Myung Film announced the crank in of "Everglow" in the backdrop of Jeju Island starring Go Doo-shim and Ji Hyun-woo on the 4th. "Everglow", helmed by director So Joon-moon is about Jeju's greatest female diver, Jin-ok, and a documentary producer named Kyeong-hoon who comes from Seoul to film her.
Go Doo-shim plays Jin-ok and Ji Hyun-woo plays documentary producer Kyeong-hoon. Jin-ok is a character who's experienced the painful history of Jeju Island in person and Go Doo-shim is raising anticipation for the character as she is an actress true to her reputation and also known as 'the daughter of Jeju', her homeland.
In addition, Ji Hyun-woo, who has made impressive performances in several dramas such as "Old Miss Diary - Drama", "Merry Mary", "Queen In-hyun's Man" and more since his debut in 2003, as well as being involved in band activities, will be co-starring with Go Doo-shim.
Director So Joon-moon, who majored in directing, was recognized for his directing skills for "Old Lang Sign", which was invited to the international competition section of the 31st Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival in 2007. Released in 2011, "●REC" was acclaimed as a visual surprise and emotional newcomer. Expectations are high on whether the Jeju film will be completed as a well-made film.
Looking forward to the first take, Go Doo-shim said, "The people of Jeju have the minds of a diver and they are proud of it. So I am grateful to be in this movie and I want to make it as beautiful as I possibly can". Ji Hyun-woo said, "Like the line 'The important things are not visible' from "The Little Prince", I hope this movie can be good for the heart".
In addition to being selected as the production support for the Korean Film Council in 2019, "Everglow" won the grand prize in a scenario contest to revitalize Jeju's location in 2019. It is scheduled to finish filming by June.
