Ha Ji Won returns to the big screen as the ‘daughter’ of national father Sung Dong Il
Korean drama ‘Pawn’ promises to bring viewers a humorous, meaningful and emotional story when it hits theaters.
‘Pawn’ is a story about a “strange” family set in 1993 in Incheon. Du Seok (Sung Dong Il) and Jong Bae (Kim Hiewon) are two guys specializing in debt collection with blood. To threaten a debtor, the two kept Seung Yi (Park Soi) – a 9-year-old girl as collateral for her mother’s debt.
However, Seung Yi’s mother was expelled, and the two uncles took the responsibility of watching over her until Seung Yi was adopted by a rich and kind family. When they discovered that little Seung Yi was sold to work for an irresponsible boss, Du Seok and Jong Bae came to redeem her. Although Seung Yi was originally a “debt lump” Du Seok and Jong Bae did not want, she gradually became beloved and the three lived together as a family.
‘Pawn’ is the second film directed by Kang Dae Kyu after Harmony (2010) – a touching story about the choir of female prisoners in a prison. Famous for his work that stirred the hearts of audiences, director Kang promised to bring the Department of Petrochemicals a lot of pure laughter and emotional tears about the family story of “rooster raising children.”
The drama marks the return of actress Ha Ji Won as an adult Seung Yi. Meanwhile, “national father” Sung Dong Il played the role of her reluctant father – an outsider who seems fierce but always loves “daughter” with all his heart. Besides, the other father Jong Bae is also played by Kim Hiewon – a veteran Korean actor.
How would a child be brought up by two fathers who are filthy rent collectors, “seem” unkind? And what will she think when she grows up, knows her father’s identity and work nature? The department of pet debt probably does not tell much about Seung Yi’s post-adulthood period, but will make the audience curious because his father is special when raising a child that is not related by blood.
In addition, the Department of Pet Debt is also the second-screen re-export of child actress Park Soi in Vietnam this year. Before that, she transformed into the daughter of assassin In Nam (Hwang Jung Min) in the film with the highest box office in Korea by 2020 – Deliver Us From Evil.
Instead of the image of a fearful and quiet girl due to psychological phobia, the child actress revealed her ability to act as a child, full of confidence in the role of Park Soi, promising to be a future talent of screen of Kim Chi.
‘Pawn’ is scheduled to premiere on October 9, 2020.
