Actor Park Joong-hoon wrapped up production on his directorial debut "Top Star" with a final shoot in Seoul late last week, film distributor Lotte Entertainment said on Thursday. Filming took three months.
"Directors are important in movie-making, but a film is more than just a director's work. It is not only my movie, but rather it belongs to the entire crew. I'm really grateful to everyone who worked with me on this," said Park.
"I'm sad that shooting has finished. I felt like I wanted this to continue for years," gushed leading man Uhm Tae-woong, who starts off managing the talent and ends up becoming the top talent in the flick. "Of all the pictures I've been involved with, I felt most comfortable on this one, and the atmosphere on-set was amazing."
"Top Star" is a fictional account of Korea's entertainment world and the wealth, extravagance and sometimes harsh realities that riddle the lives of its leading celebrities. The film is scheduled to be released in the latter half of this year.
