Some more in Iggi

Well, not much on Iggi, so on JJY^^
Hancinema was later than me in posting those posters, ha! What a feeling!
And this lovely picture on the left comes from a press conference on the movie. JJY said it was tiresome to wear a lot of make-up and characterization, and he probably grew old just because of that.
News Nate 2010-05-07
I'm in the middle of frantic searching for the video of this press conference.
And I'm able to dig up every news I can. My daily ritual to check every website twice. 
For those not sure about what I'm so excited since January:

Iggi (Moss):
Directed by Kang Woo-seok (강우석)

Genre: Thriller
Release Date: 2010-07-15 (?) -  South Korea
Movie remade from a popular internet cartoon. The story of the few people who live in a village, and a man who comes to the village for his father's funeral. He tries to figure out the mystery of his father's death, but the villagers watch his every move.

Ryu Mok-hyeong, a member of a small prayer house located in a remote mountain village, is well-respected for his leadership and gift of speech. In order to build a new prayer house Mok- hyeong leaves the mountains to build a new village with the help of his friend, Yong-duk. Many years pass and Mok-hyeong is discovered dead after sharing a bottle of rice wine with Yong-duk. Mok-hyeong’s good for nothing son, Ryu Hae-guk, arrives from Seoul to attend his father’s funeral. Hae-guk soon realizes that the villagers are trying to hide something from him leading him to seek the help of Park Min-uk, the public prosecutor responsible for his demotion to a local branch during his more reckless past.
