South Korean actor Song Seung-heon is set to star in a melodrama movie depicting a military officer’s clandestine love, the film’s local distributor NEW said Monday.
The film titled “Love Addiction” follows a Korean hero of the Vietnam War who falls in abandoned love with the wife of a subordinate during the war.
It is a new work by filmmaker Kim Dae-woo who wrote the screenplay for “Untold Scandal” (2003), and directed “Forbidden Quest” (2006) and “Bangja” (2010).
“I felt the class of the ‘Untold Scandal,’ the intensity of ‘Lust, Caution,’ the ardentness of ‘In the Mood For Love’ at the same time,” Song said through the distributor of his first impression about the film from the new movie’s script.
Song rose to stardom for his starring role in the hugely popular KBS TV drama “Autumn in My Heart.” The series was exported all over Asia, making both him and co-stars Song Hye-kyo and Won Bin pan-Asian and Korean wave stars.
Since then, he has been actively recruited for film roles and advertisements in Japan, Hong Kong and other Asian countries.
“Love Addiction” will begin filming next month for a 2014 release, according to the company.

Song Seung Hun sat down for an interview with eNews at a restaurant located in Sinsa-dong, Seoul where they talked about his latest project, “When A Man Loves,” and his character in the drama.
Regarding if he’s ready for marriage, Song Seung Hun shared, “I don’t have the confidence to be one woman’s husband nor one child’s father. I would have to sacrifice a lot, but I don’t think I will be good yet and don’t have the confidence.”
He went on, “When I think about Lee Byung Hyun hyung’s upcoming marriage or Kwon Sang Woo with his wife Son Tae Young, they look happy and I’m envious and wish to get married. However, when I see my married friends, it looks like they have hard times. Even though there are good things, there are also difficult things with marriage. Being a great father and husband doesn’t look easy.”
When asked about his view on love, Song Seung Hun replied, “When I was dating my first love, it felt like something from the movies. We really connected and there was this hot passion going on. I see that as fate. It’s because I was able to experience that, I’m not able to meet people easily if there are no feelings.”
He continued, “It’s been a really long time since I last dated. I think that it was before going to the military service. I want to meet someone who I can connect with passionately and love again.”
