KIM Rae-won stirs up Insa-dong

2008/09/18 | Permalink | Source

After two years, Kim Rae-won returns to the big screen with the film "Insadong Scandal". Insadong (officially Insa-dong gil (street)) is a famous street in Northern Seoul which attracts a wide variety of domestic and international tourists, traditional food and tea lovers, and art connoisseurs.

KIM is cast to play Korea's leading art restaurateur, a highly skilled and intelligent but cold person. The plot deals with a conspiracy to let a famous Joseon era painting disappear.The film is rumoured to bring non-mainstream art to the public's attention.

"Insadong Scandal" will start filming in October. All the attention is centred around KIM's casting and return to the silver screen without information about the director or other cast members.

KIM revealed that he is thankful for being able to tackle a different kind of character again in "Insadong Scandal". KIM's latest film "Sunflower" was released in 2006. KIM played a young man who tries to come clean with his criminal years and out-of-control youth. "Sunflower" and "Mister Socrates" were a break from his previous roles in romantic youth dramas like "...ing" and "My Little Bride". During his two year break from cinema, he starred in the popular television drama "Gourmet".
