original Korean article can be viewed at http://www.cine21.com/news/view/mag_id/73180 So finally news about Hyukie’s new movie, <The Flu>!
Director Kim Sung Soo, who had been on the top of Korean action films with <Beat> (1997), <There is No Sun> (1998), and <Warrior> (2001), and had a brief turn to romantic comedy with <Please Teach Me English> (2003), has finally come back to the filming site after 10 years. He reunited with Jang Hyuk, who has become much more mature since <Please Teach Me English>, and Soo Ae, who’s been choosing a film after <Athena>, has joined them. They started filming last May, and currently are working on CGs and stuffs, aiming to release the movie this summer. So the basic story plot is like this. There’s this new “flu” going around. It’s so contagious that 34 people per second can get infected, and so deadly that it can make you die in 36 hours. The flu breaks out in Bundang, and 42 thousand people get infected in a day. The government freaks out orders a shut down for the whole city. In-hae (Soo Ae), who’s a doctor, tries to get out of Bundang with her daughter Miru (Park Min-ha), but Miru has sneaked out from home. She meets Ji-goo(Jang Hyuk) and wanders around Bundang, which is quickly turning into a city of death.
There are some more details about the movie in the article, but I wouldn’t want to know too much before watching the movie… So yes, let’s just wait for it to come out, and hope it’s amazing!
