Director JO Eun-sung Returns with New Romance
SIM Hee-sub and JEON Hye-jin will join forces in the upcoming Korean melodrama Romantic Factory (translated title), the latest film from director JO Eun-sung. Shooting is expected to kick off around the middle of October.
The film follows former soccer player Bok-seo (SIM Hee-sub), who retired from competitive sports after developing a heart problem following an accident, and his burgeoning romance with Bok-hee (JEON Hye-jin), his fellow worker at the factory where he is employed.
Active across the big and small screen as well as commercial and indie films, SIM Hee-sub has played small roles in major tentpoles such as this year’s Steel Rain2: Summit and last summer’s The Divine Fury, and is well known for his leading roles in acclaimed indies such as Mate (2019).
