from the past alongside the present day. Sigh, Kang Haneul seems determined to break my heart in his roles (okay, except for the ones where he’s playing crazy people or killers).
Well, Korea does love its first-love melos, whether those first love stories end happily or sadly. (One article points out the saying that the Korean film industry has never had a first love melo film fail, which I’m sure isn’t actually true, though it sure seems like it is.) Is it too much to hope that this first-love melo unfolds as he’s on the way to the wedding chapel to object? SPEAK NOW. DON’T HOLD YOUR PEACE! Renovatio, renovatio!
Your Wedding plans to begin filming later this year.
