|MAY 19 ("Hwaryeohan hyuga")
Several Korean films in the past have directly or indirectly portrayed the Kwangju Massacre of May 19, 1980 when many civilian demonstrators were killed by troops sent by the government. Among these films are Jang Sun-woo's A Petal, Lee Chang-dong's Peppermint Candy and Im Sang-soo's An Old Garden, but this new film will focus more closely on the actual events leading up to May 19. The film will focus on a character named Min-woo, played by Kim Sang-kyung (Turning Gate, Memories of Murder), who becomes part of a citizen militia formed to protect demonstrators against government troops. Other well-known actors starring in this film include veteran Ahn Sung-ki, teen idol Lee Jun-ki (King and the Clown), Lee Yo-won (Take Care of My Cat), Song Jae-ho (Memories of Murder) and Na Moon-hee (You Are My Sunshine). Produced by Kihweck-shidae, it will be directed by Kim Ji-hoon, who made his debut with comedy Mokpo, Gangster's Paradise.
CJ Entertainment will distribute.
