Jo In Sung and Jung Woo Sung Team Up for K-movie The King


Talk about a long awaited pairing of flower boy actors across a generation. The upcoming dramatic movie The King has finally finalized casting and landed two A-list actors to boot. Jung Woo Sung and Jo In Sung will be headlining the movie to start filming later this month. This movie has been in the works since middle of 2015, and even back then was rumored to star Jo In Sung. I’ve no problem with Jo In Sung doing a movie, especially since his last two movies were totally intense and memorable with A Frozen Flower and Dirty Carnival. It’s just a shame for a drama lover like me that he’s doing a movie since it means the chances are lower that he’ll also do a drama in 2016. Jung Woo Sung has been a movie star for the last twenty years, and his recent return to K-dramas haven’t correctly utilized his charisma and potential, so better that my I Lub You stuck with the big screen. The two men will play best friends from childhood who grow up into opposite career choices – one is a prosecutor and the other a gangster boss. Everyone has one of those love-hate frenemies, right?

I’m already salivating over the visual doubling down of two equally tall and imposing male leads in the same movie. They also have similar intense acting styles. This is going to be so worth checking out.

  1. 2016 is going to be such a sausage fest for k-movies, I mean, that’s how it usually is, but there’s at least one token (main) female role in their big films. This year though, with all these male centric films, I wonder if there’s gonna be one single female (with a main role) in the top 10 box office.

    • Huh? There is bunch of big female led movies coming out this year. Haeunhwa staring Han Hyo Joo and Chun Woo Hee, The Handmaiden starring Kim Min Hee and Kim Tae Ree,Family Plan starring Kim Hye Soo,Princess Deokhye starring Son Ye Jin,Marital Harmony starring Shim Eun Kyung just to name a few.

  2. Jung Woo Sung is divinely beautiful inside and outside. Thank you God for blessing the world with this blessed human being. Thank you Woo Sung for becoming an actor and blessing us with great acting. And thank you for your great gift of humanity to the world, as well. Wish you all blessings and fulfillment in life. Love always, Cynthia
