Jang Hyuk Confirmed To Star As Lead Of New Action Film
Jang Hyuk is confirmed to return with a new action film!
The actor has been cast in the upcoming film “The Child Who Deserves to Die” (literal title), which will be directed by Choi Jae Hoon of “The Swordsman.” The film is based on a novel of the same name written by Bang Jin Ho and tells a story about a retired killer who gets swept up in a case while using violence to protect an adolescent girl he suddenly becomes in charge of. Jang Hyuk will be plying Eui Kang, who once used to be a professional killer but is now enjoying a leisurely life. The actor will deliver catharsis to viewers with the film’s refreshing and thrilling action.
Jang Hyuk shared, “The role of Eui Kang that I’ve taken on is a character who seems dry on the outside but is fiery on the inside. I hope the process of him overcoming his trauma and changing the messed up environment is portrayed in a refreshingly straightforward manner, and I’m thinking a lot about ways to show a diverse and new style of action since the genre is action. I’m working hard to prepare for an action film in which I can present a new and fresh style, so please anticipate it a lot.”
“The Child Who Deserves to Die” will begin filming in June.
