On May 14, it was reported that the two actors would be starring in the new film “My Exceptional Friend” (literal title). The movie is a “human comedy” that will depict the remarkable friendship between two men with opposite strengths and weaknesses.
Shin Ha Kyun will star as Se Ha, a man who has a brilliant mind and an impressive way with words, which he uses to fight back against the prejudices of society. Lee Kwang Soo will star as Dong Goo, a man with outstanding athletic abilities and excellent physical health.
The two protagonists each have a different tragic flaw: Se Ha’s weakness is his body, while Dong Goo’s weakness is his brain. Although the two men are not biologically related, they are an inseparable pair of close friends who have spent over 20 years together living almost as a single entity.
“My Exceptional Friend,” which will be helmed by director Yook Sang Ho, is scheduled to begin filming in late May.
