In “Pirates,” mountain brigand Jang Sa Jung’s (Kim Nam Gil)’s descends to the sea and joins forces with female pirate Yeo Wol (Son Ye Jin) to catch the ghost whale that swallowed Joseon’s Royal Seal. This action sageuk will be a refreshing change for Son Ye Jin, and she will also be reuniting with her “Shark” co-star Kim Nam Gil. The two were also caught up in dating rumors earlier on this year. Lee Seok Hoon, who worked on movies “The Two Faces of My Girlfriend” and “Dancing Queen,” will be directing “Pirates.”
The stills from “Pirates” show Kim Nam Gil drawing a bow, Son Ye Jin with her band of pirates, Yoo Hae Jin providing some comic relief while on the run, and Sulli with her cute eye-smile. Other supporting actors, Lee Kyung Young, with a well-weathered, scarred face and dressed in villain’s garb, and Oh Dal Soo, bound by thick ropes and a battered face, also appear in the stills.
“Pirates” is expected to be released in the first half of 2014.
