Gorgeous First Poster For Jang Joon-hwan's HWAYI

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
It has been a full decade now since Korean director Jang Joon-hwan made his feature debut with cult favorite Save The Green Planet. Jang has been quiet in the years since, turning out one notable short amidst a string of false starts on other feature projects but despite the intensely loyal cult around Green Planet the film's financial failure at the Korean box office has stymied his chances of making a second feature until now.

Jang has just begun principal photography on Hwayi, the story of a teenaged boy raised by five criminals to become the perfect killer. Yeo Jin-goo stars along with Cho Jin-woong, Jang Hyun-sung, Kim Sung-kyun and Park Hae-joon. And while no stills have been released as of yet there is now a strikingly evocative first piece of poster art.

Given that we are very much part of the Save The Green Planet cult here you can expect us to keep a close eye on this one.

    Wonderful news, STGP is still my favorite Korean film and i was always saddened by the fact that such a talented director couldn't get another feature length project off the ground. Well, at least he got married to Moon So-ri in the meantime. :)

    There have actually been 2 pics released. And this poster was released a while back. I keep up too often on Korean films, but yeah. You guys should post them. Plus, on a side note, everyone can watch Park Chan-wook and Chan-kyong's Day Trip for free on the Kolon Sports page on Youtube. I'd post about that! :)

  • We posted Day Trip a while back, actually, and if you've got a link to the Hwayi pics, I'd love to see em!

    Oh my God... it said it didn't accept the 1st post. My apologies. The CGV links are a tad higher res.
