Actor Ha Jung-woo has written a comedy about passengers on a plane who survive a violent storm during a flight.

Ha will also direct the movie, which as of yet has no official title, marking his first foray behind the camera.

It will be released in the second half of 2013.

"I've wanted to study more about film for quite a while, so I'm seizing on this opportunity to don the director's cap rather than act," he said through his agency on Thursday.
