Yoo Ji Tae’s directorial release

Movie star Yoo Ji Tae is probably one of few Hallyu stars who’s got some international cachet outside of Korea or Asia due to acting in films like hipster favorites Oldboy and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, and the popular romantic drama Ditto. He was last seen in last year’s epic historical film version of Hwang Jini starring opposite Song Hye Gyo.

Now he takes a seat in the director’s chair for his first directorial release with the 24-minute short film Out of My Intention [나도 모르게] (he’s directed two prior shorts, 2003’s Bicycle Girl — which won an audience award at the Pusan Asia Short Film Festival — and 2005’s How Do the Blind Dream; this is his first theatrical release).

On March 4, Out of My Intention will hold its press conference in Myungdong in Seoul with Yoo and his leads Jo Ahn and Lee Dae Yeon. The film is described as centering on a man entering middle age who embarks on an arduous search for his first love from more than twenty years ago; the directing takes us “between past and present, reality and imagination.”

Those leaves look to me like pumpkin plants... although that's just my guess.

I hear Yoo Ji Tae received exemption from military duty due to injury.

Too bad Korean bboys can't get exemption for injuries....

They can if they hook up with the right kind of corrupt doctors! Ooh did I just say that? Actually it's probably much easier for the rich and/or the less-famous to get bogus exemptions because stars are under such high scrutiny. Which is why guys like Song Seung Heon and Jang Hyuk get caught for trying to cheat...

Apparently only conditionally:

"South Korean athletes have only one way out. Olympic gold, silver or bronze medalists and gold medalists at the Asian Games are exempted."

(from http://joongangdaily.joins.com/article/view.asp?aid=2886408 -- great article, in English. I'm a little surprised at how hardcore the draft-dodging can get. I mean, I get faking illness or exaggerating a health condition -- but deliberately self-injuring to avoid the draft? Yikes.)
