Film Business Asia reports that production is "some 40% through" on the epic war movie "My Way" from acclaimed director Kang Je-gyu ("Shiri", "Taegukgi"). The publication describes Kang as "one of the trailblazing directors of Korean cinema's modern revival".

Topstarring are Korea's Jang Dong-gun, Japan's Joe Odagiri and China's Fan Bingbing.

Budgeted at 30 billion won, "My Way" is based on a true story set during World War II and is scheduled for release in December.

In a recent interview with the JoongAng Daily, the director was asked as to what drew him to the story. He replied:  "An ordinary man is thrown against his will into a tumultuous period of history and it seems like he would be overwhelmed – but he survives. I really wanted to investigate what saved him from his painful personal history, things like his dreams and his strong instinct to survive".

Kang Je-gyu also mentioned that his return to the war genre was motivated by his hope that "my film will change people's mindset about war".
