Won Bin makes his comeback next month
Are you eager to see Won Bin‘s return project (finally!), Mother [마더]? The film, directed by The Host‘s Bong Joon-ho, has announced its official release date: May 28.
The film co-stars the wonderful Kim Hye-ja (Mom’s Dead Upset) in the role of the titular mother, who fights to save her 28-year-old mentally challenged son when he is wrongly accused of murder. Director Bong has reportedly been preparing this project for the past four years, even before filming The Host, ever since finishing on the 2003 film Memories of Murder.
See the official trailer:
Won Bin hasn’t acted in a film since 2004’s My Brother; he’s taken his time to resume his acting career following his army discharge two years ago.
The film has garnered enough interest to have sold to Japan and France when it had only completed 20% of its filming, and is expected to be officially invited to Cannes Film Festival (along with another strong contender, the soon-to-be-released vampire thriller from Park Chan-wook, Thirst).
