However, now the Boys over Flowers actress has announced the official cast and also why did she choose them.
This will not be the first time Hye Sun will direct a movie, though. The actress has directed several short films early into her career. Moreover, she has launched a book, which was a best seller in South Korea. What is it she cannot do?

Im Ji Kyu and Ku Hye Sun go way back. Im Ji Kyu played the male lead in Hye Sun’s first directorial debut film, Magic, in 2010. So, it’s no surprise that Im Ji Kyu is also in her upcoming movie. After getting cast in Dark Yellow, Im Ji Kyu also shared a statement via his agency.

Dark Yellow Release Date and Plot
Dark Yellow does not a release date at the moment. However, now that the cast is finalized, we can expect the filming to begin soon. If we were to determine the release date, the audience can expect Dark Yellow to release at the beginning of next year.
Dark Yellow will narrate the story of a woman who works in a yellow flower shop. However, out of nowhere, a strange man starts taking an interest in her and starts invading her private space. The story will follow the events of how the woman will face after finding the invader. The details of the plot were first available on her IG account. And it clearly indicates that it is a horror melodrama. The movie will pinpoint women’s fears around “power” in a physical sense and not of an abstract sense.
As the film is a crowdfunding project, the supporter will get gifts in return for their support. Ku Hye Sun’s agency has informed earlier that supporters will receive exclusive behind the scene clips, products from the set, and also a chance to attend the screening.
