'Helpless' to open in select theaters in North America
'Helpless' (Korean title: 'Hwacha') is a mystery thriller movie that became an unexpected box office hit upon its Korean release in March. Following its limited release at the CGV Cinemas in Los Angeles, 'Helpless' will be making its way into select theaters across North America on Friday, May 11th.
The film features an all-star cast, including Lee Sun Gyun, Kim Min Hee, and Cho Sung Ha. Additionally, the movie's director Byun Young Joo was recently awarded the Best Director award at the 48th Paeksang Arts Awards, making her the first female director ever to receive the title.
The film is based on the Japanese novel "Kasha" (English title: "All She Was Worth"), which was written by Miyabe Miyuki. Lee Sun Gyun plays the role of Jang Mun Ho, a veternarian who is engaged to Kang Sun Young (Kim Min Hee). One day, as the couple were on their way to visiting Jang Mun Ho's parents, they pulled over at a rest stop. When Jang Mun Ho returned to his car, he found the door swung open and the engine running, but his fiancee was no where to be found.
He turns to his cousin Kim Jong Geun (Cho Sung Ha), a former detective, to begin his desperate search for his fiancee. However, as they begin their search her true identity becomes more and more questionable.
