Noh Sang Hyun To Star in ‘Love in the Big City’ Movie Adaptation Along with Kim Go Eun

Megabox’s PLUSM unveiled actors to star in the upcoming ‘Love in the Big City’ film adaptation, now in production.

‘Love in the Big City’ is the English-language debut of Sang Young Park, one of Korea’s most exciting young writers, and depicts the story of a young gay man searching for happiness in the lonely city of Seoul. It was reportedly adapted last year. On July 20th, Megabox’s PLUSM released some photos from its script read-through and introduced the two actors, Noh Sang Hyun from ‘Pachinko’ and Kim Go Eun from ‘Yumi’s Cells’. The film is under the direction of Lee Eon Hee, and filming began on July 8th.

Kim Go Eun will play the role of Jae Hae, a bold yet charming and straightforward person in life and relationships. Meanwhile, Noh Sang Hyun plays the role of Heung Soo, who is not interested in school or women and lives with Jae Hee, who discovers the secret that he kept for so long.

On the other hand, ‘Love in the Big City’ novels are available as e-books and physical copies through any online bookstore. Here’s an overview of the novel, which is an exploration of millennial loneliness as well as the joys of queer life.

Young is a cynical yet fun-loving Korean student who pinballs from home to class to the beds of recent Tinder matches. He and Jaehee, his female best friend and roommate, frequent nearby bars where they push away their anxieties about their love lives, families, and money with rounds of soju and ice-cold Marlboro Reds that they keep in their freezer. Yet over time, even Jaehee leaves Young to settle down, leaving him alone to care for his ailing mother and to find companionship in his relationships with a series of men, including one whose handsomeness is matched by his coldness, and another who might end up being the great love of his life.
