Not to be confused with the thriller “The Witness” which released earlier this year starring the excellent Lee Sung-min, director Lee Han’s (“Lovers’ Converto”, “Punch”, “Thread of Lies”) newest film takes a more dramatic approach to the story of a witness to a crime.
Soon-ho is a poor lawyer who takes on the case to defend a suspect in a murder case. While working on the case, Soon-Ho meets Ji-woo, who is the only witness in the murder case and she has autism.
After the lukewarm response to tentpole blockbuster “Illang: The Wolf Brigade”, Jung Woo-sung (“Asura: City of Madness”, “A Moment to Remember”) is back as Soon-ho. This will be his first drama since 2016’s “Remember You”. Fresh from the trials of hell in both the “Along With the Gods” films as well as a critically-appreciated turn in indie hit “Youngju”, Kim Hyang-gi joins Jung Woo-sung as Ji-woo, which might be her most artistically challenging role to date. This is the second time she teams up with director Lee Han after “Thread of Lies”. The film is expected to release in South Korea at some point in February.
