Joo Sang-wook signs on for Trot
Joo Sang-wook (Sly and Single Again) has taken the lead in the movie Trot, in the role previously offered to Choi Jin-hyuk (who opted to sign up for the Fated to Love You remake instead). Joo’s character is a bicycle deliveryman who begins working in Seoul’s Hwanghak-dong marketplace after enduring a painful experience.
At first, he keeps to himself, laboring diligently and saving all of his earnings, but he soon becomes entwined in the lives of those he delivers for. The actor will collaborate for the first time with movie vet Ahn Sung-ki (Broken Arrow), who will play a Hwanghak-dong bookstore owner.
Joo said, “I was really attracted to my character, who gets mixed up in the lives of the warm and honest market people.” He continued, “I’m excited to work with Ahn Sung-ki sunbae and the rest of the cast; I think we can make an enjoyable product.”
Trot will delve into the minor issues and romances of those who work at the market, and I can already see Joo Sang-wook as the tortured soul who finds hope again as he begins to help others. I’m not even sure where trot music comes into play, but overall I’m getting a positive, happy vibe from articles on the movie, and I hope Trot will deliver.
