South Korean heartthrob Song Joong-ki’s new crime movie Hwaran – meaning disaster or chaos – started shooting on Sept 13 at a site in Gwangmyeong, Gyeonggi Province, according to the film’s distributor Megabox Joongang Plus M.
Directed by Kim Chang-hoon, the film revolves around Yun-kyu, who wants to escape from his everyday struggles. One day, Yun-kyu meets a crime organisation’s underboss Chi-gun (Song) and becomes involved in risky situations.
“I am glad to be part of the Hwaran project, and I also have mixed feelings about this new film as it is a challenge for me. I am excited to be at the filming site with passionate actors and director,” Song said in a statement.
Rookie actor Hong Sa-bin, who has left a strong impression in a number of short films, including On Leave directed by Kim Kun-hwi and Save Me directed by Ku Ji-yoon, plays Yun-kyu.
Solo K-pop artiste BiBi, who kicked off her acting career last year in horror movie Whispering Corridors 6: The Humming, directed by Lee Mi-young, stars as Yun-kyu's sister. – The Korea Herald/Asia News Network
