“I was fascinated by this character and wanted to take on the role, even if I had to readjust my schedule. In order to depict this character as accurately as possible, I plan to watch other documentaries and study more about the Korean War,” the actor told the production studio.

She will be starring alongside Korean actor Kim Myung-min who will play the role of task force commander Lee Myung-heum. The cast is expected to start filming the movie in October and it is expected to be released in theaters next year.
