Mystery-Thriller Marks Debut of A TAXI DRIVER Writer CHO Seul-ye
SHIN Min-a is getting ready to return to the big screen for the first time since the 2014 romantic comedy My Love, My Bride. From hit screenwriter and first-time filmmaker CHO Seul-ye, Diva went into production this month.
The mystery-thriller will follow a professional diver known as ‘Diva’ who tries to recapture the memories she lost following a mysterious accident.
A star for the last two decades, SHIN’s most well-known film credits include KIM Tae-
kyun ’s Volcano High (2001), KIM Jee- woon ’s A Bittersweet Life (2005) and ZHANG Lu’s Gyeong-ju (2014).
The film will also feature LEE Yoo-young, known for YUN Jun-
hyeong ’s FATAL INTUITION (2015) and Hong Sangsoo’s Yourself and Yours (2016). Also on board are new performers LEE Kyu- hyung (YOU CALL IT PASSION, 2015) and OH Ha- nui (Marionette).
Director CHO is responsible for the screenplays of INGtoogi: The Battle of Internet Trolls (2013) and VANISHING TIME: A BOY WHO RETURNED (2016), both from director UM Tae-
hwa. She was also the script editor for JANG Hun’s smash hit political drama A Taxi Driver (2017), which soared over 12 million admissions last summer.
