Cha Tae-hyun’s new comedy Hello Ghost
Cha Tae-hyun (Speed Scandal) is pairing up with Kang Ye-won (Haeundae) in a new movie, “human comedy” Hello Ghost. (And for Wish Upon a Star fans, that is indeed Pa-rang in the cast!)
The story brings to mind movies like Heart and Souls and A Christmas Carol, but with a darker twist (considering it’s a comedy): Cha Tae-hyun plays a lonely and depressed man who keeps attempting suicide, but just before he does, he’s visited by ghosts who change his mind. The ghosts all have different personalities (the pervert, the crybaby) and will be played by Lee Moon-soo (Good Morning President), Go Chang-seok (Rough Cut), and Jang Young-nam (Harmony). Meanwhile, Kang Ye-won plays a hospice nurse.
Cha, who is coming off one of the most-attended Korean movies of all time in the comedy Speed Scandal, explained taking the role: “The script was really good, and when I showed it to my wife, she told me to do it right away.” The movie held its first script reading last week and will film through July for a release in the latter half of the year.
