Jujutsu Kaisen Director Sunghoo Park and His Popular Works
In case you’re unfamiliar, Sunghoo Park is a well-known anime director from South Korea who is based in Japan.
His career began when he joined Studio Comet, though his most well-known works are with MAPPA.
Park was a key animator for MAPPA anime series such as Terror in Resonance and Yuri on Ice. He then made his anime directorial debut in 2017 with Garo: Vanishing Line.
In case you missed it, Jujutsu Kaisen is an anime series by MAPPA that’s based on the manga of the same name by Gege Akutami.
The manga began serialization in Weekly Shonen Jump back in March 2018.
Jujutsu Kaisen is one of Shonen Jump’s biggest hits as it has over 70 million copies in circulation. Its popularity was also driven by the anime adaptation.
The series as a whole was popular enough that it got a feature film release in Jujutsu Kaisen 0 which was also directed by Park.
The movie is based on the prequel manga series with the same title.
After its Japanese cinema release, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 became a big hit as it became one of the highest-grossing anime films in Japan.
Project Bullet/Bullet Anime Release Details
As for Park’s upcoming anime, Project Bullet/Bullet is an anime with an original story.
According to reports by publications such as Mantan Web, Park spent a decade drafting the story for the anime.
Aside from the fact that this is a passion project from Park, there are not a lot of details regarding this new work from the Jujutsu Kaisen director.
Its current title is also just a tentative title, meaning it might be called something entirely different by the time it gets released.
What we do know is that this upcoming anime will be streamed exclusively on Disney+.
Though there’s currently no word yet on which network the anime will air in Japan.
