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.
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.
