Feature Debut of KAFA Graduate PARK Ji-wan

Veteran star KIM Hye-soo has wrapped production on her latest film, the upcoming thriller The Day I Died (translated title). From first time feature director PARK Ji-wan, the film completed filming on November 5.

KIM plays Hyun-soo, a detective who tries to track down a girl who disappeared off of a cliff during a stormy night. KIM’s co-stars include PARASITE breakout actress LEE Jung-eun, A Haunting Hitchhike lead ROH Jeong-eui and KIM Sun-young of MAL·MO·E: The Secret Mission.

Following her debut in the 1990s, KIM has remained at the forefront of the film industry in Korea, having racked up such notable credits as Tazza: The High Rollers (2006), The Thieves (2012), Coin Locker Girl (2015) and last year’s hit financial thriller Default.

The Day I Died is the feature directorial debut of PARK Ji-wan, a graduate of the Korean Academy of Film Arts (KAFA), the alma mater of Korean filmmakers such as BONG Joon-ho. She previously made the shorts High School Girls (2008), a Grand Prize winner at the SEOUL International Women’s Film Festival, and My Old Lady (2009). PARK also worked as a scripter (a Korean film position similar to a continuity supervisor but which often serves as a training ground for future director) on Castaway on the Moon (2009) and Haunters (2010).

The film is currently in post-production and is scheduled to be released at some point in 2020.
