Starring T.O.P alongside his fellow BIGBANG member Seung Ri and Huh Yi Jae, the Korean film 19 is the feature for this weekend's Movie Night! The thrilling crime film is about teenagers who are framed for murder and work to solve the mystery of who the real killer is and prove their innocence. Since we can't solve crimes, let's decode the mystery of who these actors are with 9 things you probably didn't know about the cast of 19!
1. Family comes #1 for T.O.P — literally. He claims that his mom is still the first one on his speed dial.
