Early promos are revving up for the upcoming early spring comedy coming-of-age movie Twenty. The drama drops in March which is really a nice close one-two punch for leading man Kim Woo Bin, coming off a successful winter holiday movie run for the caper flick The Con Artists. That movie wasn’t a runaway success but did well enough at the box office to net Kim Woo Bin a win notch on his film career belt. I actually have more interest and expectation for the upcoming Twenty since it comes from the PD-screenwriter Lee Byung Hun (not the actor) who did mega comedy hits Sunny and Speedy Scandal.
Joining Kim Woo Bin are two young actors I also like a lot, namely Kang Ha Neul (reuniting with Woo Bin since Heirs) and Junho of 2PM. The leading ladies are two hits in Jung So Min and Lee Yoo Bi with one miss that is the anemic Min Hyo Rin, but since this is an ensemble movie with the three male leads and their friendship and growing up at the center it’s not a deal breaker. The movie released two adorable official posters and one hilarious character teaser video, all of which continue to up my interest since the movie looks genuinely warm, heartfelt, and witty. It’s also a treat to see super cool Kim Woo Bin let loose and play a directionless twenty year old young man.
