Korean mystery film Single Rider is poised to set the world ablaze with a superstar cast and an exhilarating story. Screen Daily reports that the film debut of director Lee Zoo-young has already won a deal with Korean independent sales house, M-Line Distribution.
Single Rider follows Jae-Hoon, a branch manager of an investment firm who send his wife, Soo-jin, and his son to Australia. Soon he suspects his wife of adultery and begins to follow her. All hell breaks lose when a shocking truth unfolds.
Korean superstar Lee Byung-hun takes on the role of Jae-hoon. Many know Lee for his critically acclaimed roles in I Saw The Devil, Masquerade and Inside Men among others. This year, he played knife-wielding assassin Billy Rocks in the big blockbuster Hollywood remake of The Magnificent Seven.
Soo-Jin will be played by the beautiful Gong Hyo-jin. Gong is best known for her roles in the films Crush And Blush as well as Boomerang Family. She hasn’t appeared on the silver screen since early 2013 so fans are doubly excited to catch her in Single Rider.
An So-hee, a former member of the K-pop group Wonder Girls, plays a supporting role. Recently, An So-hee played Jin-hee, the high school cheerleader in the zombie hit Train to Busan.
Lee Byung-hun, Gong Hyo-jin and An So-hee are reportedly excited over their collaboration on such a thrilling film. “I am well aware of Lee’s acting capabilities. This is something I am looking forward to.” Gong said in Korean JoongAng Daily.
Single Rider is produced by Warner Brothers – who just recently ventured into local Korean productions in Korea.
Shot in Australia, Single Rider is a uniquely intense Korean film that is sure to titillate its audiences. Currently in post-production, the movie is set for a theatrical release in spring 2017.
