Korean actress Kim Yunjin [Zion Entertainment]
Lotte Entertainment said in a press release that Kim and Park have been cast for lead roles in the film, playing a mother who has to save her daughter and a son who must protect his mother, respectively.
Kim will portray a character named Chae Yeon-hee, a woman who had been living a fulfilling, love-filled life until she discovers her inner demon and starts to struggle.
This is the second time, since the hit film "Seven Days" in 2007, that the actress will be attempting to save her daughter on the big screen.
"If my character in "Seven Days" was a strong woman who seemed to be able to solve anything, Yeon-hee in 'Confrontation' is a helplessly vulnerable and sensitive character", the actress was quoted as saying. "That is why the extreme circumstances thrown to her broke my heart all the more".
Kim, who grew up in Staten Island, New York, rose to fame in 1999 after starring in Korea's first blockbuster film "Shiri" as a North Korean spy.
In 2004, she became the first South Korean actress to make a breakthrough into the U.S. entertainment industry when she was cast as one of the main characters in the Emmy Award-winning drama "Lost".
"Heartbeat", which started shooting last Friday, will open in theaters later this year.
