Lee will play a civil servant, acting alongside veteran actress Na Moon-hee, who plays a neighborhood busybody who files complaint after complaint with the local office to right the wrongs around her.
Lee’s character ends up tutoring Na’s character in English. The two, different in age, gender and personality, learn to communicate through an unfamiliar language and embark on an unlikely friendship.
Na, 75, debuted in 1960 and has starred in a variety of small- and big-screen productions. She is currently starring in the MBC drama “Father, I’ll Take Care of You.”
The film will be directed by Kim Hyun-seok, known for the 2010 romantic drama film “Cyrano Agency.”
