Korean/Japanese Screen Adaption 'White Night' in Production

2009/10/01 Source

There has been an increasing amount of Japanese Korean cinematic business happening of late and new adaption of novel "White Night" adds another notch to the belt. Written by novelist Higashino Keigo the original dark tale of two children who commit murder through self defense was also made into a successful Japanese TV drama. The Korean movie stars actors Son Ye-jin ("My Wife Got Married" 2008) and marks the return of heart throb Go Soo after serving in the army. In addition, playing the pursuing detective is Korean stalwart actor Han Suk-kyu, who, starring in "Shiri" (1999) and "The Scarlet Letter" (2004) should be no stranger to Japanese and Korean audiences alike.

The screen play has been completed by busy TV writer Park Yeon-seon who has written other adaptations and also comedy for the big screen. Joining Park's first foray into dark cinematic territory is feature-film first timer Park Shin-woo-I who is in the director's seat. "White Night" is being distributed by CJ Entertainment and a release date has not been set.
