Hwang Jung Min, Jung Hae In, Oh Dal Soo, And More Confirmed For Upcoming “Veteran” Sequel
The upcoming “Veteran” sequel has confirmed its cast!
Back in 2015, it was confirmed that hit film “Veteran” was gearing up for a sequel after garnering over 13.41 million moviegoers.
Helmed by director Ryu Seung Wan of “The Battleship Island,” “Escape from Mogadishu,” and more, “Veteran” is a crime action film that follows the story of a veteran investigation team chasing after an arrogant third generation chaebol. The first film starred Hwang Jung Min, Yoo Ah In, Yoo Hae Jin, Oh Dal Soo, and more.
The sequel will also be produced by director Ryu Seung Wan, who will be joined by original cast members Hwang Jung Min, Oh Dal Soo, Jang Yoon Joo, Oh Dae Hwan, and Kim Shi Hoo. Jung Hae In, who was revealed to be in talks for the film this past summer, has also been confirmed to appear.
After showcasing a variety of powerful acting performances in works like “The Spy Gone North,” “Hostage: Missing Celebrity,” and “Narco-Saints,” Hwang Jung Min will be reprising his role as detective Seo Do Chul. With even more experience under his belt now, Seo Do Chul will thrive in his role as a seasoned veteran and showcase even more thrilling action alongside his longtime co-workers of the investigation team.
Also reprising their roles are Oh Dal Soo as Team Leader Oh, Jang Yoon Yoo as Detective Bong, Oh Dae Hwan as Detective Wang, and Kim Shi Hoo as Detective Yoon.
Jung Hae In, who recently starred in “Tune in for Love,” “Connect,” and “D.P.,” will newly join the cast as detective Park Sun Woo, the investigation team’s youngest member. As a newbie jumping into this veteran team, Jung Hae In will add novel tension and fun to the film through his role as Park Sun Woo.
On November 24, the cast and crew gathered for a script reading where they showcased their passionate determination and ambition. Director Ryu Seung Wan shared, “I’m aiming to showcase more powerful suspense and a different kind of excitement from the first film. Now that we’ve gathered in one place with all the staff and actors I can trust and depend on while working together, I’m even happier and we will do our best together.”
Hwang Jung Min added, “I’m excited and happy to meet the ‘Veteran’ team I worked with, as well as our new family members. This time too, the actors and staff will pour our energy out together and film diligently to greet you with a good film.”
“Veteran 2” will begin filming later this month.
