Korean actress Shin Mina will pair up with actor Park Hae-il in a new film.
An official with Shin’s agency O& Entertainment told TenAsia over the phone on Friday that the actress’s first shoot for the film, tentatively titled “Gyeongju,” will take place in early September but the date of its premiere has not been decided as of yet.
Also, although other media outlets have reported that the film is a road trip film and a melodrama, the official explained that according to the script, it is more of a drama.
Directed by Zhang Lu, the film centers on a man (Park Hae-il) who travels to Gyeongju city in Korea in order to bring up old memories and along the way, he meets a woman (Shin Mina) who owns a tea shop. The two previously starred in thriller pic “A Million” in 2009 as well.
Meanwhile, Shin has wrapped up filming for Korean veteran director Kim Jee-woon’s short film tentatively titled “Hide & Seek,” starring actor Gang Dong-won.
Park will be returning to the big screen for the first time since comedy film “Boomerang Family,” starring Kong Hyo-jin, which opened in the local theaters in May.
