"In 2014, Lee cast Sol Kyung-gu and Park Hae-il in his third film, My Dictator


In 2011, CJ Entertainment announced an American remake with Mark Waters attached as director


Three years later, Lee made his first solo directorial effort Castaway on the Moon (2009), in which he continued whimsically exploring themes of alienation in modern life


In 2006, he and Lee Hae-young co-wrote and co-directed the coming-of-age film Like a Virgin, in which Ryu Deok-hwan played an overweight trans woman teenager who idolizes Madonna and joins the high school ssireum team, hoping to use the prize money, if they win the national tournament, for sex change surgery


Lee Hae-jun studied advertising at Seoul Institute of the Arts, but he soon made a name for himself in the Korean film industry for writing screenplays in various genres, such as Kim Jee-woon's vampire short film Coming Out, Jo Keun-shik's 1980s-set high school comedy Conduct Zero (2002), Kim Jin-min's small-town romance Au Revoir, UFO (2004), and Yim Pil-sung's psychological thriller Antarctic Journal (2005)


Lee Hae-jun (born August 18, 1973) is a South Korean film director and screenwriter


Set in the 1970s, the film is about a bit part theater actor (played by Sol) whom the Korean Central Intelligence Agency hires as the body double for Kim Il-sung in the rehearsals for a historic North-South summit between Kim and Park Chung-hee


Like a Virgin was also invited to international film festivals, including the Generation section of the 57th Berlin International Film Festival, and the 20th Singapore International Film Festival where it won the NETPAC Award


Like his previous film, Lee's Castaway on the Moon traveled the international film festival circuit, winning the NETPAC Award at the 29th Hawaii International Film Festival, the Black Dragon Audience Award at the 12th Udine Far East Film Festival, the Audience Award at the 9th New York Asian Film Festival, and the Special Jury Prize at the 14th Fantasia International Film Festival


The filmmakers gained praise for their directorial debut and its sensitive portrayal of a potentially controversial subject, which resulted in several nominations and awards, including Best New Director(s) at the 7th Busan Film Critics Awards, Best Screenplay and Best New Director(s) at the 27th Blue Dragon Film Awards, Best New Director(s) at the 5th Korean Film Awards, and Best Screenplay at the 43rd Baeksang Arts Awards
