One of 2006’s major surprises was Kim Seung-Woo turning into… an actor? It seemed like for the last 7-8 years, Kim only fit with comedies, as whenever he tried to distance from that genre, results proved to range from the disappointing to the embarrassing. But then came 2006.
First it was the interesting Drama ? ??? ??? (The Special of My Life), then Hong Sang-Soo’s ??? ?? (Woman on the Beach), and now this. It might have changed its title from ???? ?? (The Face I Miss) to ??, ? ?? ? ?? ??? (The Unbearable Lightness of Loving), but this is still Kim Hae-Gon’s debut film, whose screen play won so much acclaim for most of the last 6-7 years. And when you add Jang Jin-Young of ?? (Blue Swallow) to the mix, then this is bound to turn into quite the interesting film.
Judging by Kim’s past works as a writer and his attitude working, this is likely to be very nasty, hard hitting, heavy on the swearing and (perhaps) on the sex. The script is obviously there, the actors too, now we’ll see how Kim adapts to his new role as director. Release is set for September.
