Kim Myung Min And Megan Fox Cast In Upcoming Korean War Film
Kim Myung Min and Megan Fox have been confirmed for upcoming war film “Jangsa-ri 9.15” (tentative title).
“Jangsa-ri 9.15” will be a war film that follows the events that took place on September 15, 1950 in the Battle of Jangsa, which took place as a demonstration operation to ensure the success of the Battle of Inchon led by United Nations peacekeepers and General MacArthur.
Megan Fox will be taking on the role of Marguerite Higgins, a war correspondent of the New York Herald Tribune who is a legendary figure who helped request aid for Korea from the international community through her coverage of the Korean War. She was also the first woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for her book, “War In Korea.”
The actress stated, “I was drawn to Marguerite Higgins, and it was a film I wanted to participate in, even if I had to move my scheduled around,” and “I plan to focus all of my energy into making my portrayal of Marguerite Higgins as realistic as possible, watching documentaries and doing research on her history.” The actress has been in talks for months to confirm her appearance, and she plans to film her scenes between December and January.
Kim Myung Min will be playing task force commander Lee Myung Heum, who risks his life in order to save the lives of student soldiers. He formed a guerrilla unit to take on the Battle of Jangsa, and he led a successful operation fueled by a love for his country and a sense of responsibility for the soldiers who were put under his command.
The film will be directed by Kwak Kyung Taek, and filming will begin in October of this year.
