Im Siwan to Play Young Choir Leader in Upcoming Movie Set in the 1950s
ZE:A‘s Im Siwan has been cast in an upcoming historical film entitled “Oppa’s Thought” (literal translation).
All eyes have been on the rising star since the end of tvN’s “Misaeng,” and fans of the young talent have keenly waited for news about his next acting project. It was finally revealed on March 18 that Im Siwan has chosen to appear on an upcoming film from production company NEW, the producers of 2013’s hit film “The Attorney.”
According to the producers, Im Siwan will be playing a young choir leader named Sang Ryul. The plot is inspired by the story of a children’s choir that actually existed during the Korean War in the early 1950s.
With a budget of ten billion KRW (approximately nine million USD), “Oppa’s Thought” is one of the major pieces to come out from NEW this year. The movie will mark Im Siwan’s second time to work together with the team, following his appearance on “The Attorney.” The filming will reportedly start next month.
