Can’t get enough of South Korean heartthrobs Lee Jong Suk (이종석) and Jang Dong Gun (장동건)? Well, we’ve got good news for you ;)
The actors were recently confirmed to star in filmmaker Park Hoon Jung’s (from “New World” and “The Great Tiger”) upcoming movie, titled “VIP”, alongside Park Hee Soon (박희순) and Kim Myung Min (김명민).
According to Naver via Soompi, “VIP” revolves around the son of a high-ranking North Korean official named Kwang Il (played by Lee Jong Suk), who commits a series of murders as he travels the world, resulting in a pursuit from both Koreas (North and South) as well as Interpol. Jang Dong Gun’s role has yet to be revealed.
A source revealed that the shooting for the movie is expected to begin in October, adding that Jang Dong Gun was the first person the director cast in the movie.
No release date has been set yet, but we will update this post with more information as soon as we can get ’em :)
26-year-old Lee Jong Suk is best known for his leading roles in hit K-Dramas such as “School 2013” (2012), “I Can Hear Your Voice” (2013), “Doctor Stranger” (2014), and “Pinocchio” (2014) while 44-year-old Jang Dong Gun starred in many critically acclaimed films such as “Friend” (2001), “Taegukgi: The Brotherhood of War” (2004), and “Good Morning, President” (2009).
To be honest, we are very excited to see the outcome of the film as this will be Lee Jong Suk’s first time playing a villain.
