Actor Yoo Ji-tae has started filming his first feature film, according to the pic's promoter on Monday.
A press release by Film Marketing Camp said on Monday that Yoo's full-length film "Sansevieria" (translated title) cranked in at Korea's Gyeonggi Province on January 26
The first shoot was of the movie's main female character who will be played by actress So Yoo-jin, opposite actor Bae Soo-bin.
So will take on the role of a woman who has been isolated and Bae a man who too has been left alone in the world with nowhere to go and nobody to lean on.

His short film "Invitation," which he wrote, directed, produced and starred in, was screened at the Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia in 2009 and his pics "How Does the Blind Dream" and "The Bike Boy" won awards at the Busan International Film Festival.
