Hallyu fans, rejoice! Another South Korean heartthrob is coming to Kuala Lumpur ;)
Thanks to tvN Movies, Ji Chang Wook (of “The K2” fame) will be attending the gala premiere for his film, titled “Fabricated City” (조작된 도시), on 8th April (Saturday) at GSC Pavilion.
Helmed by award-winning director Park Kwang Hyun, “Fabricated City” centres on a hardcore gamer named Kwon Yu (played by Chang Wook), who spends most of his time in an Internet cafe – due to chronic unemployment – after being booted out of the national Taekwondo team for assaulting a teammate.
Kwon’s life takes an unexpected turn following an abrupt arrestment and life imprisonment for sexually assaulting and murdering a minor, which supposedly happened after he returned an abandoned cell phone to a mysterious female caller. With the help of his virtual teammates, they uncover a massive plot to a mysterious underworld organisation and it is up to Kwon and his allies to combine forces to prove his innocence.
As this is Ji’s first lead in a feature film, so it’s safe to say that fans and moviegoers are excited to see his performance on the big screen. In speaking about the actor, director Park said, “He is extremely capable of understanding and pulling off believable acting and action sequences. From portraying a strong male figure to a vulnerable boy, his acting spectrum is very wide. He’s an adaptable actor”.
Deets for “Fabricated City” gala premiere are as follows:
- Date: 8th April 2017 (Saturday)
- Time: 7:30pm
- Venue: GSC Cinemas, Pavilion KL
