  • INSIDERS with LEE Byung-hun Begins Shooting
  • by Pierce Conran /  Jul 22, 2014
  • Thrillers Co-Stars CHO Seung-woo and BAEK Yoon-shik

    Filming began last week for the upcoming Korean thriller Insiders. Featuring superstar LEE Byung-hun in the lead, the film also features actors CHO Seung-woo and BAEK Yoon-shik. Holding the reigns is The Spies (2012) and Man of Vendetta (2010) helmer WOO Min-ho.
    Based on a webcomic by YOON Tae-ho, who also inked the source material for 2010’s Moss, Insiders features LEE as a political enforcer who handles the dirty for those in the halls of power. Following a sudden fall from grace, he sets out to exact revenge.
    One of Korea’s most high profile actors, LEE has featured in Masquerade (2012) and Hollywood hits such as the G.I. Joe franchise and Red 2. He will next be seen in the period epic Memories of the Sword. Joining him are CHO Seung-woo of Tazza: The High Rollers (2006) fame as a prosecutor and Save the Green Planet (2003) star BAEK Yoon-shick as a journalist.
    Set to be released in 2015, Insiders joins an already blockbuster-heavy lineup from Showbox, who are releasing the highly anticipated Kundo: Age of Rampant this week and currently in production with YOO Ha’s 1970s-set gangster film Gangnam Blues, LEE Joon-ik’s period film Sado with SONG Kang-ho and Detective K: Farmhand's Daughter. Production for the film got underway in a Seoul night club on July 13th.
