The cast lineup for director Park Chan Wook’s new movie Determination to Part Ways (literal title) has been confirmed.
According to a media outlet, Lee Jung Hyun joined the upcoming movie Determination to Part Ways, directed by Park Chan Wook, finalizing the major casting. The movie tells the story of a detective investigating the case of a man losing his footing in the woods and what happens when he begins to question the man’s wife.
Earlier, Park Hae Il confirmed his appearance as a detective, while Tang Wei took on the role of the wife of a man who died in the woods. Park Yong Woo will star as a key figure related to Tang Wei, and Go Kyung Pyo will play Park Hae Il’s junior partner. This is the first time for all four actors to work with director Park Chan Wook. Lee Jung Hyun joined the project as Park Hae Il’s wife, reuniting with Park Chan Wook after 9 years since the film Night Fishing.
Determination to Part Ways is the first Korean film by director Park Chan Wook in four years since The Handmaiden. After filming the British television drama series The Little Drummer Girl, he pushed for the long-prepared film The Ax. However, when several issues, including investments, surfaced, Park Chan Wook started preparing for Determination to Part Ways.
Determination to Part Ways is in the midst of last-minute pre-production work to start filming in October.
