JANG Jin turns JANG Dong-gun into president

2009/10/16 Source

Director Jang Jin is a peculiar filmmaker who has a gift for approaching subjects from an alternative angle with a typical Jang Jin style of humour. This time JANG delivers his latest film about three fictitious Korean presidents titled Good Morning President.

The biggest name attached to the project is pan-Asian star Jang Dong-gun who will soon enter the international market outside Asia with the film "The Warrior's Way". "The Warrior's Way" also stars Kate Bosworth and Geoffrey Rush.

Jang Dong-gun will play a young president who is also a single father. Lee Soon-jae's character is JANG's character's predecessor in charge of Korea. Go Doo-shim tackles the role of the first female Korean president. All three struggle to combine the demanding position and private life.

Writer/director Jang Jin's filmography includes films like "Guns and Talks" and "Someone Special", and he wrote the scenario for "Welcome to Dongmakgol". "Good Morning President" is the opening film of the 14th Pusan International Film Festival and will be released in cinemas on 22 October.
