Most Anticipated Korean Films of 2016

5. Untitled 18th Hong Sangsoo Film
홍상수 감독의 18번째 신작
Dir: Hong Sangsoo (Our Sunhi, 2013)
Cast: Kim Ju-hyeok (The Servant, 2010)
Production: Jeonwonsa Film Co.
Filming Dates: Fall 2015
Status: Post-Production
Genre: Drama
Plot: Not revealed ahead of filming.

What to expect: As always, no word on what this will be about, but does it really matter? We do know that Kim Ju-hyeok is the lead, an odd choice, but Hong has pulled impressive performances out of unlikely performers in the past and let’s not forget he’s fresh off of Right Now, Wrong Then, MKC’s favorite Korean film of 2015.

When can we see it? Another contender for Cannes, barring that Locarno or Venice, though he might already have a new film by then.
