Actor Ha Jung-woo (45, real name Kim Seong-hoon) told the story about his casting for his directed film 'Lobby'.

On the 24th, Ha Jung-woo gave an interview about the movie 'Unofficial Operation' (Director Kim Seong-hoon) and talked about the movie. In 'Unofficial Operation', Ha Jung-woo took on the role of Min-joon, a dirt spoon diplomat who has been working for 5 years in the Middle East Department and is far from the career course. After receiving a phone call with a survival signal for a diplomat who disappeared 20 months ago, Min-jun volunteers for an unofficial operation to save him on the condition that he be assigned to the United States if successful, and heads to Lebanon alone during the civil war.

On this day, Ha Jung-woo said, "It is true that we are discussing casting, and nothing has been decided 100%" in relation to the movie 'Lobby', which he directed. 'Lobby' is known to have cast Bae Seong-woo, an actor who recently caused controversy over drunk driving and is self-restraint. Regarding casting actors Ra Mi-ran, Kim Dong-wook, Bae Sung-woo, etc. in this regard, Ha Jung-woo said, "Each actor has a different schedule and position. Nothing has been decided yet, and the outline will be revealed around September, so I wonder if it will be announced around that time."

Ha Jung-woo said again, "'Lobby' is scheduled to be cranked in around September, so I will be able to tell you about it myself around that time." "'Lobby' is not a golf movie, but a story about people on the golf course. I thought I should make a character movie for golfers. It was planned,” he explained.

'Unofficial Operation' is a buddy action movie featuring Ha Jung-woo and Ju Ji-hoon as the two tops. It depicts the story of diplomat Min-jun (Ha Jung-woo) and local taxi driver Pan-su (Ju Ji-hoon) who went to Lebanon to save a missing colleague. Opening August 2nd.
