Yoon Kye-sang’s new omnibus film
Yoon Kye-sang (Executioners) has announced his next project, which will be an omnibus film called Just A Little Closer [조금만 더 가까이] in which he’ll act without pay.
The film will weave together five vignettes and will be made with a relatively modest 100 million won budget ($86,000). Each storyline is a different kind of love story, with one being about a couple that reunites after breaking up and another featuring a gay couple. Directing is Kim Jong-kwan, who won an audience award at the Resfest digital film festival and screened at foreign short film festivals with his 2004 How to Operate a Polaroid Camera.
Yoon will take the role of a man who experiences a change of heart after reuniting with a former girlfriend. A rep from the film production team said, “Yoon Kye-sang and the other cast members readily agreed to act without pay because they agreed with the director who wants to focus on the quality of the film as a whole rather than thinking of commercial appeal.”
Shooting will begin at the end of November with the intention of being screened at Pusan International Film Festival and other prominent festivals. In addition to Yoon Kye-sang, also cast is singer-turned-actress Yozoh, who made her acting debut in the well-received small film Cafe Noir.
