Shim Eun-kyung signs on to web movie Bugs Attack

Filming has just finished for the first movie in a new 10-part omnibus web series Bugs Attack. It’s apparently actually about huge creepy crawly critters waging war on humankind. I’m imagining a weird cross of District 9 meets Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, which sounds intriguing to the sci-fi nerd in me. But the real reason that’s got me especially excited is the group of talented actors that have signed on for the project.

We’ll get to see young rising actress Shim Eun-kyung (Cantabile Tomorrow) reuniting with director Hwang Dong-hyuk, who directed the comedy Miss Granny (and also the intense child-abuse film Silenced), and actor Sung Dong-il (Answer Me 1988), who played her son in it. She plays the lead role in the first part in the series called Mosquitoes.

Shim originally debuted as a child actress, acting as the younger counterpart in very successful dramas like Hwang Jin-yi, Legend, and Merchant Kim Man–deok. However, she became a household name through her compelling (and uproarious) performance in family movie Miss Granny. Unfortunately, her next drama project, Tomorrow Cantabile, turned out to be a bust. So I’ve been looking to see her shine again, and hopefully Bugs Attack will be that chance.

In addition, former KARA girl group member Han Seung-yeon (Her Lovely Heels) has also been cast as another main character in the omnibus series, in the second movie titled Cockroaches.

The formal release date has yet to be announced.

Ikr? She is one busy actress. This is going to be her 5th or 6th movie project for the year.

Been waiting for "Special Citizen" with Choi Min Shik and Kwak Do-Won.

South Korea doesn't lack young talented actresses, it's just those actresses prefer to work in movies than dramas. Ex: Park Bo Young, Shim Eun Kyung, Kim Go Eun, etc

But who can blame them since movies definitely are more favorable than dramas and held up in high regard and they're already established Chungmoro actresses with many movies under their belt.

Sung Dong Il played her son? Do you mean father?

Nope, son! (She gets time-warped back into her young body, but her soul is still the granny.) It's pretty hilarious.

LOL I was just thinking that that description would confuse a lot of people who'd never seen Miss Granny.

And yes, it was pretty hilarious!

With "Sunny" and "Miss Granny" - Shim Eun-kyung has 2 mega-hit films under her belt already which is more than most well-regarded, more veteran actresses (not that SEK isn't quite the vet herself having started in the industry at 9 yrs of age).

Whatever she may look like (in your eyes), she's still only 21, so, yes, young, rising actress.

HA. Well, this will probably be entertaining. The concept of a web movie is interesting to me, though... it seems Korea is really experimenting with the web format.
