When k-drama fans go to the movies this winter, their choice may likely be one of the three films featuring the stars of “The Heirs.” Park Shin Hye, Lee Min Ho and Kim Woo Bin all have films coming out in the next few months.
Lee Min Ho appears in his first film “Gangnam Blues,” also known as “Gangnam 1970.” The film takes place during the 1970s when the now affluent Gangnam section of Seoul was quickly being developed for profit. The desire to acquire land led to political corruption and involved gangs.
Lee Min Ho’s character grew up in an orphanage with another character played by Kim Rae Won. The struggle for land will pit them against each other. The film also stars Kim Ji Su and Jung Jin Young. Every one of Lee Min Ho’s dramas has been a success, so his film debut is highly anticipated. The film is due to be released in January 2015.
Park Shin Hye’s film “The Tailors,” also known as “The Royal Tailor” also features actors Han Suk Kyu, currently in “Secret Door,” Ko Soo, last seen in Empire of Gold, and Yoo Yeon Suk, the star of “Reply 1994.” It’s the story of Joseon era tailors who created beautiful clothes for the royal family. Park Shin Hye plays the young queen, whose taste for the latest fashions gets the court involved in some political conflicts. It was not Park Shin Hye’s first film. The 24-year-old actress appeared in her first film in 2006. But it was her first historical film.
“It was my first time filming a historical move,” she said. “I was happy that I was able to film it with such great colleagues.”
The film is set for a December release date.
Kim Woo Bin, who played Lee Min Ho’s rival for Park Shin Hye’s affections, can be seen in the hightech heist film “Criminal Designers,” also called “Con Men” and “The Technicians.”
It’s the story of professional con artists who are hired by a mob boss to rob the almost $150 million supposedly hidden in an Incheon International Airport vault. And they have to do it within 40 minutes. Kim Woo Bin is a safecracking con artist and Lee Hyun Woo plays his associate, a genius hacker. Also in the cast are Lim Joo Hwan, Go Chang Suk, Kim Young Chul and Jo Yoon Hee. The film is set to premiere in Korea in December.
