Top Korean actors Jeon Do-youn and Jung Jae-young have finished shooting an upcoming action flick, according to a press release from the film's producer Sidus FHN on Monday.
Sidus announced in a press release that Jeon and Jung, who played the lead roles of Cha Ha-yeon and Tae Gun-ho, respectively, completed filming the movie tentatively titled "Countdown" which will open in local theaters during the latter half of this year.
"Countdown," helmed by Korean auteur Huh Jong-ho, tells the story of Cha Ha-yeon, a female con artist who risks her life for a final deal with cold-hearted debt collector Tae Gun-ho.
"We will show a completely different side to who we are as actors in ‘Countdown,’” both Jeon and Jung were quoted as saying. "We have high expectations for the film and we hope that the audience will enjoy it as well."
Jeon has received over dozens of top recognitions on both the small and big screen since her debut in 1990. She won the award for Best Actress at the Cannes Film Festival in 2007 for her role in director Lee Chang-dong's film "Secret Sunshine."
Jung Jae-young, whose real name is Jeong Ji-hyeon, began his acting career with several small roles in films in the early 1990s and since starred in a score of big hit movies including "The Quiet Family (1998)," "So Cute (2004)," "Welcome to Dongmakgol (2005)" and recently won the Blue Dragon Award for best actor for his role in "Moss."
