Jeon Ji Hyun, Lee Jung Jae, and Ha Jung Woo Hit the Red Carpet for Action Flick The Assassination

Just because Jeon Ji Hyun did one mega hit K-drama without any indication she’s planning anymore small screen forays doesn’t mean she’s not acting. She’s just back to her day job is all, being one of the biggest K-actress movie stars of her generation. Her next movie costars two of the biggest K-actor movie stars to boot in Ha Jung Woo and Lee Jung Jae, and actually reminds me of another hit K-movie that bundled up three A-listers in an action flick to great success.

The K-movie The Assassination is opening soon at the box office and involves a period action political intrigue plot set in politically unstable 1933 Korea. The movie trailer (below) reminds me of a less goofy version of The Good, The Bad, The Weird starring Jung Woo Sung, Lee Byung Hun, and Song Kang Ho, the idea of putting three big movie stars on a road movie with the same goal to achieve. It’s cool that Jeon Ji Hyun is so big she can same billing as those top male actors, but really she’s earned all the accolades with a combination of great acting and goddess star appeal.

Assassination also costars many more K-ent veteran movie stars including Kim Hae Sook, Oh Dal Soo, Jo Jin Woong, Lee Kyung Yung, and Choi Deok Moon. Everyone turned out looking splashing for the red carpet media event this week in Seoul to promote the movie, which is directed by the box office hit director who did The Thieves and Jeon Woo Chi.

  1. How much I miss my goddess. So, it’ll be another 10 years to await her dramaland return and I guess I’ll be waiting watching you from another star for 10 years.

  2. She really selected her project well..last movie was Berlin file. She always choose strong character and hope she sticks to movie being a movie star

  3. There should really be more movies/dramas done about 1930’s. It was such an interesting (and incredibly sad) period of Korean history.
