It appears actor Kang Dong Won will not be appearing in director Lee Chang Dong's upcoming film 'Burning', despite having looked over the script. 


According to reports on July 7, Kang Dong Won has rejected the offer to star in 'Burning'. The film revolves around the story of a wealthy man and a delivery man who try to win the heart of a woman, and is based on Japanese author Haruki Murakami's novel 'Norwegian Wood'.

As I read from some other media reports, Kang Dong Won had to turn down this movie because it conflicted with other work he has already accepted for this year. After all this movie was going to be filmed end of last year and it was postponed without an exact date.I would have really like to see him and Yoo Ah In on one production. Those two are my favourites. Such a talented duo.

Gosh! Kang Dong Won never ages. He is soooo good looking for a 35 year old!

The movie was going to start shooting in November 2016, but due to production delays Yoo Ah In rejected his role in Feb 2017 (also because his disease) and now Kang Dong Won also, i think because his schedule has to be done, he can't wait more than a year for this movie.
