Uhm Tae-woong’s cell phone thriller

It’s a busy filming year for Uhm Tae-woong; he next takes a stab at a manager role in the new thriller Cell Phone [핸드폰], directed by Kim Han-min of last year’s mystery-thriller Paradise Murdered [극락도 살인사건].

Following his recent roles in films Forever the Moment and You’re Far Away, Uhm spent five months filming the creature feature Chaw with up-and-coming actress Jung Yumi. Now he returns from a brief break to film Cell Phone, which purports to be full of twists and unconventional material, although the premise sounds straightforward enough: Uhm plays the manager of a top female actress who’s being threatened with blackmail. He risks all to seek the truth and protect his client, facing off with the blackmailer in a two-man showdown.

The other male lead will be cast soon, and although the title immediately brings to mind the movie Cellular, the film is described, rather, as “a Chaser-like thriller.” Gee, everything’s Chaser-like these days, ain’t it? I guess that’s what happens when you follow the money trail.

I loved him in Delightful Girl. He's a good actor but unfortunately I haven't seen the remainder of his other series completely. I'll have to look for his movies.

Javabeans,
I've been wondering about Jung Yumi...Any updates on her?
She does not appear in Korean news much, or does she?

I liked his manager character a lot in Stranger Than Heaven.

Sounds great. Korea has been pumping out some really good crime-thrillers over the past year, so there won't be a problem if it's "Chaser-like", and especially considering it's from the same director as Paradise Murdered, you just can't go wrong!
