"Fabricated City" is the latest offering from commercial director-turned-filmmaker Park Kwang-hyun, who's mostly known for helming 2005's hit Korean War film "Welcome to Dongmakgol."
Korean TV actor Ji Chang-wook (The K2) stars in the film as Kwon Yoo, an unemployed video game addict who is framed for the murder of a teenage girl. After realizing that an anonymous conspirator has literally turned his life into an actual game of survival, he sets out to uncover the truth behind the girl's death.
Also starring Korean actress Shim Eun-kyung (Miss Granny) and Korean actor Ahn Jae-hong (The King of Jokgu), "Fabricated City" is slated to open in Korea in February. As of yet, there's no official U.S. release date, but you check out the film's international trailer, above.
In real life, Kwon Yoo (Ji Chang-Wook) is unemployed, but in the virtual game world he is the best leader. Kwon Yoo is then framed for a murder. With the help of hacker Yeo-Wool (Shim Eun-Kyung), he tries to uncover the truth behind the murder case.
