Rain, Kang So-ra lead ensemble cast for bicycling movie Uhm Bok-dong


Rain, Kang So-ra

For his first project after marriage, Hallyu singer-actor Rain (Come Back, Ajusshi) has chosen Uhm Bok-dong, a film set during the Japanese occupation era, about the titular character based on a real-life cyclist, who became a symbol of hope for the oppressed Korean people.

The movie will delve into how Uhm Bok-dong became such a beloved figure in Korea’s independence movement and it will also feature the freedom fighting group Euiyeoldan. Rain will play the people’s hero, cyclist Uhm Bok-dong, and Kang So-ra (Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho) has confirmed her role as the female lead. She will be reuniting with her Sunny friends Min Hyo-rin (Persevere, Gu Hae-ra) and Park Jin-joo (1% of Anything), who have also signed on to be in the film.

At Director Kim Yoon-sung’s request, actor Lee Beom-soo has agreed to try his hand at helping produce the film, and may even make a small cameo in it. Other actors who have joined the cast to play integral (although as-of-yet unannounced) roles in the film include Go Chang-seok (Kill Me, Heal Me) and Lee Kyung-young (D-Day), and Lee Shi-un (W—Two Worlds).

While the subject matter of the movie may be serious and heavy, just looking at the cast so far, especially with the addition of comedic actor Lee Shi-un and the Sunny girls, makes me think that we might be in for an uplifting, hopeful film. So if everything goes well, we could be in for a movie in the vein of Forrest Gump, which would be amazing.

Filming for Uhm Bok-dong will begin starting this April.

Omg omg omg

I watched Sunny at a particularly vulnerable time in my life so it'll always hold a special place in my heart. The idea of even some of the cast finally reuniting in a film together is just

I think it's been awhile since Kang Sora has done a film, and now it's quite exciting that she's reuniting with some of the Sunny cast. Hope this film does well~
