South Korean star of Life in a Day to get his own feature length documentary.

A feature length documentary is currently in production based on Okhwan Yoon, the South Korean star of Kevin Macdonald’s Life in a Day.

Okhwan is a former businessman from Seoul who gave up his professional career to embark on a ten-year long cycling trip through 192 countries.

Slovakian film-maker Marek Mackovic, director and producer, commented: “Okhwan’s story is as jaw-dropping as it is poignant. It’s the ultimate tale of endurance and perseverance.

“There were times when we as the film crew simply couldn’t go on and Okhwan would still have this boundless energy, that was truly an inspiration.”

Okhwan is a Slovak/UK co-production, supported by the Slovak Audiovisual Fund.
