The “Lovers in Paris” actor Park Shin-yang has finished shooting a new comedy film in which he plays a gangster slash shaman, Showbox announced in press release Thursday.

The film’s officials said that Park finished the four-month shooting of “A gangster shaman” (translated title) last Tuesday and the pic will open in local theaters in September.

Helmed by director Jo Jin-kyu of the mega-hit comic pic “The Wife is the Gang Leader” (2001), actress Jung Hye-young, Um Jee-won, and actor Kim Jeong-tae also play big roles in the comedy flick.

“A gangster shaman” tells the story of Gwang-ho (Park), a qualified gangster who has both loyalty and skills. While living the life of a gangster, he suddenly gets possessed with a spirit and becomes a shaman, entering into an extremely dangerous double life as a gangster slash shaman.

Park, who started his career in low-budget art films in the early 1990s, has become popular by playing a blunt-but-pure gangster in romantic pic “A Promise,” (1998) and a comedy film “Hi! Dharma!” (2001).

The actor has diversified his filmography by starring in a number of hit TV series, such as SBS’ drama “Lovers in Paris” (2004), " “War of Money” (2007) and “Sign” (2011).

“Lovers in Paris,” the actor’s most highlighted work, is one of the top 20 highest-rated drama of all-time in Korea. The project is also one of handful of dramas to reach the 50 percent mark in ratings.
