Ha Jung Woo, Yoo Da In and Jung Man Sik have been cast to star in Kakao M’s first original film, Night Trip (literal title).
According to Starnews, Yoo Da In and Jung Man Sik have confirmed their appearances in Night Trip. Night Trip is a mystery thriller about what happens when a detective finds out that the case he is in charge of strangely resembles stories from a best-selling book. The film will triple the tension by depicting a story in which a detective, a best-selling author and the victim’s gangster brother chase after the victim’s missing wife.
The Shepherd director Kim Jin Hwang will be directing the film, and SANAI Pictures will be in charge of production.
Earlier, it has been confirmed that Ha Jung Woo has been cast for the role of detective who tracks down the truth behind the case. Yoo Da In plays the role of the missing wife, who became the prime suspect of her husband’s murder. Jung Man Sik will star in the film as the dead husband’s gangster brother.
Night Trip is drawing keen attention from inside and outside the film industry in that it is Kakao M’s first original film. This is mainly because this project is Kakao M’s first official step after acquiring SANAI Pictures. Kakao M aims to release Night Trip on Kakao TV but is also considering theater release to some extent.
Night Trip plans to complete its casting and begin filming in mid-January.
