Yeo Jin-goo, Cho Yi-hyun cast in lead roles for 'Ditto' remake
Actors Yeo Jin-goo and Cho Yi-hyun were cast in the remake of “Ditto” (2000), a fantasy romance film originally featuring Yoo Ji-tae and Kim Ha-neul.
Production company Gogo Studio announced Thursday that the filming will begin next month.
“Ditto” is a time-slip romance in which a woman living in 1979 and a man living in 2000 are somehow able to communicate through an old radio. The two realize that they are living in different time periods when they make plans to meet but fail to see each other.
In the remake, Yeo and Cho will play the roles of students named Yong and Mo-nee, living the years 1995 and 2021.
Other actors cast include Kim Hye-yoon, who will take on the role of Yong’s first love Han Sol, Na In-woo, as Mo-nee’s friend Young-ji, and Bae In-hyuk as Yong’s friend Eun-sung.
Director Seo Eun-young, who worked on films “Go Back” (2020) and “Overman” (2016), will take helm of the film.
