It sure feels like forever waiting for the movie to be out, but the wait is almost over for Phantom Detective (formerly known as Detective Hong Gil-dong). The movie is finally set for May release, after a year of post-production since the filming wrapped up in April last year. All eyes are on the project after Lee Je-hoon’s successful drama Signal aired earlier this year, and this will be his first movie after his completion of military service.
Back in July, Lee Je-hoon has confirmed to make his comeback on the silver screen together with the director of A Werewolf Boy, Jo Sung-hee in Detective Hong Gil-dong. The film was said to start shooting in November, but it was pushed back to December, with one of the reasons being Lee Je-hoon’s drama shooting schedule for Secret Door. Since the hero’s schedule is finally free, there’s nothing holding them back from filming and we got the first batch of stills featuring the titular Hong Gil-dong today!
