While it is not very common to see South Korean actors dabble in film direction, it is not completely unheard of. Yoo Ji-tae, Ha Jung-woo and lately actress Moon So-ri have all directed films before, to name but three. The latest to follow in their footsteps is Kim Yoon-seok, whose debut film “Another Child” (literal Korean title “Underage”) is ready for release.

Synopsis

Not much is known of the story of the film yet, but it is said to be a family drama that portrays the experiences of A 17-year-old girl and her friend take on the world of abnormal adults in this family drama.

Based on Kim Yoon-seok’s track record as an actor, boasting of films like “The Chaser”, “Tazza: The High Rollers”, “The Yellow Sea”, “Sea Fog” and “Dark Figure of Crime”, the tone of the film in the trailer, which seems to come across as a dramedy and a coming-of-age story, is surprising. Starring Yum Jung-ah (“The Mimic”, “Intimate Strangers”) and Kim So-jin (“The Divine Move”. “Drug King”), Kim Hye-joon (“Herstory”, “Kingdom”) along with Kim Yoon-seok himself, “Another Child” will be released in South Korean cinemas some point in April, 2019.
