Kim Rae Won Returns to the Big Screen with Superstar

Kim Rae Won finished his military service last Summer and dove right into filming the weepy melodrama Thousand Day Promise. Since finishing that crying fest, he’s since wrapping a movie called Superstar which is about a second-rate self-absorbed musical director who joins a talent show as a mentor. He hopes to use that to gain more directing work, but instead his mentorship of a young child from a mixed ethnic background reignites his own forgotten dreams of pursuing a singing career. Playing against Kim Rae Won is Ji Dae Han, a newcomer who was selected through a nationwide casting call. The cast recently held a press conference to meet the media, and in addition to the two leads, the movie also includes Jo An, Kwang Soo, and Lee Sung Min. The movie sounds like a mix of Billy Elliot and Fame, plus with this cast, it totally means I’m in! That little Ji Dae Han is adorable, rocking the bowl haircut like only a cute kid can.
