  • PARK Chan-wook, KIM Jee-woon CHOI Dong-hoon and JANG Joon-hwan Pour Praise on SHIN
    Big names in Korean film have unveiled their high expectations of actor SHIN Ha-kyun’s new film project Running Man, the first Korean movie to get full funding from 20th Century Fox. Acclaimed directors PARK Chan-wook, KIM Jee-woon, JANG Joon-hwan and CHOI Dong-hoon disclosed their admiration for SHIN and his upcoming first-ever actioner after viewing the film’s promotional clip, “Director's Choice SHIN Ha-kyun,” released on March 13th.

    “SHIN is an actor who keeps showing us something new. He has an attitude of an artist who always dares to have adventures and makes brave choices,” said PARK, who made a successful foray into Hollywood with Stoker. PARK worked with SHIN in Joint Security Area, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and Thirst.

    “He is an extraordinary actor who possesses both the ability to portray intimacy and unfamiliarity,” said KIM, director of the Hollywood actioner The Last Stand. Cult director JANG, who directed SHIN’s major work Save the Green Planet, said, “he is an energetic actor who has a great learning ability and flexibility. I’m looking forward to watching his first action film.” “He has great acting skills. I think this movie will be the one to show SHIN’s many charms,” said director CHOI from the 2012 hit The Thieves. The film is to hit local theaters on April 4th.
