Ryu to star in Joseon costume film
The film, directed by Lee Jong-pil of “Born to Sing” (2013), is based on the real story of famous pansori (traditional narrative song) writer Shin Jae-hyo in the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). The film depicts the behind-the-scenes story of Shin writing a short song for his favorite disciple, Chae-sun.
Bae Suzy from girl group Miss A was confirmed to play Chae-sun. Since the movie marks Suzy’s return to the big screen for the first time in two years after “Architect 101,” which earned her the title of “the nation’s first love,” the public has high expectations.
Ryu is currently filming the thriller “Guest” (working title). “Dorihwaga” will start shooting in the latter half of the year with the aim of opening next year.
