Veteran actress Kim Hye-ja and hallyu star Won Bin will star in a new film directed by Bong Joon-ho, renowned for local blockbuster "The Host".

Titled "Mother - 2009", the film has been cast and shooting will begin this fall, with an early 2009 opening planned.

The plot involves a mother who struggles to clear a false charge against her son, who is involved in a murder case.

Kim will return to the big screen ten years after 1999's "Mayonnaise".

The film marks Won's comeback four years after 2004's "My Brother" and will be his first appearance since being discharged from military service.

Bong is known to be a big fan of Kim, with high praise for her acting, which he thinks touches the hearts of the viewers. Kim has been long dubbed "an ideal type of Korean mother" for focusing on mother roles. Bong has long had his eye on Kim for the role, first expressing his interest in her for it four years ago.
