Looking for lots of loot

Filmmaker goes on hunt for coin

South Korean helmer-producer Kang Woo-suk threw a party at Bennigan’s Saturday night to support his efforts to raise a $53 million filmmaking fund.

The fund, which will seek investors until the end of this month, is being run in partnership with Shinbo Investment Corp. and has signed on key local power brokers including Studio 2.0 prexy Kim Seung-beom to oversee its operation.

Projects expected to benefit include “Hwang Jin-yi,” a historical epic by Chang Yoon-hyun currently in production that was originally scheduled to feature location shooting in North Korea, as well as the

newly announced “Shin-gijeon,” a $10-million historical epic by helmer Kim Yoo-jin (“Wild Card”) that

will explore the development of rocket-powered artillery during Korea’s Joseon Dynasty.
