Park Chan-wook fans need only wait a few more months for his new film, the excellent-looking Stoker, and that should be enough for anyone with the proper interest. And, yet, FilmSmash (via Twitch) have uncovered news of something a little different; being a South Korean production, also something more familiar. Most of the information only comes by way of photos and an oblique teaser — which isn’t at all bad, in fairness — except to say he has a project called Day Trip, a second collaboration (the first being Night Fishing) with his brother, Park Chan-kyung.
The shots are fairly non-descript, showing Song Kang-ho — Park’s star in Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Lady Vengeance, and Thirst — wearing a bad wig, playing “a stubborn teacher [with] his female student (Jeon Hyo-jeong) who go to the mountain for vocal training.” Odd, and the absurd / wonderful wig on his head, doesn’t do much to alleviate questions which now surround the project. Nonetheless, I can’t wait to see what comes of this.
Here’s a teaser:
