Hype’s Must Watch: The Battleship Island

It is without a doubt that “Descendants of the Sun” star Song Joong Ki (송중기) is the talk of the town, no, the world today, thanks to his early morning wedding announcement which took everyone by surprise.

But now fans have another reason to get really, really excited because his upcoming film will be shown in Malaysian cinemas 😀

Titled, “The Battleship Island” (군함도), the historical action flick centres on the Japanese colonial era, when roughly 400 Korean people, who were forced onto Battleship Island (“Hashima Island”) to mine for coal, attempt to escape. Song Joong Ki plays Park Moo Young, a member of the Korean independence movement who infiltrates the island in order to rescue a fellow independence fighter being held captive there.

Luckily for us, Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) took to their Facebook page earlier today to announce that, yes, Malaysians will have the opportunity to catch Song Joong Ki in action come August!

The cinema chain uploaded the movie’s poster, alongside a caption which reads, “Oppa is here!! Here comes the official poster for ‘The Battleship Island’ featuring Hwang Jung Min, So Ji Sub, and Song Joong Ki!”

Directed by Ryoo Seung Wan (of “Veteran” and “The Berlin File” fame), “The Battleship Island” also stars  Hwang Jung Min, So Ji Sub, and Lee Jung Hyun.

So save the date: 17th August 2017 😉
