New Family Drama from HOW TO STEAL A DOG Director
Following his adaptation of Barbara O’Connor’s novel How To Steal A Dog (2014), director KIM Sung-ho will return with another family drama next year. Mother’s Notebook: Recipe of Memories (literal title) features actor LEE Jong-hyeuk in the lead role.

In the film, an elderly woman runs a popular store in a neighbourhood but begins to lose her memory, which leads her to begin writing in a notebook. Meanwhile, she has a tenuous relationship with her son, a part time lecturer.

A major TV star and supporting actor from film titles such as Crush And Blush (2008), Parallel Life (2010) and Hindsight (2011), LEE Jong-hyeuk recently appeared as a lead in the drama My sister, the pig lady (2015). Playing the titular mother in the story will be veteran star LEE Joo-sil, who was last seen in a minor role in runaway zombie hit TRAIN TO BUSAN this summer. 

Director KIM, who also directed the horror Into the Mirror in 2003, teamed up with GANG Hye-jung and KIM Hye-ja for family comedy How To Steal A Dog in 2014, which had two release windows after being identified as a victim of unfair releases practices.

Mother’s Notebook: Recipe of Memories kicked off production on October 25th and is expected to hit screens as early as next May.
