Kiss Burn – directed by Jeon Go-woon, is about a girl’s cheeky revenge against her friend’s patriarchal father.
Walking at Night – directed by Kim Jong-kwan, shines light on a couple’s innermost feelings during their dreamlike rendezvous.
Bae Doona (Sense8, Kingdom) and Park Hae-soo (Prison Playbook) are also expected to appear in the film series along with Lee Sung-wook, Shim Dal-gi, and Jung Jun Won. Singer-songwriter Yoon Jong-shin’s Mystic Entertainment is producing the anthology with Yoon serving as its executive producer.
IU is not only known for her hit songs like Dreaming, Good Day, Twenty-three, Palette and BBIBBI but she also had gained recognition through her dramatic roles in many Korean drama series such as Dream High, The Producers, Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo and My Mister.
