Copied this from LBH DC.. seems that filming of "The Insiders" may have started.. perhaps the scenes without the main cast. Thanks to mistymorning for the translated fan-description.
Somebody rang the door early in the morning, saying he's a movie staff, - I thought what a crook - but he said they're filming in the back of the house so it might become somewhat noisy, and gave this mug.
The left is the title of the movie "Insiders" on the right is LBH's signature, with a 'Thank you' note.

This is interesting  news. I mean Baek Yoon Sik been cast in upcoming drama Nodame Cantabile that schedule to be air this October. I thought his schedule will be free before they filming. So if the script reading started, the movie filming will start soon.
Lucky this movie setting is in current era. Not saguek or period or anything like that. Now I wonder if his scenes will be finish filming before he start for the drama or he will do double duty here.

^ Filming probably take two months tops.. or even less. The actors all have tight schedules themselves, especially towards end of the year with MOTS etc. The early and short filming duration for 'The Insiders'.. one of the reasons LBH was able to take on the movie.

Lee El to play Lee Byung-heon’s love in Insiders by awcoconuts http://www.dramabeans.com/2014/07/lee-el-to-play-lee-byung-heons-love-in-insiders/

leel_20.jpg
Congrats to Lee El (birth name: Kim Ji-hyun) for scoring the part of love interest to veteran actor Lee Byung-heon in the upcoming movie Insiders. The actress has had smaller parts in dramas (Mother’s Garden, Level 7 Civil Servant) and movies (Masquerade, Pacemaker), but this was a coveted role and is a significant step forward for her career.
Insiders is an adaptation of the eponymous webtoon by popular writer and manhwa artist Yoon Tae-ho (Misaeng, Moss), and will be directed by Woo Min-ho (Spies). Lee El will play an elegant goddess-type madame to Lee Byung-heon’s gangster, who is basically a lackey for corrupt politicians. The male Lee signed on to the political thriller early, as did Jo Seung-woo (God’s Gift – 14 Days), who will step into the shoes of a passionate investigator in the film.
When Lee Byung-heon is betrayed by the officials he serves, he, with the help of Lee El, will set out to exact revenge. This could be a breakthrough role for the actress, and though I’ll admit to not recollecting her in her previous roles, I already knew I’d be watching for the two male leads, and she’s certainly maintaining, if not elevating, the level of pretty among the cast — what can I say, I’m easy to please (and fickle like that). Fingers crossed she wows us in this high-profile opportunity.
Insiders will begin shooting in mid-July.

The makers of forthcoming thriller “The Insiders” have released a set of still images from the film. The movie will star Lee Byung Hun, who will play the role of a gangster seeking revenge. The screenplay was based on an Internet comic series of the same name, and is set in a seedy underworld rife with corruption and double-dealing.

BUSAN: Showbox Readies 2015 Leap Into China
Patrick Frater Asia Bureau Chief Nemo Kim @nemokim VARIETY.com
Showbox, one of Korea’s major film groups, is planning to expand its presence in China with the establishment of a Chinese division in early 2015.
“Showbox China will be set up next year and take part in one or two Chinese film productions per year,” said CEO Yoo Jeong-hun at the Showbox Carnival party on Saturday in Busan.
The Chinese unit is expected to produce and develop content squarely-aimed at the China market. These may be Chinese remakes of Korean titles, films that are co-productions, or projects that are pitched to Showbox in Seoul, but do not go forward as Korean movies.
“The target market for these is mainland China, Greater China perhaps, and we will see what potential they have for any other markets. They need to recoup in China,” Chris Jung, Showbox VP, told Variety.
“We are taking a very project-oriented approach, with a strong emphasis on the development process, it is not about having big, fancy offices in Beijing,” said Jung.
The pictures’ below the line budgets will initially be “small or medium,” according to Jung, but the final cost will depend on the level of Chinese stars attached. A small number of staff is expected to relocate from Seoul to Beijing.
And while he says that the projects are not conceived as vehicles for K-pop stars to enter the China market, in contrast directors may be Korean or Chinese, depending on the project. “We have some Showbox directors who are China-ready, others who are not,” he said.
“Financing and production partners will be decided on a per project basis, clearly we want to participate in the financing,” said Jung. “But we are going to need to find a distribution partner. That is not something we can do on our own.”
Showbox and leading Chinese group Huayi previously co-operated in 2012 when Huayi boarded and co-financed Showbox’s $22 million “Mr. Go,” a fantasy sports drama with a large VFX component. Huayi enjoyed box office of $17.6 in China by pitching it as a children’s film. Showbox pitched the film at a different demographic and struggled with it in Korea, where it earned only $8.6 million.
China represents a significant opportunity for all the major Korean entertainment firms. At home they are increasingly limited by the size of the market – including an anti-monopoly probe – which creates an imperative on overseas expansion if companies are to continue growing. At the same time, Korean film and music stars are riding high in China, and Korean TV series have become major attractions for online platforms including Youku Tudou and iQiyi. Korea’s biggest entertainment player CJ Entertainment, backed by its food-to-fertilizer corporate parent, has already begun a concerted effort to break into the Chinese film scene.
In addition to the China announcement Saturday night, Showbox also unveiled its distribution slate for next year. Of the 11 features introduced, six are actioners, including “Assassination” from director Choi Dong-hoon featuring Gianna Jun (“My Sassy Girl”, TV sensation “My Love From the Stars”) and other cast from his previous “Thieves”; “Inside Men,” starring Lee Byung-hun (“G.I. Joe” “Terminator: Genisys”) and “Detective K: Detective K: Secret of the Lost Island.”
