Film pairs vets Gong Hyo-jin, Lee Byung-hun


Actor Lee Byung-hun is set to star in the new film “Single Rider” (working title) alongside actress Kong Hyo-jin and entertainer An So-hee, formerly a member of the K-pop group Wonder Girls.

The production crew announced the news on Thursday, and shooting is expected to begin Monday. The film revolves around a man who disappears after a nationwide scandal.

“Single Rider” is the debut film of director Lee Ju-yeong.

Lee Byung-hun will play the protagonist Jae-hoon, who is the impetus for an event that brings chaos to the whole country.

Kong will play Su-jin, a former violinist who lives in Australia with her son. Singer An will feature as a hard-working student on a work-holiday visa in Australia who has yet to return to Korea.

The trio of stars reportedly expressed excitement over their casting and collaboration. Veteran Kong and Lee have appeared in a number of films over their careers, but up until now, they have never appeared together on the silver screen.

“I am well aware of Lee’s acting capabilities,” Kong said. “This is something I am looking forward to.”

The movie is scheduled to hit theaters in the second half of the year.
