EXID’s Hani Is Trapped In Virtual-Reality Horror Game In Upcoming Sci-Fi Series “SF8”

 

Upcoming sci-fi series “SF8” has unveiled its first glimpse of EXID’s Hani in character!

 

“SF8” is a new sci-fi project that will tell eight intriguing stories set in the near future. Each 40-minute story will be helmed by a different Directors Guild of Korea (DGK) director, and each of the eight directors’ visions of the future will offer a different take on the main theme of people dreaming of a perfect society through technological advancements. The subjects tackled in the project will include artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), robots, gaming, fantasy, horror, superpowers, and disasters.

 

EXID’s Hani will be starring in director Jang Cheol Soo’s “White Crow,” an unsettling story about a broadcasting jockey (BJ) named Juno is famous for her delicate and innocent image. When Juno (played by Hani) appears on a live VR game show, she soon finds herself trapped inside a terrifying VR horror game that incorporates players’ real-life traumas. 

 

The newly released stills of Hani capture two different sides of her character, as well as the stark contrast between her world inside and outside the game. In one photo, she smiles brightly on stage; in the other, she stares fearfully at something in the distance, her eyes visibly filled with dread.

 

Hani commented, “I was extremely drawn to the near-future setting and the premise of being trapped in a virtual reality. In order to prepare for my role as a game BJ, I tried playing horror games in real life.”

She went on, “Because there is a lot of CGI [computer-generated imagery] in this project, I got to experience many new things. I’m grateful for having been given the opportunity to take on a new challenge each and every day.”

**********************************************************

 

The exclusive pre-release of the original Cinematic drama 'SF8' ahead of airing on TV 

Wavve will release its original Cinematic drama series "SF8" on Thursday.

 

SF8 is the nation's first film and drama crossover project invested by Wavve and produced by the Korean Film Directors' Association (DGK) and MBC.

 

The way the eight filmmakers produce episodes of each drama is unique, but the distribution method, which is exclusively pre-released on an online platform prior to TV broadcasting, is also unconventional. 

 

SF8 is scheduled to air on MBC sometime in August after the exclusive pre-release on Wavve. You can see on Wavve the director's version of the original work that you can't see anywhere else.

 

SF8 is an eight-part drama about people who dream of a complete society with new technologies against the backdrop of the near future. Through various materials such as artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), robots and games, it will provide viewers with fresh shock and new experiences.

 

The SF8 features eight film directors, each from proven talent to emerging expectations. The cast is also splendid. Star actors such as Moon So-ri, Lee Dong-hwi, Lee Yeon-hee, Lee Yoo-young, Ye Soo-jung, Yeom Hye-ran, Ko Kyung-pyo, Uee, Choi Si-won, Choi Sung-eun, Kim Bo-ra, Hani and Lee Si-young participated in the project.

 

In addition, SF8 has received an official invitation to the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFAN) on the 9th and held a special exhibition, drawing keen attention from both inside and outside the industry.

 

"We hope that users can enjoy the novelty through Wavve's experimental original content," said Lee Tae-hyun, CEO of Content Wavve. "Wavve will continue to show good original content while working with various content companies such as broadcasters, independent producers, film companies and entertainment companies."

Set in the near future, “SF8” tells the story of people who dream of a perfect society through technological advancements. This project is a Korean original sci-fi anthology series about an array of subjects including artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), robots, gaming, fantasy, horror, superpowers, and disasters.

 

The eight Directors Guild of Korea (DGK) directors participating in this project include Kim Eui Deok, Roh Deok, Min Kyu Dong, Ahn Gooc Jin, Oh Ki Hwan, Lee Yoon Jung, Jang Cheol Soo, and Han Ka Ram. Each director will present a 40-minute project for “SF8.”

 

First off, Kim Bo Ra and Choi Sung Eun will appear in director Lee Yoon Jung’s queer youth story “Astronaut Joan” (literal title), which takes place during a fine dust disaster. In the beginning of the teaser, the two characters are happily running somewhere. However, things take a dark change as they struggle to breathe inside astronaut helmets.

 

 

Lee Yeon Hee and Lee Dong Hwi will appear in director Roh Deok’s “Whole Body” (literal title). The caption reads that there is a future forecasting app with 96% accuracy called “Manshin.” Lee Yeon Hee seems to be searching for something, and Lee Dong Hwi questions why she’s looking for that particular object.

 

 

Lee Si Young and Ha Joon are set to appear in director Han Ka Ram’s fierce female action film “Blink” (literal title). The teaser shows that she is the only one who is able to see a mysterious young man who turns out to be an AI. He asks, “Aren’t you curious to see what kind of abilities I have?”

 

Spoiler

 

 

 

Lee Yoo Young, Ye Soo Jung, Yeom Hye Ran, and Yoon Kyung Ho will tell the story of a world run by robots in director Min Kyu Dong’s “Nursing” (literal title). In this particular place, one person must die if one person is to live. Lee Yoo Young, who plays a nurse robot with no feelings, asks, “If the patient has to die for the guardian to live, then can robots pray as well?”

 

Spoiler

 

 

“SF8” will be exclusively pre-released on the OTT platform wavve on July 10, and it will be available on MBC in mid-August.

 

Which story are you looking forward to the most?

Lee Yeon Hee has shown off an impressive transformation for her new role in “SF8”!

 

MBC’s “SF8” is a sci-fi crossover project that tells the story of people in the near future who dream of a perfect society through technological advancements. Eight Directors Guild of Korea (DGK) directors have created 40-minute projects that tackle an array of subjects including artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), robots, gaming, fantasy, horror, superpowers, and disasters.

Lee Yeon Hee stars alongside Lee Dong Hwi in director Roh Deok’s “Whole Body” (literal title). She plays Sun Ho, a character who tries her best to search for hidden secrets.

 

In the stills for her upcoming role, Lee Yeon Hee coolly sits atop a motorcycle before being taken away by cops, sporting bleached hair for the first time in her life and showing a completely different side than her usual image.

Lee Yeon Hee commented, “I wanted to try a character who lives in their own world and freely expresses their thoughts. In that regard, ‘Whole Body’ is a project where I got to have new experiences so I had a lot of fun filming.”

 

In her recent drama “The Game: Towards Zero,” from action to romance scenes, Lee Yeon Hee has demonstrated the wide range of her acting and there’s high anticipation for how she’ll portray this role.

“SF8” will be pre-released on the OTT platform wavve on July 10 and will air on MBC this August. Watch the teasers here!

  • Guest changed the title to [Upcoming Drama 2020] SF8, 에스 에프 에잇 - Choi Siwon, Hani, Lee Yeon Hee, Lee Dong Hwi - Premieres on August 14th

 

Before the first episode of "SF8" will air on the 14th of next month, all the cast members will decorate the cover story of "Cine21"

 

MBC unveiled a pleasant photo shoot for eight directors, ranging from director Min Kyu-dong to director Han Ga-ram, ahead of its premiere of the crossover project "SF8" on Aug. 14.

"SF8" is a Korean version of the original SF-and-Solar series produced by Soofilm, joined by MBC, the Korean Film Directors' Association (DGK) and Wavve. Director Kim Eui-seok, No Deok, Min Gyu-dong, Ahn Guk-jin, Oh Ki-hwan, Lee Yoon-jung, Jang Cheol-soo, Han Ga-ram (Kana Nada-soon), and cast Kim Bo-ra, Moon So-ri, Shin So-yul, Ahn Hee-yeon, Uee, Lee Da-weet, Lee Dong-hwi, Lee Yeon-hee, Lee Yoo-young, Ye-jung, Choi Sung-won, Choi Sung-won and Choi Si-won are the most notable this year.

 

"SF8" has already been well received in both the film industry and the broadcasting industry, with its pre-release on the OTT service platform "Wavse" and all of its works invited to the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival. The directors, who have led the production site, went on a special shoot ahead of the release of the work on July 7. They were the cover model of the movie magazine Cine21.

Film industry talent and rising directors, such as Kim Eui-seok, No-duk, Min Kyu-jong, Ahn Guk-jin, Oh Ki-hwan, Lee Yoon-jung, Jang Chul-soo, and Han Ga-ram (in Korean order), not only have black and white dress codes but also perfect makeup, and heated up the filming site as much as models do.

 

Director Oh Ki-hwan, who showed off his unusual fashion sense with his unusual white suit, led the atmosphere by showing off his pleasant talk throughout the filming, while directors Lee Yoon-jung, Noh Deok and Han Ga-ram talked about the movie and talked about each other's recent events. Director Kim Eui-seok, who was particularly awkward with his dress-up look, received an OK from the filming crew in a model-like pose and received applause on the spot. On the other hand, director Ahn Guk-jin proved the aspect of director, who changed his suit and coached other directors' filming as soon as the filming was over, and director Min Kyu-dong continued his serious conversation with director Sun and Hu-bae throughout the filming and interview that lasted more than five hours, showing a special affection for his work as a general creator.
