Kim Yun-seok revealed that he had actually directed before, although it was just a single part of an omnibus stage play. He stated that this did not really feel like a debut for him.
Kim Yun-seok also cited Ha Jung-woo as inspiration for him making the jump from actor to director. Since making his debut as a director with "Chronicle of a Blood Merchant" in 2015, Ha Jung-woo has been making more of an effort to be involved in the production side of film development.
"Underage" is a drama about a family that gets wrapped up in turmoil. It is currently scheduled for release in South Korean theaters sometime in April.
