Director Lee Ji-won’s family drama film, “Bigwang” (working title) recently wrapped up three months of filming before moving into post-production.

The film tells the story of a celebrity couple whose life is turned upside down after the sudden arrival of a teenage girl named Dong-ju (Kim Sia), who claims to be their daughter. The couple face a family struggle as Dong-ju gets herself into trouble.

Lee, the winner of Best New Director Award at 2019 Baeksang Arts Award, for his debut feature, “Miss Baek,” will craft a more realistic portrayal of family issues. Ryu will play the role of former baseball player Jung-goo, who would do anything to protect his daughter.

Ha will appear as once-famous celebrity Nam-mi who has fallen into obscurity. Revealing that it will be her most dramatic acting transformation, she said, “I loved every moment on the set. I will remember this film for a very long time, and I hope that audiences feel the same way as I do after watching it.”

“Bigwang” will likely hit local theaters in 2022.
