“The Witch: Part 1. The Subversion” is a 2018 mystery action film about a questionable accident that leaves numerous dead. The film tells the story that begins as a mysterious figure approaches high school student Ja Yoon (Kim Da Mi), who has lived a normal life without remembering the past after escaping alone the night of the accident.

Although Warner Bros. Korea was initially in charge of the investment and distribution of “The Witch 2,” the company withdrew from the Korean film business, bringing uncertainty to production plans. Afterwards, NEW’s content production business subsidiary STUDIO&NEW signed an equity investment contract with director Park Hoon Jung’s film company, and NEW will be in charge of the investment and distribution of “The Witch 2.”
Lee Jong Suk enlisted as a public service worker in March 2019, and he will be discharged in December.
