Rain and Shin Se Kyung have been chosen for the lead roles in an upcoming blockbuster, “Red Scarf.”
Directed by Kim Dong Won, the film is said to be costing $10 million USD in production expenses alone. With tensions rising due to the recent Yeonpyeong Island skirmish, there’s been increasing focus on this film since it features a story about attacking Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea.
A representative of the movie’s investment company revealed to Newsen on December 6th, “Rain personally chose ‘Red Scarf’ as his last project before entering his military service. The leading female role will be played by Shin Se Kyung.”
The film is currently nicknamed the “Lee Mi Kyung Project” due to the amount of time and effort the CJ Entertainment CEO is putting into it.
Rain will be playing the role of ‘Taehoon,’ a fighter pilot, while Shin Se Kyung plays his love interest ‘Sae Young,’ an auto mechanic.
Another representative of the movie revealed, “Rain has completed his contract, but Shin Se Kyung has yet to sign her contract due to issues such as guarantees. The title of the movie could also be changed to ‘Living in the Sky.‘”
The filming process should begin as early as January 2011.
