Kim Soo Hyun is a mysterious character in stills from his new movie REAL
For the last 6 months, Kim Soo Hyun has been working hard on his new movie REAL, described as an action noir that is full of dark suspense. The film just released its initial stills a few days ago. Take a look at these stills that show off the mysterious atmosphere in which the My Love From Another Star actor is playing a character who's very different from his past roles.
Kim Soo Hyun plays cold and ambitious Jang Tae Young, a popular problem solver in the criminal world, who wants to expand his power base by building a casino hotel. These stills appear to deliberately only show his silhouette to add more mystery to his character.
For the popular actor, it's an opportunity to stretch his acting portfolio and present a new style to his fans. Among the 111 total scenes in the movie, he appears in 110 of them. Kim reportedly said that the intensive filming schedule has been a very special experience for him. "Whether it was the first scene or the last scene, it's felt like a dream. Now that filming has completed, I feel relieved but also feel a kind of a loss," said Kim Soo Hyun.
REAL previously made headline news last year when it searched for a new female lead in an open casting call and Han Ji Eun emerged from 4,200 applicants. Now, these initial stills are raising renew interest in the dark mystery thriller.
The movie is surely going to be highly anticipated when it is released in early 2017. Filming started on January 3, 2016 and just completed on June 30 with a huge action scene between Kim Soo Hyun's character and his adversaries. The movie also stars Lee Sung Min, Sung Dong Il, and former f(x) member Sulli.
