HA Jeong-woo in Korea-Japan co-production

Ha Jung-woo will star together with the Japanese actor Satoshi Tsumabuki in a film tentatively titled "Boat". Kim Young-nam is at the helm of the project and Aya Watanabe writes the scenario.

HA and Tsumabuki will portray smugglers who work together while they are based at each side of the East Sea. Complications arise when they receive the order to kidnap a Korean woman together.

HA commanded attention with his role in Yoon Jong-bin's "The Unforgiven" (Yongseo Batji Mothan Ja). He extended his name internationally with Gina Kim's "Never Forever" (Doobeonjjae Sarang). With his latest film "The Chaser" (Choogyeokja) he also scored a major box office hit.

KIM directed the film "Don't Look Back" (Nae Cheongchunaegae Goham) which was invited by the Locarno International Film Festival for its 2006 international competition section where it received the FIPRESCI and NETPAC awards. His debut film Outcry of Youth was selected for KOFIC's 2005 Production Support Program for International Co-productions. Outcry of Youth was also a Korea-Japan co-production.

Tsumabuki is known for his role in Josee, the Tiger and the Fish. Watanabe is also responsible for the scenarios of La Maison de Himiko and Josee, the Tiger and the Fish.

Kraze Pictures (Korea) and IMJ Entertainment (Japan) share an equal financial share in the production which is scheduled for a release in 2009.
