LEE Jung-jae Stars New 20th Century Fox Offering
 

Actors LEE Jung-jae and YEO Jin-gu are set to star in the upcoming period drama Enemy Soldier. From director CHUNG Yoon-chul, the title is the fifth fully financed local production by 20th Century Fox.
 
YEO features as Prince Gwanghae and the film will chronicle his rise to power during the seven-year war from the perspective of his bodyguard, played by LEE. LEE currently features in the Korean War hit Operation Chromite, following last year’s Assassination, while YEO was also most recently seen in a Korean War title, last year’s Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving Day) holiday release The Long Way Home alongside SUL Kyung-gu.
 
Director of the hit feelgood drama Marathon (2005), CHUNG also helmed Skeletons In The Closet (2007) and the 2008 drama A Man Who Was Superman with HWANG Jung-min.
 
Following the rocky fortunes of Running Man (2013), Slow Video (2014) and IM Sang-soo’s Intimate Enemies (2015), 20th Century Fox hit their stride in Korea with the release of NA Hong-jin’s critically acclaimed hit THE WAILING this spring.
 
Realies Pictures will handle production on the film which kicks off in late August, with a release planned for next year.
