"Rough Cut" Ready for September Release

Director JANG Hun, a new protégé of maverick auteur Kim Ki-duk, will see his feature debut "Rough Cut" released locally this September 11th. The US$ 1.5 million action-drama (Korean title: "A Movie is a Movie"), is the second film, not directed by KIM, to be produced by his production company Kim Ki-duk Film.

"Rough Cut" explores the slippery line between reality and fiction in film. It tells the story of an actor, Soo-ta, who begins to identify too well with the gangster role he is playing, disrupting the shoot. He ends up bringing a real gangster into the cast, Kang-pae, who has thespian ambitions – but the two strike a deal to use real violence during the action scenes instead of staged fights.

Soo-ta will be played by Kang Ji-hwan (from Sin Dong-il's "Host and Guest") while So Ji-sub (from TV series "Sorry, I Love You") plays Kang-pae. Korean sales company Showbox Mediaplex has picked the film up. It is distributed locally by Studio 2.0. A trailer for the film was recently released.

Earlier this year another KIM protégé, Juhn Jai-hong released his feature debut, "Beautiful", after screening it at the Berlin and Deauville film festivals. JANG worked on several of KIM's films including "Time", "The Bow" and "Samaritan Girl" ("Samaria"). He also served on the commercial production "Love So Divine", a romantic-comedy starring Ha Ji-won.
