Lee Seung Gi ♥ Shim Eun Kyung ‘Goonghap’ to be Unveiled at Cannes Film Festival

*updated with translation* OMG! I’m at work and don’t have time to translate the article right now, but I just got so excited when I saw this! I’ll update later when I have time. 😛

Movie ‘GoongHap’ (Director Hong Chang Pyo) starring actors Lee Seung Gi & Shim Eun Kyung was unveiled at the 70th Cannes Film Festival Market.

‘GoongHap’ is a sageuk movie that depicts a story of amazing fate of Princess SongHwa who rejects a royally arranged marriage and the best goonghap specialist Seo Do Yoon who goes to the palace to predict the marital compatibility of the royal son-in-law candidates who each has a different Four Pillars (of destiny).

Cranked-up [finished filming] in December of 2015, GoongHap was Lee Seung Gi’s last project before enlistment. Originally aiming for release in last year’s holiday season, the movie’s release date has not been confirmed due to several factors like CJ Entertainment’s internal lineup and competition timing.

Unveiled at Cannes Market, GoongHap is filled with Lee Seung Gi and Shim Eun Kyung’s fresh visual and raises expectations of the two people’s romance chemistry.

Meanwhile, the 70th Cannes Film Festival will be held through May 28.

So the movie is not there for competition but for marketing/distribution. Either way, best of luck!

    So it’s not yet unveiled? Because I didn’t find the name anywhere. Hope it’ll have good reviews from critics then do well when it premieres in SK.

    It’s a huge honor, I had really low expectations for it, it’s the director’s 1st solo work. The hugest star is Seung Gi (and SEK) and it’s his 2nd movie only. Especially since thy kept pushing it back.

    Ah, I hope he makes a name for himself and earns praise. Hopefuelly he’ll come personally to Cannes in the future.

      Also we must support him and vote for him on vote for most- most handsome korean actor 2017. In Europe results of such polls are considered.

      • Rann43 says:

        I’m gonna be voting him 40x daily with different browsers, would be more if it didn’t take forever to load.

      I know this wasn’t your intention, and I know LSG is the star of the movie as well, but putting SEK’s name in brackets like that kind of undermines her.

      She’s the more established actor of the 2, even though she’s just 22/23, and I’m glad LSG had the chance to work with her.

      • AnnMichelle says:

        To Anonymous, I know your intention is good, but you made a similar judging statement that some might disagree with (I would be one of them). There is no need for comparison. Let’s all wish the best for this movie, shall we?

    I’m so happy for Seung GI 😘😘😘…but so bitter for the long wait to see this movie too. We had been waiting since last year to see it and nothing…anyway this are good news and doesn’t matter if the film wins or not, just being there is awesome for all the hard work of that team and of course, our Sweetie😘😘😘😘😘😘. Thanks for sharing!

    Please do so, I tryed to find a French article but nothing but if true, perhaps from the 1st time on my life I’ll try to go at Cannes for the festival, it’s far away but for LSG I would try!
    Please let it be on one of my day off!

  7. At last!!! After a longgggg wait 😊😊😊
    I’m excited to watch this.

    Miss Seunggi so much! Hoping for this to be true. The first thing I did when I read this post was to check Cannes 2017 articles. But didn’t find Gonghap or Marital Harmony. Still looking forward to Seunggi’s success in this film. It has been shelved for so long…Hoping and praying once it premieres it’ll do well in the box office!

  9. AnnMichelle says:

    As the movie talks about fate, destiny (and the will to bend it), and compatibility, all subjects with a New Age-ish tint, I am sure it will excite lots of buyers, hahaha. Best of luck, Goonghap! Waiting for you, Seung Gi!

    This is the first time I see Seung Gi wearing the hanbok. He looks pretty cute in hanbok. I suppose the film will only be released when Seung Gi gets discharged from the military. It’s like a very very long 2 years of military service. Simply can’t wait for October to come. 🙂
