Hyun-jin’s upbeat and unexpected romance Moral Sense (WT)
Netflix has confirmed production Carter and Moral Sense (WT), the first self-produced Korean films by the leading streaming entertainment service.
The Netflix Film Carter is a chase thriller about an agent suffering from memory loss and thrown into the middle of a mysterious mission. Carter is helmed by director Jung Byung-gil, whose skilled hand has produced many unique action films. Director Jung got the spotlight with his feature debut Action Boys, which earned him a seat at the 27th Vancouver International Film Festival as well as other prominent events. Since then, his 2012 film Confession of Murder earned him the Best New Director award at the 50th Grand Bell Awards and the Thriller Award at the 31st Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival. His 2017 film The Villainess was selected for Midnight Screenings at the 70th Cannes International Film Festival, raising his profile among international filmmakers. Carter, his collaboration with Netflix, is expected to present a cathartic experience for viewers with high-quality, difficult to execute, nonstop action scenes.
The Netflix Film Moral Sense (WT) depicts a different kind of romance between a man with unusual tastes in sex and a woman who inadvertently learns about them. It is based on the hit webtoon by the same name, which has the main character under the humorous and suspenseful premise of hiding his unusual sexual proclivities from his colleagues. Veteran romance director Park Hyun-jin will lead the production with her keen insight and experience in the genre. Her films include Like for Likes, which weaves romance into the trend of sharing one’s daily life on social media, and Lovers of Six Years, a realistic portrayal of a longtime couple. She is expected to unleash her full command of genre-specific knowledge in an unfolding thrilling romantic development between a man with a secret he doesn’t want to reveal to anyone and a woman who discovers it.
Carter and Moral Sense (WT) will bring a new kind of viewing pleasure to audiences worldwide. The two films will be released exclusively on Netflix.
