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.

It's interesting to know Yozoh acting in low profile movies, i love her voice and she's really sweet looking. I don't really watch a lot of movies since i prefer dramas over movies but i kinda like how the storyline sounds, should be interesting. However, i've some doubts about this since it's going to consist of 5 different stories, i just hope it won't comes off as choppy..

Low profile movies give me a raw feeling and i like it compare to the overly-processed commercial movies. It seems more realistic too.. not sure if i'm making sense here...

I tend to like films with lots of different plots woven together, so this makes me excited. It's always nice to see actors work without pay...at least for me that signals that someone really believes in a project.

As much as I love Yoon Kye-sang, I still think he's looking for his breakthrough role. I don't think it'll be in this film, but he's too good of an actor not to be noticed.

Am I the only one who was hoping YKS would land the role of the latter couple?
