Zo In-sung drops out of ‘Martial Arts’


Zo In-sung

Actor Zo In-sung has dropped out of the movie he was working on, tentatively titled “Martial Arts.” His agency reported that the movie schedule no longer matched Zo’s.

Zo was cast for “Martial Arts” three years ago and has declined a few other movies while waiting for production to crank up.

“We are sorry that the movie is only now being produced since the movie officials and Zo have waited for so long,” said CJ Entertainment, the investment distribution company. “The production company is looking for a replacement.”

“Martial Arts” received investment from China for more than 30 percent of the total production cost of the film, amounting to 20 million dollars (22.6 billion won), said CJ Entertainment.

Zo decided to star on “Martial Arts” right after he was discharged from the army in May 2011. However, shooting was put off due to investment problems.

Zo, who couldn’t wait longer, came back to the small screen recently with SBS drama “That Winter, the Wind Blows.”

“Martial Arts” is a science fiction film set in the future where a man inadvertently visiting a ghost town, “Byulee,” fights against the spiritual force trying to destroy the settlement.

The movie will be directed by Park Kwang-hyun, the director of the movie “Welcome to Dongmakgol” in 2005.
