The upcoming film will revolve around the son of a high-ranking official in North Korea committing a series of murders, leading South and North Korean police to chase after him. Jang’s role has not yet been disclosed.
“Jang, who recently came back to Korea after shooting for a drama in China, decided to work with filmmaker Park Hoon-jung,” said a source from the movie industry. “Once the audition for casting for new celebrities has been completed, the shooting for the movie will begin,” which is expected for October.
