The film The Day I Died (literal title), which drew attention as Kim Hye Soo’s big-screen comeback project, confirmed its release in November.
Warner Bros. Korea unveiled the first poster of The Day I Died and announced its release in November. The Day I Died is a story about a girl who disappeared to the edge of a cliff with only one suicide note left, a detective who traces the case, and a witness who saw the girl last. The meeting between veteran actresses Kim Hye Soo and Lee Jung Eun, and rookie actress Noh Jung Eui is raising the expectations.
The released poster catches the eyes with Hyun Soo (Kim Hye Soo), a detective who is looking for traces of a girl who disappeared in the forest. The fact that her eyes are cut out of the frame makes it impossible to read her expression fully, raising questions of what she is facing and how she feels. Also, the copy “For me to live” ironically goes hand in hand with the title “The Day I Died,” drawing keen attention.
Kim Hye Soo plays detective Hyun Soo who tracks the girl who disappeared, while Parasite star Lee Jung Eun takes on the role of Soon Chun, the last witness to see the girl alive. Roh Jeong Eui, who has grown from a child actor to a next-generation actor, plays Se Jin, the missing girl, and many actors with diverse personalities and charms, including Kim Sun Young, Lee Sang Yeob, and Moon Jung Hee, will enrich the film.
Meanwhile, The Day I Died is a feature debut film of Park Ji Wan, who won the Grand Prize at the 10th International Women’s Film Festival in Seoul with her film High School Girls.
