Girls’ Generation’s YoonA And Jo Jung Suk Share Excitement For Upcoming Action Film
“Exit” is a new style of disaster-action film about a young, unemployed man Yong Nam (played by Jo Jung Suk), who coincidentally runs into a junior from his college club Eui Joo (played by YoonA). They escape from downtown as it becomes enveloped in poisonous gas.
Jo Jung Suk will be taking on the role of Yong Nam, who is criticized by his family for continuously failing to find a job.
YoonA will be playing Eui Joo, the deputy branch manager of the convention hall where Yong Nam’s mother’s 70th birthday party takes place. After coincidentally running into Yong Nam, she is thrown into chaos before she can even reminisce about her college years with him.
The film also boasts a star-studded cast of veteran actors. Go Doo Shim and Park In Hwan play Yong Nam’s reliable mother and impatient father. Kim Ji Young will be taking on the role of Yong Nam’s fierce older sister Jung Hyun.
On behalf of the film’s cast and crew, Jo Jung Suk stated, “It feels like a dream that filming for ‘Exit’ is about to begin. We will work hard to film to make the production staff’s new challenge shine.”
YoonA added, “I’m excited to work with Jo Jung Suk as part of an action duo. I hope we can film safely, with no accidents. We will do our best.”
“Exit” will be director Lee Sang Geun’s film debut, after receiving a lot of attention at the Mise-en-scène Short Film Festival. It will be wrapping up filming in the latter half of the year and is slated to air in summer of 2019.
