Henney plays James, who volunteers to join the U.S. Forces Korea as a way to find his biological parents. On the first day of shooting on Jan. 10, he successfully shed his gentlemanly image for his role as the young adopted man who slowly opens his heart to his jailed father. “I will try hard to use my personal experience of living in the U.S. to play James, who has lived his life feeling estranged as an adopted child,” Henney said.
“My Father” is the feature debut of director Hwang Dong-hyeuk, who attracted plaudits at home and abroad with his short film “Miracle Mile” starring Karl Yune. Kim Young-chol plays Henney’s father.
