Korea Pair Prepare Superhero Film

Choi, Lee Team on 'Jeon Woo Chi'

By HAN SUNHEE, Variety International

30 April 2008

SEOUL -- Choi Dong-hoon, helmer of last year's breakout hit "Tazza," and producer Lee Eugene ("Voice of a Murderer") have greenlit a superhero action movie that is set to be one of the biggest Korean films of the next year.

Superhero in the pic, tentatively titled "Jeon woo chi," is a cursed Taoist magician released 500 years after his imprisonment in a portrait to cure the evils of the modern age. Choi's script adapts and modernizes an anonymous work from the Chosun Dynasty.

Lee and Choi have assembled a top cast headed by Kang Dong-won ("M"), Lim Su-jeong ("I'm a Cyborg, but That's OK") and Kim Yoon-suk in his first major role since this year's smash hit "The Chaser." He plays a dangerous, evil spirit.

Lee's Zip Cinema is producing on a budget of $10 million; lensing is set to start in August, with a release tentatively skedded for summer 2009.


500 Years Ago in the Chosun Dynasty

The Pipe of the prophecy has fallen into the evil hands of the goblins, propelling the world into a whirlwind of disorder. The ancient Taoist wizards turn to the greatest ascetics of their time, the Master and Hwadam for help in vanquishing the goblins and trust each wizard with one half of the Pipe. Meanwhile, the Master’s rascal student Jeon Woo Chi tricks the king with the art of transformation and creates a fiasco, which makes the three Taoist wizards and Hwadam visit the Master. But the Master has been murdered and his half of the Pipe is missing! By taking his master’s pipe out to the market streets, Jeon Woo Chi has been pushed into a corner, ultimately getting sealed into a painting along with his trusty dog, Chorangyi.

Seoul, 2009 - A Goblin-Catching Wizard Is Now a Legend

For some strange reason, goblins that had been sealed up in the past begin to appear one by one and reek havoc on the world. The three Taoist wizards had been enjoying their years of retirement as a priest, a monk, and a shaman. However, they are now brought together in a search for Hwadam, who is nowhere to be found after going into training over five hundred years ago. After much discussion, the three wizards seek a certain picture scroll in display at the museum. They unseal it and call forth Jeon Woo Chi and Chorangyi. Being offered freedom in return for catching the goblins, Jeon Woo Chi sets out on his task. What began as a hunt for goblins slowly turns into Jeon Woo Chi’s personal sightseeing expedition of the modern day world. To top it off, he meets a woman with the same face as the one that had captivated him so many centuries back. He begins his adventure and the quest for Seo In-kyung, his new, yet old love. When Hwadam finally appears in front of the wizards because of Jeon Woo Chi, it is only to reveal where he has hidden the other half of the prophesized Pipe.

Here comes the main attractions !!

Movie is inspired by a Korean novel 전우치전(田禹治傳).

Character from that novel set in Chosun era but 500 years later.

Movie genre is fantasy action, fighting with 妖怪, etc.

Dong-won Kang & Su-jeong Lim to star in Action / Fantasy piece “Jeon Woo-chi” (Story of Jeon Woo-chi)

Actor Dong-won Kang and actress Su-jeong Lim have signed on to star in a new action/fantasy film “Jeon Woo-chi” (literal title “Story of Jeon Woo-chi”). The film will be directed by Dong-hun Choi ( Tazza: The High Rollers & The Big Swindle ). Other actors cast in the film are Yun-seok Kim (The Chaser) and familiar acting vet Hae-jin Yu.

In the film, Dong-won Kang plays main character Jeon Woo-chi. His character was born over 500 years ago, but became imprisoned in a portrait. To break free and walk the earth again he makes a pact to capture the “manpaseokjeok” (a musical instrument that gives magical powers), before rival Hwa-dam (Yun-seok Kim) is able to do so. Meanwhile, it seems Jeon Woo-chi is more of a lover than a hero and he becomes enraptured with In-kyeong Seo (Su-jeong Lim), a budding actress and possibly someone he loved many centuries ago.

“Jeon Woo-chi Jeon” begins filming in August.

Director CHOI Dong-hoon, who made a splash in the local film industry with his high stakes thrillers, The Big Swindle (2004) and Tazza: The High Rollers(2006), is currently in pre-production on his latest project, tentatively titled Jeon Woo Chi.

The story begins in the Chosun Dynasty in 1509 and involves a trio of Taoist wizards, a magician named Jeon Woo Chi (GANG) and his dog, a corrupt king, evil goblins, and a prophetic pipe everyone is after. Jumpingahead to the year 2009, the wizards are called out of peaceful retirement as goblins start appearing in modern Korea to wreak havoc all around. The trio call on Jeon who has been trapped in a painting for 500 years in order to save the day. Yet, Jeon, a kind of anti-superhero, is more interested in sight-seeing and romance.
