Seoul-based sales company Finecut has picked up music-themed drama One Step, starring K-pop singer Sandara Park, Han Jae-seok and Cho Dong-in.
Juhn Jaihong, whose credits include Poongsan and Beautiful, is directing the film with Kim Sujin (The Great Queen Seondoek) as music director.
Park, a member of K-pop band 2NE1, plays a woman who has lost her memories and suffers from synesthesia following a car accident. While dreaming, she hears a song which could be the key to her forgotten past.
Han plays a composer who offers to help her identify the song she is hearing, while Cho plays a rock guitarist who is secretly in love with her.
Park’s previous acting roles include 2015 web drama Dr Ian, for which she won best actress at the first KWeb Festival. Han is a TV actor who gained popularity through hit shows including All About Love and Taiwanese production Amor De Tapapaca. Cho won best actor in China’s Asian Youth International Film Festival for his role in The Stone.
The film is produced by Korea’s MCC Entertainment, which specialises in music-related content. Finecut will introduce the film to buyers at Hong Kong Filmart (March 14-17).
