Park Joong-hoon debuts as a director

2012/06/03

photo240819.jpg

Actor Park Joong-hoon is personally drawing the intense and cold-hearted industry of entertainment.

Park Joong-hoon set up two leading characters in his scenario for "Top Star". Many are interested in this as it is being written and directed by Park Joong-hoon who has always been a big star in the movie industry.

A movie related official said, "'Top Star' is about the process of a top star falling to the ground and another character who used to be a road manager becoming a top star. As much as Park Joong-hoon has spent the past 30 years as an actor, he is dealing with the story very realistically. He has been working on this scenario for 2 years and recently revealed on his Twitter, "I didn't know it took this long to write a scenario. 27 years of my acting life is advantageous and not for me at this point".

"Top Star" should start filming in the fall and distributed by Lotte Entertainment.

Uhm Tae-woong to play a Top Star on the decline
by javabeans
| February 10, 2013

utw_87.jpg

Will Uhm Tae-woong never rest? The busy actor always seems to be taking on a new project or another, despite the fact that he’s already juggling a packed schedule that includes a new wife and child, on top of his actorly duties. He’s set to appear in a movie titled Top Star, which is perhaps most notable for the fact that it is the directorial debut for Park Joong-hoon—an actor—who also wrote the screenplay.

Hm, another actor branching out into to work behind the camera? We’ve seen some examples of this in the past (such as Yoo Ji-tae and Gu Hye-sun), and maybe Park Joong-hoon drew upon his own crossover aspirations in writing the script, which deals with a manager who dreams of being an actor. When he happens across the opportunity, he takes it and unexpectedly becomes a top star… and then falls right back down. HA. I like the sound of this already.

I can picture the wackiness and the offbeat comedy, which is something I see in Park Joong-hoon’s work already as an actor (he’s one of those movie vets who always gives me the warm fuzzies; his credits include Arrest King, Sunny, Haeundae, My Gangster Boyfriend, Radio Star, and literally dozens more). I can totally see Uhm Tae-woong playing the awkward manager-turned-hot-star, given how he possesses both the charisma needed to become that overnight star and the awkwardness needed to depict a guy who’s not totally equipped to deal with it. Though let’s be honest, I tend to love Uhm Tae-woong in anything, period.

Kim Min-joon (Romance Town, Friend Our Legend) has also joined the cast, though little is available about his role or storyline. Top Star will begin filming in March.

by someday1214

20121220_kimminjoon.jpg

In December, actor Kim Min Joon had announced that he would be taking an indefinite leave from his acting career, but it seems he’ll be taking a break from his leave to return for filming!

The actor will be making a return to his career after a 3 months. On March 14th, Lotte Entertainment announced that he would be appearing in new movie ‘Top Star.’

In December of 2012 he announced his leave from the entertainment scene as he commented, “I’ll be halting my acting activities until I have a reason to act again. I’ve been deliberating over this for the past few months, no, years now, and finally made the decision today.”

However, it turns out he had been cast for this role in ‘Top Star’ one year ago by director Park Jong Hun, and so he decided to fulfill his previous promise by returning to his acting career for this role.

‘Top Star’ is about a star’s manager who meets several problems after working with the star, and will feature Uhm Tae Woong and So Yi Hyun as well.

Are you excited to see the actor’s return?

Actor Park Joong-hoon wrapped up production on his directorial debut "Top Star" with a final shoot in Seoul late last week, film distributor Lotte Entertainment said on Thursday. Filming took three months.

"Directors are important in movie-making, but a film is more than just a director's work. It is not only my movie, but rather it belongs to the entire crew. I'm really grateful to everyone who worked with me on this," said Park.

"I'm sad that shooting has finished. I felt like I wanted this to continue for years," gushed leading man Uhm Tae-woong, who starts off managing the talent and ends up becoming the top talent in the flick. "Of all the pictures I've been involved with, I felt most comfortable on this one, and the atmosphere on-set was amazing."

"Top Star" is a fictional account of Korea's entertainment world and the wealth, extravagance and sometimes harsh realities that riddle the lives of its leading celebrities. The film is scheduled to be released in the latter half of this year.
