“Glory Day” is the first winner of CJ E&M’s rookie director project “Butterfly Project Contest.” The film will be produced by Bori Pictures and helmed by director Choi Jeong Yeol who has received awards for best short film at both the Blue DragonAwards and Grand Bell Awards.
Lim Soon Rae of Bori Pictures comments, “As it’s a film that requires actors with synergy that can bring the energetic story to life, we took our time and put in great effort to find new faces. They are fresh youthful faces, but you can also expect them to be the ones to take up the mantle of the next generation of cinema.”
“Glory Day” tells the coming-of-age story of four adolescents whose lives are changed after an incident on a fateful night. Filming is slated to begin on May 1.
