Executioners cast, Yoon Kye-sang to begin filming
Who’s ready for more Yoon Kye-sang (Who Are You)? His next film, Executioners, was announced late last year, but now casting has completed and filming is set to begin this month.
The 31-year-old actor has been cast with 28-year-old Cha Soo-yeon (The World They Live In) and plays a newbie prison executioner, while Jo Jae-hyun (New Heart) plays a veteran prison guard.
In the film, Yoon’s character begins his job with hopeful ambition to climb the career ranks, but as he begins his work, he begins feeling shame and despair. Cha is the supportive and optimistic girlfriend who tries to comfort him as he descends into turmoil.
The film is directed by Choi Jin-ho of Last Present and Quiz King. With one movie and one drama (Triple) planned for the first half of 2009, looks like this’ll be a busy year for Yoon, or at least I hope so.
