FilMart: Showbox Styles Yoo Ha’s ‘Gangnam Blues’ for Pre-Sales Debut

MUMBAI – Fast-rising Korean TV star Lee Min-ho will make his feature film debut as the lead in noir action thriller “Gangnam Blues.” Mini-conglomerate Showbox will launch pre-sales at next week’s FilMart convention and rights market.

“Gangnam” is the long-gestating project of veteran director Yoo Ha (“Spirit of Jeet Keun Do,” “A Dirty Carnival”.)

Set in the Korean suburb of Gangnam in the 1970s – long before it became the ultra-hip district worthy of pop singer Psy’s recent mockery – the film features a young man caught in a collision between political powers and gangsters backed by unscrupulous real estate magnates. Kim Rae-won plays the man’s best friend, who finds himself on the opposite side of the argument.

Lee is the star of popular TV series “City Hunter” and “The Heirs.”

“Gangnam” is produced by m.o.vera pictures and backed by Showbox/Mediaplex. It starts production in April and is planned to hit theaters in winter 2014.
