Uhm Jung Hwa Confirmed To Star In Comedy Film With Park Sung Woong
Uhm Jung Hwa is returning to the big screen!
The singer and actress has been cast in the film “Okay! Madam” (literal title) as Mi Young, the owner of a popular Korean traditional donut (also known as twisted breadsticks) store. She is married to Suk Hwan (played by Park Sung Woong), a computer repairs expert.
The film is an action comedy about a married couple who need to save their family after they are hijacked during their first family trip together.
This is Uhm Jung Hwa’s first acting project after the drama “You Are Too Much” and her first film in four years after “Wonderful Nightmare.”
Uhm Jung Hwa’s character, Mi Young, is a cheerful and loving mother and wife who works hard at her store to support her husband and child. Park Sung Woong’s character, Suk Hwan, is an innocent character who is deeply in love with his wife and therefore very different from some of the darker characters Park Sung Woong has played in the past.
Lee Sang Yoon has been cast as Chul Seung, a North Korean spy who hijacks an airplane to find one of his missing agents and throws Mi Young’s family trip in chaos. Bae Jung Nam plays a newly recruited flight attendant and Lee Sun Bin plays Gwi Soon, the best agent in North Korea.
The movie begins filming in February.
