Ryu Seung-ryong, Shim Eun-kyung to play father-daughter once again
Get ready for more exciting reunions! Director Yeon Sang-ho, who most recently made headlines with huge summer blockbuster Train to Busan, has started on his latest project, Psychokinesis. He’s already cast the first two main actors, Ryu Seung-ryong (Dorihwaga, Miracle in Cell No. 7) and Shim Eun-kyung (Cantabile Tomorrow), to play a father-daughter duo.
Train to Busan is actually a sequel to the zombie animation film by the same director called Seoul Station, and Ryu Seung-ryong and Shim Eun-kyung voiced father-daughter characters in the animated movie as well! So a good-weird and perhaps not-so-coincidental deja vu moment there. Bonus trivia fact: Shim Eun-kyung makes a short cameo appearance as part of the undead horde in Train to Busan.
This new film Psychokinesis is about about an ordinary man who is granted an amazing superpower where he can move objects with his mind. If I had psychokinesis, nothing except maybe Sung Hoon in real life could convince me to move from my comfy sofa. But Ryu Seung-ryong’s character is no couch potato. Like all heroes granted great powers, he takes on the mantle of great responsibility and uses his abilities for good. The movie’s plot primarily revolves around him using his psychokinesis to save his daughter from unnamed trouble that she becomes entangled in.
Since the two main leads are secure, Director Yeon Sang-ho plans to start filming for supernatural action film Psychokinesis early next year as soon as the final script is complete.
