Actor Kim Nam-gil was confirmed on Thursday to take over actor Lee Jung-jae’s main character in the film “Rouge” alongside actress and Cannes Film Festival jury member Jeon Do-yeon.

Kim will play Jae-gon, a police detective in pursuit of a suspected killer. Jeon will play Hye-kyung, the suspect’s lover. Despite the clash, the two cannot help but develop personal feelings for each other.

The movie is set to start filming in June, after Jeon returns from the Cannes Film Festival in France.
