Director Jo Chang-ho's melodrama "The Day Before" was released this week. The film stars popular actor Kim Nam-gil who lost 13 kilograms in order to play the role of an escapee prisoner with AIDs. KIM who has recently been seen in the highly successful TV drama "Queen Seon-deok", has already appeared in a myriad of films including "Hand Phone" (2009) and "Public Enemy Returns" (2008). He has a new TV drama "Bad Man" coming out, and will also start his compulsory military service soon.

Playing opposite KIM is Hwang Woo-seul-hye who plays a cafe owner who falls in love with the forlorn convict after taking him in. Hwang Woo-seul-hye herself has played in some of Korea's more prominent recent films including Park Chan-wook's "Thirst" (2009), "Crush and Blush" (2008) and "Speedy Scandal" (2008) which became Korea's most successful comedy ever.

Like "Rough Cut" (2008) director Jang Hoon, who worked under the tutelage of director Kim Ki-duk ("Breath" 2007, "Time" 2006), Jo Chang-ho worked as an assistant director on director Kim's "Bad Guy" (2001). The director also helmed "The Peter Pan Formula" (2005) and "Fantastic Parasuicides" (2007).

The film was released April 1.
