Lee Joon-ik's Radio Star wraps up shooting

2006/07/14 | 304 views | Permalink | Source

Director Lee Joon-ik, who made Korean cinematic history with his record-breaking hit film "The King and the Clown", has recently wrapped up shooting for his next film.

"Radio Star" features the acting talents of Ahn Sung-ki and Park Joong-hoon, who previously teamed in the hit films Nowhere To Hide from 1999 and Two Cops in 1994. The comedy about a hard-to-handle rock star and his manager is drawing notice due to the track record of its director, who not only famously directed "The King and the Clown" but also notched a solid hit in 2003 with Once Upon a Time in a Battlefield ("Hwangsanbul") and participated in such box office hits as "Hi, Dharma" (2001) as a producer at his production company Cineworld.

Screenwriter Choi Seok-hwan, who collaborated with LEE on the screenplay of King and Battlefield, is also returning to contribute to this project.

"Radio Star" has been set up as a co-production between Cineworld and AchimPictures, to be distributed locally by Cinema Service and sold internationally by co-investor CJ Entertainment. The film wrapped up three months of shooting on July 8, and is scheduled for a release in the fall season.
