Yeo Jin Goo plays Soo Myung in the film “Shoot My Heart.” His character is a young man with a crippling phobia of scissors. That phobia is the result of the guilt he feels over his mother’s death, although it’s not initially understood why he feels guilty or what part he played in her death. His phobia of scissors so inhibits his life that he winds up in Ward 501 of the Soori Psychiatric Hospital.
Once there, he decides to be a model patient and follow the rules. But that may not be the best thing for him.
Fortunately, he makes a friend who has no respect for the rules inside or outside of the hospital. Lee Min Ki plays Seung Min, a young man who likes to make trouble. Although he is a troublemaker, he really does not deserve to be in a psychiatric hospital. He was committed because he stands to inherit all of his family’s wealth and the other family members would like to take it away from him. He’s not crazy but his greedy relatives would like people to think he is so they can get his money. And it’s not helping his case that he thinks the rules don’t apply to him.
The very shy Soo Myung feels safe in the hospital while the impulsive bold Seung Min can’t wait to get out. He repeatedly plans to escape and when the two become friends, Soo Myung begins to follow him. Seung Min will teach Soo Myung how to escape from the hospital, overcome his guilt and truly live.
Lee Min Ki and Yeo Jin Goo have plenty of comic chemistry in the movie, which is not surprising since they are both charismatic actors.
And busy ones. This year Lee Min Ki also appeared in the films “Monster” and “For The Emperor.” His last drama appearance consisted of two episodes in “Shut Up Flower Boy Band” which also starred Sung Joon.
Yeo Jin Goo began his acting career at the age of eight, appearing in “Sad Movie.” The 17-year-old also appears this year in the films “Tazza: The Hidden Card” and “Mr. Perfect.” His last drama appearances were in “The Moon Embracing The Sun,” “Missing You,” and “Potato Star 2013QR3.”
The film is based on “Nae Simjangeul Sswara,” the bestselling novel by Jung Yoo Jung. Moon Je Yong directs the film. Also in the cast are Yu Oh Sung, Kim Jung Tae, Han Hye Rin and Park Doo Sik. The film will be released in January 2015. Meanwhile, check out the trailer below.
