Park Bo Gum and Lee Jun Ki Among K-stars Out in Force for First Big Movie Premiere of 2023 in Spy Thriller Phantom

I thought maybe this movie was a dud hence it’s early January premiere date but it’s chock full of big name stars and now even more big name stars are out in force to support at the VIP premiere this week. K-thriller movie Phantom is based on the Chinese novel The Sound of the Wind which was adapted to a hit Chinese movie The Message in 2009 so it’s been a long while. Phantom starts Sol Kyung Gu, Honey Lee, Park So Dam, Park Hae Soo, and Seo Hyun Woo in a cat-and-mouse game to suss out a mysterious spy by locking all the suspects in a snow-locked chateau. With such a big cast its no surprise the VIP attendance was also expansive with Park Bo Gum, Lee Jun Ki, Jung Woo Sung, Minho, Ong Seung Woo, and many more all showing up to support and hopefully watch a fun movie. I also swear that Park Bo Gum remains the derpiest derp that ever derped and he’s so open about it lol luv him!
