Most Anticipated Korean Films of 2016

14. Pinching the Star
Dir: Seok Min-woo (1st Film)
Cast: Oh Dal-su (Veteran), Yoon Je-moon (Mother, 2009), Lee Kyoung-young (26 Years, 2013)
Production: Daemyung Culture Factory Co.
Distribution: 9ers Entertainment
Filming Dates: 2015-05-09 ~ 2015-07-15
Status: Post-Production
Genre: Drama

Plot: A small-time actor, embarrassed by his low station, pretends to be involved in a film with his college friend, who became a big star.

What to expect: This one’s a bit of a gamble, as the story hardly seems like a slam dunk. That said, debut helmer Seok Min-woo was an assistant director on major films by Park Chan-wook and Kim Jee-woon, and, more importantly, ace supporting star Oh Dal-su is finally the lead in a motion picture, which has got to be worth something.

When can we see it? Comes out in Korea in March.
