2012/02/12 | 2023 views | Permalink | Source

First in line for "A Frozen Flower" was Jang Dong-gun and not Joo Jin-mo

Went to Daejeon to cast kwon Sang-woo in the movie "Once Upon A Time In High School"

"Howling" manages to succeed in casting number 1

It wasn't easy for "Marriage Is a Crazy Thing", "Once Upon A Time In High School", "A Dirty Carnival" and "A Frozen Flower" director Yoo Ha to find the right cast for his projects.

He appeared in Gong Hyung-jin's SBS Power FM "Gong Hyung-jin's Cinetown" and said "All the casts I had in mind for the movies I wrote the scenario for didn't work out" and started to reveal the casting stories.

"The role Joo Jin-mo played out was actually meant for Jang Dong-gun but Joo Jin-mo was at Jang Dong-gun's house when he asked if he could have it. "A Dirty Carnival" and "Once Upon A Time In Highschool" were also for other actors I had in mind when I wrote the scenario".

He continued, "I pretended to run into kwon Sang-woo to cast him in the movie "One Upon A Time In Highschool" when I actually went down to Daejeon on a rainy day".

He expressed affection as he said, ""Howling" is one of my successful movies which succeeded in casting the actor who is Song Kang-ho that was first on my list".

"Howling" by Yoo Ha is about a promotion-thirsty detective Sang-gil (Song Kang-ho) and rookie detective Eun-yeong (Lee Na-young) who solves the mystery behind the case and track down a murderous wolf-dog. It is a movie based on the Japanese original "Frozen Fangs" by Nonami Asa. To be released on the 16th.
