“The Golden Holiday,” produced by Showbox Entertainment Corp., was directed by Kim Bong-han, who is known for films “Can You See Me?” and “Ordinary Person,” among others.

Confiado is starring alongside actors Kwak Do-won, Kim Dae-myung, Kim Hee-won, Kim Sang-ho, Shin Dong-mi and Lee Yoo-jin-Ito.


The film tells the story of a detective’s supposed family trip to the Philippines that turned into an investigation of a local murder involving “Yamashita’s Gold.”

“A laid-back countryside detective Byung-su (Kwak Do-won) takes his family to the Philippines for his 10th wedding anniversary. In fact, his hidden agenda is to track down his old friend Yong-bae (Kim Sang-ho) who scammed him and got away a few years ago. In Manila, Byung-su finds Yong-bae in prison for murder, and hears about the case surrounding ‘Yamashita’s Gold.’ Swayed by a share of the Gold that Yong-bae offers, Byung-su suddenly becomes embroiled in the case,” the synopsis reads.  /ra
