[Talk of the town]
Japanese director Inudou Isshin is Bucheon-bound for ‘Zero Focus’

Perhaps director Inudou Isshin fell in love with Korea when he last visited the country last year to promote “Goo Goo the Cat” at the Pusan International Film Festival in Busan.

The director, whose previous films include “Josee, the Tiger and the Fish” (2003) and “House of Himiko” (2005), chose the Bucheon Fantastic Studio in Bucheon, Gyeonggi, to shoot his next film, “Zero Focus.”

The film crew will arrive on Feb. 26 and film for five days.

Fantastic Studio is an outdoor film set that recreates Korea in the early and mid 1900s. “Rustic Period,” a hit television drama and the film “Low Life” were both filmed here.

Zero Focus, a remake of the 1961 film of the same name, tells the story of one couple’s journey through life and is based on a novel by Seicho Matsumoto.
