Ryu Seung-Wan's Next a Crime Thriller?
A recent Cine21 article hinted that a possible collaboration with Kane Kosugi will be one of those projects. Kosugi was the first to approach Ryu with an offer for a film - which he eventually refused - but the two decided to go for another story and a different writer. The interesting short for Motorola the two shot together, Timeless, is just the first fruit of their partnership. Another project is 내가 집행한다 (I Enforce), which we featured in a recent preview, a grittier, more back-to-basics actioner which sounds terrific. And now the first few tidbits about a fourth, entirely different project, started hitting the Korean press this weekend. The film will be entitled 부당거래 (Unfair Deal), and reminds of Choi Ho's terrific 사생결단 (Bloody Tie), with prosecutors and detectives engaging in sinister dealings with an important murder suspect at stake. Still nothing finalized as of yet, but Ryu Seung-Beom is expected to play a young prosecutor, while Hwang Jung-Min is the top candidate to play the veteran detective participating in this deal. Film will start shooting in February.
