      Yoo to deliver "A Frozen Flower"
      Written by Han Sunhee
      Korean helmer Yoo Ha who last made kinetic gangster pic "A Dirty Carnival", has put together a top notch package for big budget historic drama "A Frozen Flower." Pic will be the first from a new indie shingle confusingly called Universal Pictures.

      "Flower" is an adaptation of a true story from the Koryo dynasty about a king (Joo Jin-mo) who falls in love with his bodyguard, played by "Carnival" star Jo In-sung. Yoo has not yet cast the role of the angry queen.

      With a budget set at $10 million, pic will be produced by Lee Tae Hun ("Sympathy for Lady Vengeance") of Opus Picutres.

      Lee recently launched Universal Pictures as a joint venture with two other producers, Zip Cinema's Lee Yu-jin ("The Voice of a Murderer") and Bokyungsa's Sim Bo-kyung("Bloody Tie").
      "We're still planning to make films from our own production companies, because it's a bit dangerous to merge the three companies. But it's reasonable for us to co-manage the investment and distribution deals through Universal Pictures," Lee said. "A Frozen Flower will be the first film of our new company model."
