On August 14, it was confirmed that the actors will be starring as the leads of film “Byeon San” (Byeon Mountain). This is the 13th project by director Lee Joon Ik, who previously created several hits including “The King and the Clown,” “Dongju: The Portrait of a Poet,” and “Anarchist from Colony.”
“Byeonsan” is about rapper Hak Soo (Park Jung Min) who returns to his hometown and reunites with his elementary schoolmate Sun Mi (Kim Go Eun). The film will use the unique theme of hip hop to bring a comical yet touching story.
Director Lee Joon Ik explained regarding the lead actors, “Park Jung Min and Kim Go Eun both left strong impressions on me since their debut projects, so I was confident of their acting skills. It is perfect casting for Byeonsan.”
Park Jung Min, who also worked with the director on “Dongju: The Portrait of a Poet,” commented, “As an actor, I believe that receiving another opportunity from a director is an extremely happy occurrence. Working with director Lee Joon Ik was especially fun and special, so I am excited and looking forward to it again.”
Kim Go Eun added, “I have been a fan of director Lee Joon Ik for a long time, so I am glad to be able to work with him through this project. I think having lots of conversations together about the film will provide an opportunity for me to grow further as an actor. Please look forward to it.”
“Byeonsan” is scheduled to begin filming in fall of this year.
