Kim Bum, an actor and model best known for his role in “Boys Over Flowers,” has been cast in the main role of the film “Detective Dee: The Prequel,” directed by Hark Tsui famous for his “Once Upon A Time In China (Wong Fei-hung)” series.
The entertainment agency representing Kim said Thursday that Kim has been selected as the main character in Hark Tsui’s new movie along with Chinese actors Fung Shiufung and Lin Gengxin(Kenny), Hong Kong actress Angela Baby and Taiwanese actor Mark Chao.
“I thought that I may never get another chance to work with director Tsui. As happy as I am for such an opportunity, I am eager to put all my efforts into this film,” said Kim in a press release.
Shooting for the film has begun in Hengdian World Studios in China and Kim will join the staff late this month after he finishes shooting his upcoming film “Miracle.”
