[Video] Choi Jin Hyuk Stars in a Short Piece Directed by Jung Woo Sung
Top actors Jung Woo Sung and Choi Jin Hyuk have met not as costars, but as director and actor.
Choi Jin Hyuk recently starred in a short piece directed by Jung Woo Sung, titled Beginning of a Dream.
The piece is part of a brand film project, the ′Samsung Galaxy S4 - Story of Me and S4,′ headed by Samsung and its Galaxy S4 smartphone brand. It is Jung Woo Sung′s second short film, following his first, 4 Love, which recorded 1.8 million views on YouTube.
The scenario came from a consumer contest and is about how modern-day workers dream of leaving this world and entering a world of fantasy. Jung Woo Sung dramatized and directed the piece.
Choi Jin Hyuk appears as an ordinary worker named Kim Jun Su, who dreams up a fantasy land of his own.
In his fantasy, which first approaches him in the form of a blue fish, Kim Jun Su rides a sports car that runs at supersonic speed, sees a boy floating past on a balloon with more fish, enjoys his time with a hippie band and meets his younger self.
This meeting at the end came from Jung Woo Sung′s original idea.
An official who worked with the project commented, "The teamwork between director Jung Woo Sung and main actor Choi Jin Hyuk, who are also seniors and juniors as actors, was the best. Director Jung Woo Sung is known to be very kind on set, and his synergy with Choi Jin Hyuk′s quickness, concentration and ability to understand and express his character perfectly, made the piece even better."
In the meantime, Jung Woo Sung has been marking a success on the big screen with his film Cold Eyes, which recently passed the 5 million mark, and Choi Jin Hyuk will soon return to the small screen with the drama The Heirs.
