Kim Sang-kyung has been cast in the male leading role. It will be Kim's third film with Hong after "On the Occasion of Remembering the Turning Gate" in 2002, and "Tale of Cinema" in 2005. Kim also worked with directors like Bong Joon-ho ("Memories of Murder") and Kim Ji-hoon ("May 18").

Hong's latest feature film "Like You Know It All" was invited by Festival de Cannes. Hong's films are conveted by film festivals around the world. He garnered acclaim from his first films "The Day a Pig Fell Into the Well" and "The Power of Kangwon Province" on.
