Yoon Kye-sang and Jung Yumi’s Come, Closer

Yoon Kye-sang (Who Are You?, Road No. 1) and Jung Yumi (Oki’s Movie, Que Sera Sera) (two of my favorites!) are starring in an upcoming movie together, called Come, Closer.

This project was announced last year, but news has been fairly quiet about it until now, with the film slated for theatrical release next month. It’s also the sexiest I’ve ever seen Jung Yumi looking, with her smoky eyes and trendy clothing. (She’s tended to play eccentric, 4-D oddballs in most of her roles.)

The movie is an omnibus feature that follows the broken relationships of five couples: Yoon and Jung play one couple, and indie-pop singer Yozoh and Yoon Hee-seok (Gumiho: Tale of the Fox’s Child) form another pairing. (Others haven’t been listed yet, but initial reports made mention of a gay couple being among them.) A bit of trivia: Jung Yumi and Yozoh have acted together before in the indie film Cafe Noir, which was Yozoh’s acting debut.

Instead of coming out with a trailer video first, this film is releasing special videos of each of the couples. The first, which you can watch below, is Yoon and Jung’s portion, and starts out with the words, “Because of you… I’m ruined for dating!” (as in, “You’ve screwed me up for relationships”). Jung Yumi wants to get over him and asks why she isn’t good enough, and the ending titles read “The five symptoms of a broken love.”

Directing is Kim Jong-kwan, who has been praised for his sensitive touch and delicate sensibility. The actors reportedly took this project on for no pay, to allow the modest budget to be focused on keeping the quality of the film high. Based on the clip below, you can really get that spare indie vibe, mixed with a delicate visual appeal.

Come, Closer will release on October 28.

I'm looking forward to Come Closer because of Yoon Kye Sang and Jung Yumi.

He was great in Who Are You?
She was really quirky in The Great Gye Choon Bin.

No pay? I don't know why, but I feel slightly warm inside reading that. There are still actors out there who really do it for the art.

I felt the same thing! I admire them so much more because of it. So many actors say that but few ever take weeks or months out of their busy lives to shoot a movie for no pay! Hopefully this trend continues.

I love how the meaning changes in the title if there is a comma. (Obviously, there isn't a comma in the Korean title, so I guess it was just a fluke.) Without the comma, it's just one command: come closer. But with a comma (and I guess it should really be a period if we go this route), it means that there are two commands. The first one is "come" and as if the person isn't coming close enough, the second command is (even) "closer."

Regarding that errant comma: are you sure the character's name is not "Closer", and the other character is calling for her? lols

I love Yoon Kye-Sang. He did a great job in She's 19 along with the late Jung Da-Bin and Crazy For Love opposite Lee Mi-Yeon. I wish to see him being paired up with Moon Geun-Young either in a movie or a series. Sort of like comedy-romance type of project.

Wow, Yoon Kye Sang doing this project for free! How noble of him. I can't wait for this movie. High time he acts the lead. I refused to watch Triple and Road No.1 after watching him in WHO ARE YOU? which I'd highly recommend to those who haven't watch it. Even Javabeans did an excellent recap of it and gave it an 8 rating! Who Are You is very popular in other countries except S Korea. Are they stll filming Come Closer? Please can someone let me know the film location so that I can fly over to Seoul asap to STALK Yoon Kye Sang! LOL!
