Shim Eun-kyung to star in new thrillerActress Shim Eun-kyung of the Korean comedy “Miss Granny” was cast in the new movie “Waiting For You” (tentative title), according to local reports yesterday.
The new thriller follows a group of people pursuing a serial killer. Shim will reportedly play Hee-joo, who has waited 15 years to catch the killer.
Hee-joo, who lost her father when she was only 7 years old, plans for revenge as she waits for the killer to be released from jail.
Since the 19-year-old Shim starred in “Miss Granny,” which grabbed more than eight million views earlier this year, industry insiders were eyeing on what her next work would be. It seems like Shim has decided to undertake a more serious and radical role.
“Waiting For You” will start filming in August.
