1,000,000,000 – An Introduction
KP’s note: Naver Movie lists the movie title as 1,000,000,000 십억: A Million, which is odd because 십억 is one billion, not one million. My only explanation would be that one billion won is roughly (very roughly) a million dollars USD, so maybe they decided to call it that.
The cast and crew of upcoming movie A Billion completed filming on May 6. Beginning on February 22, they shot for two and a half months in Seoul and on location in Australia.
A Billion is the story of eight reality show contestants who experience close encounters with death while competing for 1,000,000,000 won in a game of survival. The film has a well-known cast – Park Hae Il (32), Park Hee Soon (39), Shin Mina (25), Lee Min Ki (24), Jung Yu Mi (26), Lee Chun Hee (30), and Go Eun Ah (20).
