Writer and director Shin Su-Won’s GLASS GARDEN became the subject of a micro-controversy last week when its appearance as the opening night film at the 22nd Busan International Film Festival was leaked.
The film stars The Throne‘s Moon Geun-Young as Jae-Yeon, a researcher in the field of artificial blood who ignores the world and to shut herself away in a glass house. Disgraced novelist Ji-Hoon (Kim Tae-Hoon, A Quiet Dream) discovers her and uses it as inspiration for his next novel.
Prior to the mystery fantasy, Shin’s previous films include Madonna and Passerby #3. It makes its World Premiere at Busan, before opening in South Korea in October 2017.
Two posters were released this week that indicate a magical realism element to the film. You can check them out below.
