Sleep is a thriller about a wife discovering the truth about her husband, who has a rare sleep disorder. It will be the first commercial film of the newly renowned independent film director, Yoo Jae Sun. Lewis Pictures, the production company that made director Bong Joon Ho’s Okja and filmmaker Kim Ji Woon’s Illang: The Wolf Brigade will present the new movie.
In Sleep, Lee Sun Kyun will play Hyun Soo, Soo Jin’s husband. After enduring long obscurity, Hyun Soo finally sees the light of day. Earlier, Jung Yu Mi announced her big-screen comeback as Soo Jin. It is said that Lee chose the movie because of his trust in Jung Yu Mi.
Lee is one of the busiest actors in Korean cinema right now. He’s currently waiting for the release of three movies: Byun Sung Hyun’s Kingmaker: The Fox of the Election, black comedy Killing Romance, and disaster movie Silence. Moreover, he has already finished filming the Apple TV series Dr. Brain and will soon start working on Choo Chang Min’s new film, The Land of Happiness.
Meanwhile, Sleep will begin filming early next year after finalizing the full cast.
