On October 24, both parties revealed to Newsen that, “It is true that we received a cast offer for ‘After Love.’ However, we’re only at a stage where we have just put it into a state of positive consideration. There is no definite casting decisions made yet.”
Park Shi Hoo’s return is especially of great interest, since his sexual harassment incident last year. After that he quietly made a comeback in China through the film “Scent.” He has been very cautious and hesitant in making a comeback in Korea, and if this deal goes through it would be his first Korean project since his 2012 film, “I Am a Murderer” (a.k.a. “Confession of Murder”).
Meanwhile, “After Love” will be a film that has received much investment from China. It will depict the story of the love and breakup between a man and a woman. This traditional melodrama film will be shot in China as well as Jeju Island in Korea. It will have its crank in later this year once the major characters have all been cast.
