WonBin is an Ajusshi for his Next Film Role
October 5th, 2009 // by javabeans
With his successful comeback film (the thriller Mother) still fresh in our minds, the actor has announced his next project: a movie called Ajusshi [아.저.씨], which is the term adult men start being called as they hit their thirties and beyond (although the typical connotation of an ajusshi tends to be the conventional middle-aged man).
He plays a “lonely man who lives as though he’s cut off from the world,” having willingly rejected society. As he meets with a unique woman who opens his heart, the character promises to show a “deep, internal” style to Won Bin’s acting. His co-star has not yet been cast.
Won Bin is still promoting Mother abroad, and will travel to Japan mid-month in time for its premiere there. Ajusshi will enter filming at the end of this year and will aim for a summer 2010 release.

Korean actor Won Bin has decided to take on action as his second choice of genre since making a comeback to the big screen earlier this year with film "Mother", according to a press release on Tuesday.
The film, tentatively titled "Ah-jjeo-sshii", is about a lonely, reclusive man and his relationship with the only girl who opened up to him. Won will play the lead character, producer Opus Pictures said in the statement.
The movie directed by Lee Jeong-beom of "Cruel Winter Blues" will go into shoot at the end of the year and be released next summer.
The 31-year-old actor debuted in 1997 with TV series "Propose" with his breakthrough role coming three years later in KBS drama "Autumn Fairy Tale", in which he co-starred with two other Hallyu stars Song Seung-hun and Song Hye-kyo.
He made his movie debut in "Guns & Talks" in 2001 and has not returned to television since. He last appeared in director Bong Joon-ho's critically acclaimed film "Mother" this year, the first film he took on since completing South Korea's mandatory military service.
