Gwangju Drama Currently Filming
 

Indie star KIM Kkob-bi is currently filming the drama The March for the Lost (translated title) with director PARK Ki-bok and actors KIM Boo-seon and JEON Su-hyeon.

The story centers around a family affected by the Gwangju Democratization Movement of May 1980, often referred to as 5.18 (May 18) in Korea. KIM plays a popular comedian and daughter to Cheol-su, a man who mysteriously vanished during the massacre, and Myeong-hee, a woman who was shot in the head but lives on, suffering trauma from the event every day.

Director PARK’s early steps in the film industry included being a scriptwriter on the drama Dying Puppy and comedy 2424, both from 2002. He has also directed the documentaries Deja-vu In Wonderland (1993) and Mudang-Reconciliation Between The Living And The Dead (2003).

KIM is a prolific actress in independent cinema with a string of credits in Korea, Japan and elsewhere, including YANG Ik-june’s Breathless (2009), SHIN Su-won’s PLUTO (2013) and UCHIDA Eiji’s Greatful Dead (2013).

KIM’s co-stars include KIM Boo-seon of Monster (2014) and Love Forecast (2015) as Myeong-hee and JEON Su-hyeon as Cheol-su.

The March for the Lost began production last August and filming is ongoing.
