I have to say, I’m pretty thrilled to see actor Lee Byung-Hun standing out so well in the last several years. The first I’d heard of him was in the live-action rendition of G.I. Joe in 2009 prior to its protracted sequel’s release in 2013 and it’s really exciting to see him take up action roles.
Here, he does just that with a dash of salt and pepper in his air as a crimeboss at the center of a massive fraud investigation opposite Woochi and Kundo actor Kang Dong-Won in his debut role as a detective in the new thriller, Master. The film opens this December a year after its announcement in 2015 from CJ E&M with Cold Eyes helmer Jo Eui-Seok directing, and actors and actresses Friend, The Great Legacy actor Kim Woo-Bin, Uhm Ji-Won, The Tunnel and Veteran co-star Oh Dal-Su and Assassination co-star Jin Kyung also starring.
The first official teaser aired this week, and it looks plenty solid. Check it out!
