Netflix has released the trailer for the new film Night in Paradise directed, produced, and written by Park Hoon-jung.
Night in Paradise is a story about a man, targeted by a criminal gang, who meets a woman cornered to a dead end in life. Director Park Hoon-jung, whose works include highly acclaimed noir films such as New World, V.I.P., and The Witch: Part 1. Night in Paradise was the only Korean film to be screened out of competition at the 77th Venice International Film Festival. The cast includes Um Tae-gu, who made his unique presence known in The Age of Shadows and The Great Battle; Jeon Yeo-been, who garnered unanimous praise for her performance in After My Death; and Cha Seoung-won, who transformed himself as an unforgettable villain in Believer.
The trailer is filled with the charismatic sense of presences of Um Tae-gu(“Tae-gu”), Jeon Yeo-been(“Jae-Yeon”), and Cha Seoung-won(“Chief Ma”). Tae-gu, who had no choice but to flee to Jeju Island on the verge of taking the last stance to save his life, meets Jae-Yeon who seems to have her own story to tell. The following scene shows Chief Ma’s brutal appearance whose goal is to ‘settle the bill’ by punishing Tae-gu. Ironically, the sharp emotions exchanged between the three main characters are portrayed in the beautiful scenery of Jeju Island, revealing the dark clouds of fate in front of Tae-gu.
Night in Paradise will release globally on April 9, 2021, only on Netflix.
