    Twelve years after appearing in the blockbuster monster movie The Host (2006) together, actors SONG Kang-ho and PARK Hae-il are set to reunite on screen in the upcoming period drama Naratmalssami (Korean title), to be financed and distributed by Megabox Plus M, the film will mark the directing debut of experienced producer CHO Chul-hyun.

    SONG will take on the role of King Sejong, the fourth King of the Joseon Dynasty, who is credited with creating Hangul, the Korean writing system. PARK will play a monk that assisted the King in his aims but whose contributions are not properly recognized in historical records.

    Filming will kick off for the project during the second half of this year. Before that, SONG will take part in the production of Parasite, the new film by BONG Joon-ho, which begins filming in April. Meanwhile, PARK Hae-il is currently filming the drama High Society with Su Ae. SONG and PARK have acted together in both The Host and Memories of Murder (2003).

    Appearing alongside the former collaborators will be JEON Mi-sun, recently seen in Hide and Seek (2013) and THE LAST RIDE (2016).

    Though CHO Chul-hyun is new to the director’s chair, he has been active as a producer for 20 years with several hits to his name, including Hi, Dharma (2001) and several films by LEE Joon-ik. He also wrote LEE’s period drama The Throne (2015).
