[HanCinema's Film Review] "COLLECTIVE INVENTION" 2015/11/21
Goo (played by Lee Kwang-soo) is a completely unremarkable young man with no apparent distinguishing characteristics whatsoever. At least he was, until Goo's entire upper torso turned into...a fish.

Joo-jin (played by Park Bo-young) is the first person to meet the newly mutated Goo, and takes a step most of the other characters proceed to repeat. She monetizes it,...More

"Everyone thinks I always play the happy roles, but I usually play a single mother, a sad and sick girl and characters like that. I even said I wanted to try a happy character. Then I thought, I could star in a drama to show people what I have and if I do, I would like to play a happy role",...More
