20th Century Fox Backs I WANT TO SEE YOUR PARENTS’ FACES
20th Century Fox Korea has reported that their forthcoming projects, the school bullying drama I Want to See Your Parents’ Faces (translated title), began production last month on the 29th. The project assembles SUL Kyung-gu, OH Dal-su, CHUN Woo-hee, MOON So-ri and others under director KIM Ji-hoon, previously known for his work on blockbusters.
The story, which is based on a Japanese play of the same name, begins when a student at a prestigious middle school is found unconscious by a lake and the parents of his classmates are called in to school.
SUL Kyung-gu, last seen in The Merciless, OH Dal-su of Assassination (2015) and MOON So-ri of The Handmaiden (2016) are on board as parents of students at the school, along with GO Chang-seok (The Con Artists, 2014) and KIM Hong-pa (Inside Men, 2015). KANG Sin-Il (THE GREAT ACTOR, 2016) is cast as the school principal while CHUN Woo-hee (THE WAILING, 2016) will play the student’s homeroom teacher.
Director KIM made the 2004 gangster-comedy Mokpo, Gangster’s Paradise before moving on to blockbuster fare first with the historical drama May 18 (2007), then the at-sea creature feature Sector 7 (2011) and the inferno drama The Tower in 2012.
Having achieved great success last year with NA Hong-jin’s THE WAILING, 20th Century Fox Korea has been active in the country since their thriller Running Man in 2013. They have also released the comedy Slow Video (2014), IM Sang-soo’s Intimate Enemies (2015) and the period war film WARRIORS OF THE DAWN last month.
I Want to See Your Parents’ Faces is due out sometime in 2018.
