Kim Ji Hoon’s new film Sinkhole will be released on August 11th.
On Monday, Showbox announced the premiere date of Sinkhole. Sinkhole begins when a man’s house, which took him 11 years to obtain, falls into a sinkhole in a minute. The Tower director Kim Ji Hoon helmed the production, and Cha Seung Won, Kim Sung Kyun, Lee Kwang Soo, and Kim Hye Jun took the lead.
Alongside Lotte Entertainment’s Escape from Mogadishu, Sinkhole is ready to take over the Korean cinema in August.
The first photo, which shows a huge sinkhole in the middle of downtown Seoul, creates tension with its overwhelming size. The giant hole that swallowed everything and the crowded surrounding area stimulates curiosity about the story that’s to come.
Also, the rest of the released photos capture the sense of urgency that the characters experience. How will they survive this unprecedented crisis?
Man Soo, played by Cha Seung Won, is a “nosy” man who works three jobs for his only son. Dong Won, played by Kim Sung Kyun, falls in deep shock when a sinkhole swallows up the home he worked so hard to obtain. On top of that, Kim Seung Hyun (Lee Kwang Soo) and Eun Joo (Kim Hye Jun) also ended up getting stuck in the sinkhole when they visited Dong Won’s house.
Director Kim shared, “I tried to paint out the situation in which ordinary people suddenly fall into a disaster. So I thought a lot about how I could show the people coping with disaster rather than the disaster itself.”
