Pinch yourself all you want but you’re definitely not dreaming. Not today ;)
According to the GSC Cinemas Facebook page, the cast of “The Battleship Island” (군함도) is coming to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, presumably for a promotional tour of the movie, which is slated to be released here on 17th August 2017. GSC Cinemas posted up the announcement about half an hour ago today (Monday, 24th July 2017). Although they did not elaborate further on which cast members will be coming, Sin Chew reported that all 3 main leads – Hwang Jung Min, Song Joong Ki, and So Ji Sub – will be in attendance on 9th August 2017 (Wednesday).
“The Battleship Island” is a 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.
Directed by Ryoo Seung Wan (of “Veteran” and “The Berlin File” fame), “The Battleship Island” stars Song Joong Ki, Hwang Jung Min, So Ji Sub, and Lee Jung Hyun.
More details to come!
