One of my illustrious picks for world’s best director, Park Chan-Wook, has, according to Dramabeans, started shooting a new screwball comedy called Scarlet Blush:

And now [Chan-Wook and actress Gong Hyo Jin] join together in Park’s newest film: “an unconventional comedy film made by unconventional people,” Hongdangmu, or loosely, Scarlet Blush (Gong Hyo Jin’s character is an unpleasant sort whose face is always flushed red). Gong’s character tries to deter the attentions of a man who harbors a one-sided affection toward her (actor Lee Jong Hyuk of A Dirty Carnival, Green Rose, Crazy in Love), and enters into a wary alliance full of ulterior motives with his loner daughter in order to ward him off.

Billed as a provocative screwball comedy, the film began filming on the 6th and is based on a multi-award-winning short film, How Is It, Whatever It Is, by director Lee Kyung Mi in her debut directorial project.

The film is planned for release sometime in the first half of 2008.

While Chan-Wook’s last film, I’m a Cyborg, But That’s OK was a little on the tepid side (yet more deserving of Virginia Tech comparisons than the media scapegoat, his Oldboy), this also pushes back his long-promised vampire “melodrama” and his sci-fi collaboration with The Host’s Bong Joon-Ho.
