Busan’s fateful relationship between two fathers and one son

With the shooting wrapped and the release approaching, the movie Busan [父,山] has released its first poster, featuring its stars Go Chang-seok, Yoo Seung-ho, and Kim Young-ho. (At first, I thought 16-year-old Yoo Seung-ho was posing with a cigarette, till I realized the lollipop was just meant to look like one. lol.)

The story unfolds around the “fateful relationship” of the three main characters, with Go Chang-seok playing a ne’er-do-well who has never been a proper father figure to his son (Yoo Seung-ho), with whom he lives a shabby lifestyle. However, when his son becomes ill with heart cancer, in an effort to save him he seeks out the boy’s biological father (Kim Young-ho), who abandoned his family 18 years ago in pursuit of his own success.

The title works in two meanings: The story literally takes place in the southern city of Busan, while the hanja characters read “father, mountain,” which refers to a father as being like a mountain, i.e., a supportive force to his son.

Young star Yoo Seung-ho is known as an “um-chin-ah” — or boy next door, the kind of guy your mother would love. This role marks a complete change in his image, as he has played mostly “good” characters in the past (several of them young kings). Busan will open in theaters in October.

@findland, it's funny because he's called "Little So Ji-sub" because of the resemblance. A while back I read an article about So Ji-sub, who said he felt sort of sorry to Yoo Seung-ho for always being associated with him (rather than just by his own name). But then he laughed it off and said that he (SJS) had actually experienced a rise in internet searches because of his "association" to Yoo Seung-ho. Cute.

And i read somewhere that Yoo Seung Ho said he doesn't mind being associated with So Ji Sub, and SJS is one of his role model.

Yoo Seung Ho is definitely a promising actor. And being so young, he still has a very.......long way to go.
This movie sounds really interesting, would look forward when it's available!

@Javabeans: Ahh! That's a cute thing but that what I expected, actually I think Yoo Seung-ho is an outstanding actor when he was just 12, or 13 years old. He was a handsome kid at that time, but now he's grown up and I am just amazed that the more a look at him the more I think about SJS ... haha

If anything, Yoo Seung Ho probably exceeds So Ji Sub in acting. Have you seen the movies when he was young? That is dayum skill.

Was he in a movie titled "THE WAY HOME"? If he was that little boy, it's a MUST see. It was so beautiful and touching. He was adorable in that movie. You will not be disappointed, I promise!

hard to believe he's this grown now; he's one of my favorite child actors (at that time, now 16?) he's a cutie, i liked him in Paws, Sad Love Story, the way home, etc. How time flies! He does resemble SJS if anything i think he's more handsome than him (now), and SJS was among my fave K actors since I'm Sorry I Love You. All the best to you Yo seung ho!

i meant to add this re the photo -- i'm glad to know that's a lollipop he's got & not a cigarette as he's too young to smoke & i'm sure he'll be a good role model if he stays away from that habit!
