Belated Release of Cha In-pyo's "Crossing"

Film "Crossing", directed by Kim Tae-gyoon and starring Cha In-pyo, will finally be released four years since it was filmed. This is the first South Korean film to portray the lives of ordinary citizens in North Korea. The film was shot at secret locations in South Korea, China, and Mongolia.

"Crossing" is based on a true story of North Korean refugees who attempted to break into the Spanish embassy in Beijing in 2002. Cha will play the role of the father who had to leave North Korea in search of medicine and food for his family. His eleven-year-old son will be played by child actor Shin Myeong-cheol, who beat out 600 competitors to win the part. The film follows their dangerous search for each other. The makers of "Crossing" will hold a press conference on March 18th to unveil the film for the first time.
