Last year’s action film “Revenger” saw stuntman/action co-ordinator Bruce Khan step in front of the camera for a leading role. This year, we have another stuntman and martial arts director taking the leap from behind-the-scenes to leading role with Jung Doo-hong, who stars in Ha Won-joon’s action film “Fist and Furious”.

Synopsis

A former violent detective with a knife in his head and a sneaky materialistic VJ collaborate!

Freelance VJ Gook-hyeon is a North Korean defector who is looking for news when he comes across Ki-man, a former detective who lives with a knife stuck in his head. Ki-man is living off scraps until Gook-hyeon convinces him he would help him get revenge on Jeong Tae-hwa, a drug mob boss who killed his partner.

While they track down Jeong Tae-hwa, they meet Seol-lan, who is looking for her missing sister, Song-hwa, who is Jeong Tae-hwa’s mistress. All three of them head to a deserted island in the South.

Jung Doo-hong has had a rich career as a stuntman and martial arts co-ordinator, starting with Im Kwon-taek’s “The General’s Son” back in 1990 and working on some of the best action films to come out of the country along the way, including but not limited to “The City of Violence”, “No Blood No Tears”, “Silmido”, “Taegukgi” and “A Bittersweet Life”. He will be joined by Ryu Deok-hwan (“Default”, “Nobody’s Daughter Haewon”) and Seo Eun-ah (“Roman Holiday”, “Missing”) in the film. It releases in South Korean cinemas on July 11th, 2019.
