Hwang Jung Min To Make First Drama Comeback In 8 Years

Feb 19, 2020
by C. Hong


Actor Hwang Jung Min will be starring in his first drama in eight years!


On February 20, KeyEast Entertainment stated, “Hwang Jung Min will be playing the lead role of Han Joon Hyuk in the upcoming JTBC drama ‘Hush’ (working title), which KeyEast is producing.”


“Hush” is an office drama about newspaper reporters and their everyday struggles, problems, and ethical dilemmas. It is based on the novel “Silence Warning” (literal title).


Hwang Jung Min’s character, Han Joon Hyuk, is described as a veteran reporter who chose his job because he wanted to build a more just world. He has cycled through various newspaper departments but still thinks about the gap between justice and reality.


Park Sung Hye, the CEO of KeyEast, said, “This is a project that we’ve been working affectionately on for a long time, so we are honored that Hwang Jung Min, so famous in the film world, has chosen it. We will do our best to make a production worthy of such a great actor.”


Hwang Jung Min, who debuted in 1994, boasts an impressive filmography, including “Ode to My Father,” “Veteran,” “The Himalayas,” “A Violent Prosecutor,” and “The Wailing.” He has starred in over 30 movies, but has only appeared in two dramas: 2019’s “The Accidental Couple” and 2012’s “Korean Peninsula.”


“Hush” is expected to premiere sometime in the second half of 2020. They are still in the process of casting lead and supporting actors.


Previously, Hwang Jung Min was said to be in talks for another drama from the director of the film “The Spy Gone North.” The actor is currently preparing to film the movie “Negotiation” (literal title), from director Im Soon Rye.

Productions stalled, theaters empty due to virus: Shoots abroad have been put on hold as countries ban Koreans from entering


Source: INSIDE Korea JoongAng Daily


The film industry is struggling due to the ongoing spread of the coronavirus. Many people are avoiding theaters and production teams have faced troubles while shooting movies as some countries ban travelers from Korea. [NEWS1]

With more countries blocking the entry of visitors coming from Korea, some movie production companies can’t go overseas to film scenes needed for upcoming movies. Blocked entry to Jordan has been the greatest hurdle for the team that’s making the movie tentatively called “Negotiation,” starring actor Hyun Bin and Hwang Jung-min.


The movie is being directed by Yim Soon-rye and has 10 billion won ($8.2 million) worth of investment.


The day after the Jordan government announced its decision to block entries from Korea to prevent the spread of coronavirus earlier this week, the production team started discussions on what to do next. The movie is about rescuing a Korean who’s kidnapped in the Middle East. Hwang plays a diplomat while Hyun Bin plays a national security agent, and filming was supposed to start in Jordan in March.


An official with the film’s distribution company Megabox Plus M said the announcement came while some members of the production team were checking out locations for filming the movie. The team is now not only going to check if they can reschedule the filming date but also inspect other possible filming sites in different countries.


Jordan first captured the eyes of TV fans in Korea when tvN introduced the country for the first time in a local TV drama with its hit “Misaeng: The Incomplete” in 2014. Its exotic scenes put the country on the map as a location for a number of Korean TV shows and films.


With the hurdles the team has faced, the production team for another movie tentatively called “Kidnap” that takes place in the Middle East is also getting nervous. The movie is scheduled to film in Morocco next month.


The film tells the story of a diplomat being kidnapped in Beirut, Lebanon, in 1986, and it stars actors Ha Jung-woo and Ju Ji-hoon. Morocco has yet to ban anyone from coming into the country, yet the team is nervous because the situation can change at any time if more cases of coronavirus are reported. The film’s distribution company Showbox said it is carefully checking the situation as shooting is supposed to begin at the end of next month.


An official with the Korea Film Council said the banning of entering the country due to the reason of quarantine is unheard of when the purpose of visiting is to film.


Filming sites throughout Korea are also taking extra precautions to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Studios have set up machines that check the body temperature outside of their entrances to check everyone in and out, and staff have been instructed to wear masks to keep anyone from getting sick.


“If an actor or staff contracts the virus, the site will come to a stop and production costs will go up dramatically, so everyone is very sensitive,” said an official with the Busan Film Commission.


According to the Korea Film Council, the number of theatergoers dropped more than 50 percent last weekend from the weekend before. About 470,000 people visited cinemas last weekend, while about 1.2 million people did so in the weekend before. Many movies have delayed their openings, and screenings have been canceled.


The opening of “Time to Hunt,” which was scheduled to open yesterday, has been delayed, and the premiere date of animated movie “Onward” has been pushed to April. Many screenings and press conferences have been moved online or gotten canceled. Many art movie theaters have closed, and an independent movie expert said there is no outlet for independent movies to be seen at the moment, even if there are movies ready to be screened.
