~ Synopsis ~

[CJ Ent] A pawnbroker is found murdered and police suspect that he was murdered by an acquaintance. Three people come under suspicion but all of them have perfect alibis. One year later, one of the suspects, the neighborhood woman is found dead and the murder case becomes even more mysterious.

Almost fifteen years pass and the lead inspector reflects on the only case he could not solve in an otherwise successful career. Haunted by a sense of responsibility and guilt that he caused suffering by letting the murder case go unsolved, he decides to reinvestigate. His persistent search brings attention to the long forgotten case and reveals a hidden relationship between the victim’s son and the neighborhood woman’s daughter. As their love grows, more crimes happen. As their sin grows, the inspector’s chase comes closer to them.

[KOFIC] A pawnbroker is found murdered in a remote town in a derelict building. Three people come under suspicion but all of them have perfect alibis and the investigation comes to a standstill. Almost fifteen years pass and the lead inspector decides to reinvestigate. Fifteen years earlier, the victim’s son killed his father to save his beloved from being raped by him. And the girl killed her mother when she found out the boy had killed his father. For fifteen years, the boy has been eliminating anyone that tries to interfere with her life. He exists as a shadow, requiring nothing from her in return. She knows what he has done for her sake but looks away from it. As their love grows, more crimes happen. As their sin grows, the inspector’s chase comes closer to them.

~ Director ~

PARK Shin-woo

PARK’s short film GOLDFISH won the Sonje Award at Pusan International Film Festival in 2004 and another short ABOUT A BAD BOY received the Jury’s Special Award at Mise-en-scene Short Film Festival in 2005. With these two award-winning shorts, he’s become one of the most anticipated directors in Korea and his debut feature WHITE NIGHT will prove our expectation for his talent was never too high.


~ Cast & Characters ~

HAN Seok-kyu as Dong-soo

15 years ago, he lost his son at a crime scene by digging too deep into a murder case. Since then, he’s been a reluctant detective and his work no longer has much meaning. One day a man who was involved in the past murder case gets killed. Dong-soo suddenly remembers Yo-han, the son of the past victim. He sees Yo-han as an important suspect and tracks him down, but as his miserable past is revealed, Dong-soo can’t help but feel sympathy for Yo-han.

SON Ye-jin as Mi-ho

Mi-ho seems to have everything in every perfect way, but no one knows that she’s ‘a daughter of a murderer.’ While she struggles to bury her past and start a new life, she meets and falls in love with Seong-jo who owns a conglomerate. Now she dreams of a better future with him, but a gloomy shadow keeps haunting her.

GO Soo as Yo-han

Since his father’s death, he has been living a low life estranged from his family. He makes a living working at a sex bar. He brutally kills anyone curious about his past. No hope can be found in his deep and cold-hearted eyes that stare into the emptiness while he suffers from incurable pain and loneliness.

PARK Sung-woong as Seong-jo

Lee Min-Jung [이민정], Cha Hwa-Yeon [차화연], Park Sung-Woong [박성웅], Lim Ji-Kyu [임지규], Ha Ye-Won [한예원]

I watched the Japanese drama a while back. It was quite an attention grabber because of it's dark storyline, however I did not find it enjoyable to watch. But PARK YEON SEON!!! Just when I was wondering what she is doing at the moment... :) Hopefully she will work on another drama after this...

Not at all chingu !! I am glad the Male Lead is finally announced !!

The angelz back at KoSoo's thread should be more than thrilled ^^

The original Japanese Version was adapted from Keigo Higashino( who was Winner of Mystery Writers of Japan for Himitsu/TheSecret) 's 1999 suspense novel.

I supposed the genre of this upcoming movie will also be of 'Thriller / Suspense' not forgetting a little splash of romance ?

By the way, kindly do make some small changes on his name ie. to Ko Soo please ?? Much appreciated !!

EDIT : Thanx for making the change !!

Byakuyako is a big hit Japanese TV drama which has won several major awards in 2006 including 48th Television Drama Academy Awards: Best Drama; 48th Television Drama Academy Awards: Best Actor: Yamada Takayuki; 48th Television Drama Academy Awards: Best Supporting: Actress: Ayase Haruka;48th Television Drama Academy Awards: Best Supporting Actor: Takeda Tetsuya

The original novel which has sold over 1.2 million copies since its release in 1999 and has become the top bestselling suspense novel.

I look forward to see the Korean movie version of this Japanese TV drama. Yamada is one of the most famous actors in Japan, since I have already seen this TV drama and at the same time being a big fan of Ko Soo, I am glad that he has been chosen to take up the role of Kirihara Ryoji which is a challenging role for Ko Soo...

Fighting !
