Last September, it was reported that Big Bang T.O.P’s new movie, “Alumni,” had indefinitely suspended all filming due to the main director’s sudden departure from the production crew. It looks like filming has fully resumed lately, after the movie found a replacement director.
On November 8, local media OhMyStar reported that the filming has been going well after Park Heung Soo took over the lead director role. Park Heung Soo was the assistant director for blockbuster movies such as “The Front Line” and “Everything about My Wife.”
The filming reportedly resumed in mid-September. Originally, it was supposed to have 60 filming sessions, but due to the director change, the overall filming period is expected to be longer. One of the producers of the film was quoted as saying, “The filming is expected to take place until December. The script has changed a bit and our team has gone through some changes as well. The staff and the cast is the same. It looks like the overall chemistry is actually better than the past. Everyone’s doing their best.”
Big Bang’s T.O.P, meanwhile, is currently on his U.S. concert tour and will not be able to join the filming crew until next week at the earliest. Instead, the filming team is first finishing up scenes that do not include T.O.P in it.
“Alumni” is a family movie about a North Korean spy that gets dispatched to South Korea with his son. T.O.P plays the son of the North Korean spy, and tries to save his younger sister from danger.
