Ryu Seung-ryong, Shim Eun-kyung to play father-daughter once again

Get ready for more exciting reunions! Director Yeon Sang-ho, who most recently made headlines with huge summer blockbuster Train to Busan, has started on his latest project, Psychokinesis. He’s already cast the first two main actors, Ryu Seung-ryong (Dorihwaga, Miracle in Cell No. 7) and Shim Eun-kyung (Cantabile Tomorrow), to play a father-daughter duo.

Train to Busan is actually a sequel to the zombie animation film by the same director called Seoul Station, and Ryu Seung-ryong and Shim Eun-kyung voiced father-daughter characters in the animated movie as well! So a good-weird and perhaps not-so-coincidental deja vu moment there. Bonus trivia fact: Shim Eun-kyung makes a short cameo appearance as part of the undead horde in Train to Busan

This new film Psychokinesis is about about an ordinary man who is granted an amazing superpower where he can move objects with his mind. If I had psychokinesis, nothing except maybe Sung Hoon in real life could convince me to move from my comfy sofa. But Ryu Seung-ryong’s character is no couch potato. Like all heroes granted great powers, he takes on the mantle of great responsibility and uses his abilities for good. The movie’s plot primarily revolves around him using his psychokinesis to save his daughter from unnamed trouble that she becomes entangled in.

Since the two main leads are secure, Director Yeon Sang-ho plans to start filming for supernatural action film Psychokinesis early next year as soon as the final script is complete.

Yay! Two of my favorite actors in Chungmuro. Shim Eun-kyung is currently the busiest young actor in the film industry which is not surprising since she is one of the most talented of her generation.

I really miss Ryu Seung-ryong and I'm excited to see him back at work on a new film.

So many exciting films slated to be released next year. Can't wait!

I am glad she hasn't given up on acting. I read an article a couple of months ago ( was it here or on soompi?) that she had been thinking of given up on acting because she had been regretting some of the project choices she had made in the past, it seemed like she had been going through some sort of depression. Glad she has not given up.

Chungmoro actor should stay on chungmoro. Don't bother to do drama who only recognized by rating which is not indicated if their acting.
Drama is good for money because once you get popular you will get so many cf. But if it failed in the rating like what happened with nodsme cantabile, the actor share the burden though some of the are great actor

The criticisms after Tomorrow Cantabile's failure took a toll on her. She was used to being praised for her great acting and TC was quite the learning experience.

I'm glad it didn't take a long time for her to get back into acting.

That's a shame. I really liked that drama - I thought it was really educational when they talked about the classical music history. And of course, it put Park Bo Geum on the radar. I thought her acting was appropriate for an anime character brought to life; if there were any problems with the show I lay them on the fault of the writing being weak in places.

Shim Eun-kyung shouldn't have been blamed for the failure of TC - after all, she could only work w/ what she got on the script.

Quite amazing the # of actresses who had their careers take off after "Sunny."

Hopefully, AoY will do the same for its excellent female cast.

I wonder whatever happened to movie Fabricated City, starring Shim Eun Kyung and Ji Chang Wook? It's been so long and there's no news or promo material either.

^This! The last time I heard anything from it might have been in January or something. It's odd, seeing as a popular actor like Ji Chang Wook stars in it.

I find Ryu Seung Ryo soooo handsome and he's such a good actor!! First saw him in Personal Taste, then the cameo in MLFAS and then in the movie Masquerade with Lee Byun Hun. I love him!

I'm Amazed at how people did not care for Tomorrow Cantabile's. I found it funny it came up here today because I was watching it again last night. I totally love that comedy/romance drama! Every actor did a marvelous job of breathing life to their characters. I fell in love with them all! I was awe struct buy the music played and became even more interested in the piano. The photography, the scenes shot, the editing and so on... I thought were well done. Kudos to everyone on that project.
Shim Eun-Kyung did a fantastic job I thought. She portrayed Nodame as she was meant to be, crazy talented, wacky, endearing, pure honesty and very kind. Lol the script was based off a comic book after all...I found it Amusing. ..Entertaining. ..and (for me) very Uplifting. :) lol.

I'm glad she didn't drop out either and I look forward to her upcoming role. Fighting!

Thank you so much for your site and the super fast and "on spot" recaps and comments. I Love to come here immediately after I watch my episodes because you catch the details I some times miss plus your readers comments are great too.
Thanks everyone! :D

Cantabile Tomorrow is honestly my favorite drama. I could watch it over and over. Yes, Naeil is a little grating in the first couple episodes, but once they got a handle on the character, the show just felt like a sweet, warm hug everytime. With a classical music soundtrack.

Ditto! I loved Naeil's Cantabile despite what the critics and people said. It was a fun watch. I think overtime when we watch too many Kdramas, we tend to critique every little thing without a new fresh pair of eyes. Even though Cantabile didn't have the heart stopping romance many were expecting, it did have heart; in friendship, comraderie, and music. I have watched almost over 6 years of dramas so to appreciated the unappreciated underated dramas makes me happy to support them. You're doing good Shim Eun Kyung! Your character brought a lot of joy to us! I wish this big sister can give you a hug. Eun Kyung ah! Fighting! <3 <3
