Actors Kwak Si-yang and Jo Yoon-seo will star in the occult horror film, “Three Evil Island” (working title), directed by Chae Ki-jun, according to film distributor The Content On.

“Lovers of the Red Sky” (2021) star Kwak will play Japanese journalist Matsuda Ryuhei, who accompanies Chae So-yeon (Jo Yoon-seo), a TV producer who specializes in investigating pseudo-religions.

“Three Evil Islands” (working title) tells the story of the investigative reporting team where So-yeon works to discover the truth of a pseudo-religion that is believed to have disappeared during the Japanese colonial era, and their encounter with the existence of evil.

Jo, who played Kang-bin, Crown Prince So Hyeon’s wife, in “The Night Owl” (2022), is trying out a new genre with her role as So-yeon.

The film began shooting recently and its release date remains unconfirmed, according to The Contents On.
