THE SHAMELESS (Hangul: 무뢰한) is an upcoming Korean hard-boiled melodrama-romance film written and directed by Oh Seung-uk (오승욱 / 吴胜旭), starring Kim Nam-gil (김남길 / 金南佶) and Jeon Do-yeon (전도연 / 全度妍).
It will have its world premiere in the Un Certain Regard section of the 68th Cannes Film Festival (Cannes 2015), where Jeon won the Best Actress Award in 2007 with the film Secret Sunshine (밀양 / 密阳) and served as a jury member last year.
The film, also known as Rouge, revolves around a love story between Jung Jae-gon (Kim), a detective who goes to any length to close his cases, and Kim Hye-kyung (Jeon), a bar girl who is also the lover of Jung’s latest suspect. He goes undercover at her bar, hoping she will lead him to his suspect ― but ends up falling in love with her.
