According to many local news reports, actor Park Si-hoo will star in the melodramatic movie “Saranghuae,” which roughly translates into “after love.”
It will be the actor’s first Korean film in two years. His last was “Confession of Murder,” which was released here in 2012.
Park’s new film attracted investment from China and Japan, largely due to Park’s popularity in China.
When he was absent from the Korean entertainment scene, Park pursued acting in China. He appeared in Chinese film “Fragrance” last August. The film opened at 3,800 theaters across China.
The shooting of “Saranghuae” will begin next month in both Korea and China.
Actress Yoon Eun-hye has been cast as Park’s fictional love interest.
Park, 36, attempted to return to the Korean film scene earlier this year but couldn’t because of sour public opinion.
The actor has kept a low profile after he was accused of rape last year by a 22-year-old woman. The charges were later dropped.

Girl group 2NE1 said yesterday that the group would not take part in any end-of-year music festival, even though it released its second studio album in February and stayed on top of many music charts with the title track from the album earlier this year.
“It is an honor for a musician to be invited to a music festival, but we politely declined all the offers because we think it is time for [2NE1] to keep a low profile,” said an official from YG Entertainment.
Park Bom, a member of the girl group, announced her temporary departure from music in June when news came out that she reportedly took illegal prescription drugs four years ago.
“We’re focusing on CL’s debut in the United States these days,” said YG.
CL is the lead vocalist of the four-member group.

Miriam Yeung Chin Wa and Louis Koo Tin Lok reunited in the film DON'T GO BREAKING MY HEART 2 (DAN SUN NAM NUI 2). Goo Jai after telling Chin Wa a secret that no one knew about him went on one knee and proposed. Chin Wa tearfully agreed. Actually Goo Jai after the successful proposal shared a kiss with Chin Wa, but it was cut out. Yesterday the "vanished" kiss scene appeared.
Chin Wa admitted that she rarely made kiss scenes in her film career. Working with Goo Jai this time, she only needed one or two takes before the director accepted it; she also said that at the time the shoot was near its end and everyone was already in character. In addition while working on To Sir (Director Johnnie To Kei Fung)'s film she had to be 140% alert. She was already very familiar with her character's emotions. The film's pace was very fast and she did not have the time to enjoy the scene.
Which one was her favorite kiss? Chin Wa answered without any hesitation, "My son, every time I see her little mouth I couldn't help but kiss him a few times." As for the best kiss with a man, Chin Wa said that of course it was with her husband. Speaking of the kiss scene being cut, Chin Wa and Goo Jai both did not know.
