After crowd-funding over $300,000 and 3 months of intense pre-production planning, Wong Fu has finally announced the start of their principal photography and revealed the principal cast for their first feature film.
The film follows two couples who face different obstacles in their respective relationships in a world where all romantic relationships are documented and monitored by the Department of Emotional Integrity (DEI). The DEI serves relationship scores, much like credit scores, to hold individuals accountable for their actions in relationships. While Seth and Haley are a hopeful high school couple registering their relationship for the first time, Ben and Sara are a separated couple in their mid-twenties who must reunite to settle an old report.
Since these two stories explore various deep themes regarding relationships, it’s only natural that Wong Fu took their sweet time casting the right actors. Some faces are new and some familiar, but all are incredibly talented.
We present t0 you Wong Fu’s principal cast!
Aaron Yoo (21, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist)
Brittany Ishibashi (Castle, Parenthood, Emily Owens M.D.)
