Former f(x) member Sulli has joined the cast of Kim Soo Hyun's upcoming film "Real."
The action noir film focuses on the character Jang Tae Young, a man who solves difficult problems for gangsters. He does not think about what he has to do or who he has to hurt as long as it helps him accomplish his master plan. He wants to build a casino and become the most powerful man in his city. A run-in with a reporter changes his plans.
Jang Tae Young is the character Kim Soo Hyun will play. It's a dramatic change from his last role as the dorky newbie producer in "Producer."
