Actress Lee Na-young will return to the big screen after her marriage to fellow actor Won Bin and the birth of her child in 2015.
The film tells the story of a North Korean women, played by Lee, who abandons her family to defect but is later joined in the South by a resentful son. The motherly role is an unexpected one for Lee, who will begin filming in October. The film is expected to be released sometime in early next year.
Lee was so impressed by the work of the film's director Yun Je-ro that she volunteered to work for free.
The project is Yun's commercial debut, and though he is mostly unknown among the general public, he is a rising star in the industry.
Having studied in France, Yun has made six short films, many of which were invited to international film festivals.
