2012 Report Card: Idol Actors in Movies
Kim Dong Wan in “Deranged” : Veteran Idol + Veteran Actor = Strong Performance
The movie “Deranged” isn’t Kim Dong Wan’s first screen role. In 2004, he starred in the Taekwondo film “Roundkick.”
In the science fiction horror thriller “Deranged,” Kim Dong Wan plays a homicide detective who works with his older brother to save his family from a parasite that control people’s brains. Although he had to act alongside veteran actor Kim Myung Min, Kim Dong Wan held his own weight and gave a commendable performance.
The box office results for this film was surprising. Although “Roundkick” only had 40 thousand viewers, “Deranged” collected 4.5 million viewers. It is a shame that it did not hit 5 million, for Kim Dong Wan had promised that if the movie received that many viewers he would do one-handed push-ups in the middle of Seoul.
