Jung Yumi and Gong Yoo team up in Crucible

Gong Yoo (Finding Kim Jong-wook) and Jung Yumi (Oki’s Movie) have been cast in the movie Crucible, which is adapted from a novel of the same name by author Gong Ji-young. (I’m not very up on the Korean literary scene, but Gong is a name I recognize, having been recommended to me by a friend and also by my mother; she’s a popular and well-regarded novelist.)

The book is based on a real-life rape case that occurred at a Gwangju school for the deaf, albeit reworked into a fictionalized retelling. The story centers around a teacher at the school and a human rights activist; the plot unfolds after an assault occurs in secret at the school, and follows the process as the tragedy is uncovered and becomes known to the outside world. Gong Yoo will play the teacher who is helped by Jung Yumi’s activist character, the latter of whom possesses a strong sense of justice and is an administrator at a human rights activism organization.

The novel was published in 2009 and was a best-seller that drew much attention toward the real incident and led to the formation of an investigative committee a year later.

This sounds pretty meaty, and it doesn’t hurt that I am a fan of both actors. And while I like Gong Yoo a lot (I leave the hardcore lovin’ to girlfriday, as I value my life and physical safety), I absolutely adore Jung Yumi, who can be feisty and vulnerable, energetic and melancholy, and all at once to boot.

The film will begin filming in mid-February, and aims for a fall premiere.

I adore Jung Yumi from Que Sera Sera drama! Glad seeing her back with something.
She doesn`t has many works, but she`s a lovely actress that impressed me with just one role.

Absolutely the same words I have about Gong Yoo: loved him in Coffee Prince, glad he`s back.

The source novel`s summary sounds promising, looking forward to the adaptation! :D

i love Gong Yoo but where's all the love for Jung Yumi in this thread? haha. in fact, i'm more excited about seeing her act than Gong Yoo cause i rarely see her anywhere else.
premise of movie sounds quite intriguing and has potential, and the fact that both actors are wonderful just takes the cake.
looking forward to this one for sure!

Omo JB.. you cracked me up! The same line of convos happened yesterday on twitter too...^^

Yay for Gong Yoo in another project! I hope after this movie, he'll choose a drama again. But I want to see him in a trendy rom-com again actually. He can do all the "serious acting", meaty roles for the movies.. those can give him an film acting award. I am biased over the year end awards by broadcast stations. I always felt they were staged.

Good luck GOng Yoo!

Whether in movies or in drama, I would really love to see him. But yes, I agree, 50 episodes won't be enough to satisfy our craving for YOO.
