The star has been very active recently, starring in last year’s Southbound and Hwayi: A Monster Boy, while also having completed filming on Tazza 2 and Haemoo. Meanwhile, YOO is a reliable supporting star who has featured in dozens of modern Korean hits, such as Attack the Gas Station (1999) and King and the Clown (2005).
Filming for Top Secret Investigation will get underway in June in Busan.
