Korean War Pic Rounds Out Cast
The upcoming Korean War blockbuster Operation Chromite has filled out its main cast, introducing a number of its local stars during a press conference held in Seoul on October 30th. Joining Hollywood name Liam Neeson and previously announced local actors LEE Jung-jae and LEE Beom-su will be JUNG Joon-ho, KIM Byoung-ok, JIN Se-yun and Korean-Japanese MMA fighter CHOO Sung-hoon.
John H. LEE is helming the large scale film for TAEWON ENTERTAINMENT, which will tell of the Battle of Incheon, a military operation that served as a turning point in the War for UN forces.
JUNG, star of the Marrying the Mafia and My Boss, My Hero franchise, will appear as a South Korean military figure while KIM, who famously played YOO Ji-tae’s white-haired bodyguard in Old Boy (2003), will play a barber with a key part to play in the story. New actress JIN is set to feature as a nurse, and CHOO, in his first ever film role, has been cast as a North Korean soldier.
Producer CHUNG Tae-won mentioned during the conference that he came across the story for Operation Chromite while filming 71-Into The Fire (2010), which he also made with LEE. Though not present, action star Neeson, who will play General Douglas MacArthur, sent a video message, stating that he was “excited to start working on this special film,” which will “honor those who fought for freedom and peace.”
