"Open City" is the feature film directorial debut of Lee Sang-gi who is also responsible for the scenario. The film stars Son Ye-jin as the leader of a pick pocketing gang and Kim Myung-min plays a police detective working on her case. Unaware of each other's identity, the situation becomes more complicated when they meet by accident and feel attracted towards each other, and both are yet unaware of a shared incident from the past.

"Open City" is a stylish crime film set in a modern city with criminals who enjoy the fast life, and includes several clashes between rival gangs, and between criminals and the police. The film juggles fast paced action scenes with romance and drama, often filmed in atmospheric night scenes.

SON plays a headstrong and bold character body guarded and admired by Shim Ji-ho's character. SON's character is equally matched in boldness and stubbornness by KIM's character. The two clash, but KIM's character can't resist SON's advances.

KIM also starred in 2007's "Wide Awake" and several television dramas. SON's filmography includes "The Classic" and "The Art of Seduction". Director LEE was previously assistant director, including for the film "Fighter in the Wind". "Open City" will be released on January 10.
