Song Joong Ki Is A North Korean Defector Struggling To Survive In “My Name Is Loh Kiwan”

Netflix has released a new sneak peek of Song Joong Ki’s upcoming film “My Name is Loh Kiwan”!

Based on Cho Haejin’s novel “I Met Loh Kiwan,” “My Name is Loh Kiwan” tells the love story of North Korean defector Loh Kiwan (Song Joong Ki) and professional shooter Marie (Choi Sung Eun).

The newly released stills capture the difficult journey of Loh Kiwan, who arrives in Belgium clinging to his last shred of hope. Before she passed away, Loh Kiwan’s mother told him, “You need to survive,” and it is those words that drive him to escape alone to Belgium, hoping to start a new life.

However, once he finds himself in a foreign country where he can’t speak the language, Loh Kiwan struggles to prove his identity and obtain the refugee status he needs in order to start anew. Although each day is a challenge for him as an outsider who knows no one and has nothing, Loh Kiwan’s fierce determination to survive shines through in his burning gaze.

Meanwhile, Marie—a shooter who competed on the Belgian national team—suffers her own heartbreak after the death of her mother. In contrast to the impressive focus she exhibits while shooting, Marie’s life falls apart once she loses her reason to live.

However, Marie winds up meeting Loh Kiwan in her darkest hour, and the two unexpectedly find comfort in one another.

Song Joong Ki commented, “I found the story of two people whose lives are polar opposites meeting and comforting one another both appealing and refreshing.”

Meanwhile, Choi Sung Eun remarked, “[‘My Name is Loh Kiwan’] is a film that has many layers. Searching for one’s basic rights, the determination to survive, love for humanity.”

“My Name is Loh Kiwan” will premiere on March 1.
