South Korean singer-songwriter Park Yoo-chun is making his return to acting. For a new independent film, titled 'To Evil', Yoo-chun has been cast as the main role, marking his first lead role in a movie since 'Sea Fog : les clandestins' in 2014.

The film reportedly follows the story of one man while also featuring active theater actors. A source related to the actor confirmed Yoo-chun's comeback, saying, “Recently, Park Yoo-chun confirmed his leading role in the independent movie ‘To Evil.'"

Several reports have shared different versions of the title: 'Make An Offering To Evil', 'Devoted to Evil', or just 'To Evil', depending on translations, so the moniker could change when an official announcement is made for English audiences or English platforms.
