LIM Pil-seong's "Flower of Evil" Project

2009/02/10 Source

Director Yim Pil-sung is known for films that tread on the fragile threshold of human psychology, often plunging into depths of horror and fantasy. His latest project is no exception. To be presented at the upcoming Hong Kong Asia Film Financing Forum (March 23 -25), The Flower of Evil delves into the dark side of sexuality.

Budgeted at US $5 million, and described as a horror-suspense-drama, the project, while set in Seoul, will feature an American in the male lead role and both English and Korean dialogue. Casting has yet to take place.

The story revolves around David, an American business exec heading the Korean office of a multinational company. Conservative and happily married with kids, he never-the-less falls for In-hwa, a beautiful, young Korean woman whose double nature drives him into obsession and madness.

The project is to be produced by Barunson Film Division which handled LIM's previous feature "Hansel and Gretel" (2007), as well as Kim Jee-woon's "The Good, the Bad, the Weird" and Bong Joon-ho's upcoming "Mother - 2009".

LIM debuted with "Antarctic Journal" (2005) which won the Best Asian Film Award at the Sitges Fantastic Film Festival in 2005. His second feature, "Hansel and Gretel", was invited to a number of international film festivals including the Sitges, Vancouver, and London Film Festivals.
