Lee Sun Kyun (Romantic Island) and Seo Woo (Crush and Blush) are the leads in Paju, being directed by Park Chan Ok (Jealousy is My Middle Name). Park been preparing for this film since he thought of the storyline seven years ago. Paju is the name of a city in Korea. The movie will show the city as being mysterious and full of fog.
According to TPS Company, Paju is about Choi Eun Mo (Seo Woo) who had a lonely childhood growing up without her parents. When Eun Mo falls in love with her brother-in-law, Kim Joong Sik (Lee), she decides to go away to avoid seeing him. However, they meet again after her sister dies. Eun Mo struggles between her feelings for Joong Sik and her suspicions that he’s somehow involved in her sister’s death. Joong Sik hides the truth along with his feelings.
This role will show a different side of Lee Sun Kyun from the gentle image viewers are accustomed to, as the character is very complex and mysterious. Seo Woo is relatively new to the industry; she debuted in 2007 and won three Best New Actress awards in 2008 for Crush and Blush. Film creators said that Seo Woo’s youthful appearance yet mature expression made her perfect for the part, which shows Eun Mo go from a 15-year-old girl to a woman in her early twenties.
Filming for Paju began on February 16 and will continue for about three months. The movie will premiere in the latter half of 2009.
KP’s note: Judging by the released photos, it doesn’t exactly seem like a happy, feel-good movie, does it?
