Newly wed actor Kwon Sang-woo was caught walking down the aisle once again ― this time with actress Lee Bo-young in the upcoming movie “A Sad Story” (working title).

As its title suggests, the film is about heartbreaking, unrequited love. The wedding shoot, revealed to the press Monday in a Seoul cathedral, featured Kwon’s character walking down the aisle with the woman he loves (Lee Bo-young) ― but only to marry her off to another man (Lee Beom-soo).

Kwon returns to the romance genre after foraying comic or tough guy parts, such as in “Fate.” He said he drew inspiration from his own marriage for his latest role. “I think being married enables me to think more deeply about playing melodramatic parts. Like my movie character, Kay, I also needed a lot of courage to bear the fruits of my love,” he said.

The “Stairway to Heaven” star made headlines last year when his clandestine romance with actress Sohn Tae-young became public. The two tied the knot in September and are expecting a baby in the spring. “Kay braves his circumstances for love, and I thought I might have done the same if I were in his shoes,” he said.

Actor Kim Myung-min, star of the hit drama “Beethoven Virus,” has been cast in the lead role of the upcoming melodrama “My Love By My Side.”

Kim will play the challenging role of a man suffering from Lou Gehrig’s disease who still maintains a sense of humor. He will appear alongside actress Ha Ji-won, who will play a cheerful funeral director.

“My Love By My Side” is expected to be a romantic tearjerker. The film’s director will be Park Jin-pyo, who directed the award-winning film “You Are My Sunshine” and “Voice of a Murderer.”

Shooting for the film will begin early next year. It is tentatively scheduled to be released in the fall of 2009.

Kim’s popularity has skyrocketed this year with his role as Maestro Kang, a gifted conductor, in the MBC drama about classical musicians “Beethoven Virus.” He recently won the top acting prize at the 2008 Korea Drama Festival.

Hallyu star Kwon Sang-woo was initially reported to have been cast in the lead role for the film. However, Kwon dropped out of the project last October, causing production to be delayed.
