This might be one of the most star-packed K-movie premieres I’ve seen in a long time, which goes to show that Kim Soo Hyun’s star is incredibly high and his agency Key East Entertainment has lots and lots of A-list stars under founder Bae Yong Joon’s vest since everyone was trotted out for this premiere to support Kim Soo Hyun.

They despair of ever being called into duty until a truly covert operation requires all three to band together and kick into action.
The long trailer is out and it looks pretty neat, equal parts flower boy ogling, silly undercover hijinks, and finally a thrilling spy military caper to top it off. I love the main three cast since all three guys are adorable and can act.

I only wished Kim Soo Hyun wore better fitting pants to his own movie premiere and also some shoes that don’t look like my grandpa’s beach sandals. Check out the star walk and the movie trailer below. Continue reading
