It is announced that Jang Hyuk has been cast the leading man in Sung Yuri’s upcoming debut movie “Rabbit and Lizard” (temporary named) and both of them will play as lovers in this film.
In the movie, Jang Hyuk will play as a cabbie Eun Seol, who is down with a rare heart disease, that is, his heartbeat may stop at any moment. Eun Seol is an inflexible and introvert character but he is also gentle and broad-minded at the same time. In his journey to assist May (Sung Yuri) in discovering her true identity, he also gradually realizes his self-value in this world.
From my understanding of Jang Hyuk’s role, I foresee this to be a melodramatic movie with possibly a sad ending. I mean once you cast a lead with such a role (may pass away anytime), it is likely you will get a sad ending. Despite this possibility, I’m sure their journey towards the end will be beautiful and touching. The film is directed by renowned director Joo Ji Hong and will begin the shoot this month.
