Actor Appears to Have Another Bright Year on the Horizon in 2018
Following his success with TRAIN TO BUSAN in 2016 and THE OUTLAWS in 2017, actor Don LEE has just been confirmed for another action film, titled Raging Bull. His agency, DayDream Entertainment, announced on the 15th that Don LEE was cast in director KIM Min-ho’s debut film, Raging Bull, as the lead actor.
Raging Bull is about a man who sets off to fight barehanded against vicious villains with his friends to rescue his wife. Don LEE’s performance in TRAIN TO BUSAN, in which portrayed a devoted husband who protected his wife, was highly praised and it looks like his character in Raging Bull will expand on that concept. The film is currently casting for the role of the wife.
Don LEE worked with new director KANG Yun-sung for THE OUTLAWS, which was able to sell 6.87 million tickets, and earlier this year he was confirmed to play the lead role in a film led by another rookie director, LIM Jin-sun, titled Gomtaengi (working title). As Raging Bull is another debut feature, it is receiving a lot of attention. Directors KANG Yun-sung, LIM Jin-sun and KIM Min-ho are all close friends of Don LEE. The actor is said to have participated in the scriptwriting process as well as the planning, development and production of these three films. In 2018 summer, Don LEE will be on the screen for part two of Along With the Gods as a new lead, and will also star in JO Won-hee’s Wonderful Ghost and KIM Yong-wan’s Champion.
