There couldn't possibly be a better start to the new year. Earlier this year there was a big announcement of her blockbuster drama Hotel Del Luna getting a musical makeover. Also, IU's newly released single Celebrity has been sweeping the global music charts since its release. Now, she is all set to add a new feather in her cap of an already long list of achievements with her new film.

According to YTN via Soompi, IU has been confirmed as the lead and will mark her big-screen presence, alongside revered Korean stars like Kang Dong Won (Peninsula), Song Kang Ho (Parasite) and Bae Doona (Kingdom), in Japanese filmmaker Koreeda Hirokazu's Korean directorial film Broker (working title). Director Hirokazu is best known for his 2018 film Shoplifters, that won the Palme d’Or at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival. He has been working on Broker for over five years now and has already begun the base work with the Korean crew of the film.

The film's story revolves around people who can no longer provide for their babies, and how they can give them up anonymously by putting them in baby boxes. The film will be produced by Zip Cinemas (Alive, Master) and CJ ENM will be investing in and distributing the film. The film is set to go on floors this year.
