Thriller Among 3 Lead Roles for LEE Sung-min in 2018
LEE Sung-min’s latest vehicle Witness (translated title) wrapped its three-month shoot on the 20th of last month. Production for the upcoming crime-thriller took place in the South Korean border city of Paju. In the film, LEE plays the role of Sang-hoon, a man who sees his normal life turned upside down after witnessing a brutal murder in the middle of his apartment complex.
Witness was written and directed by CHO Kyu-jang, whose previous film, Mood of the Day (2016) was invited to screen in the Panorama section of the 2016 Shanghai International Film Festival. Lead actor LEE Sung-min will be joined on screen by KIM Sang-ho (The Happy Life, 2007), JIN Gyeong (Master, 2016) and KWAK Si-yang (Familyhood, 2016).
Audiences will see a lot of LEE Sung-min in 2018. In addition to headlining Witness, the actor will star in two more upcoming releases; spy-thriller Duke and romantic-comedy Wind Wind Wind.
Witness will be distributed by Next Entertainment World and is expected to be released sometime in 2018.
