Watch: BTOB’s Minhyuk Transforms Into A Swordsman In Preview For Upcoming Film
A special preview has been released for the upcoming historical action film “The Swordsman” (literal title)!
Starring BTOB’s Minhyuk, Jang Hyuk, Jung Man Sik, and more, the new film explores the stories of swordsmen in Joseon during the Ming-Qing transition period. Minhyuk makes his big screen debut as the king’s bodyguard Kyeom Sa Bok, who fails to protect the king after being attacked by anti-government forces. Feeling guilty, he turns his back on the world.
On September 15, a video of Minhyuk’s action scenes was revealed. In the clip, Kyeom Sa Bok asks Min Seung Ho (played by Jung Min Sik), “A warrior like you can only do this much?” The clip then shows off Minhyuk’s fighting skills as his character faces off against Min Seung Ho. The preview ends, congratulating Minhyuk on his discharge from the military.
Director Choi Jae Hoon had nothing but praise for Minhyuk. He commented, “Minhyuk is a great actor who has a strong impact that fills the frame when he appears onscreen with good facial expressions and gazes.”

“The Swordsman” premieres September 23.
