Taking cues from the pages of history is debut director Lee Won-Tae for the new film, Man Of Will. Such is the title now branded on the most recent poster featuring actor Cho Jin-Woong in the principle role of Kim Chang-Soo who saw his rise as a leading figure in the fight for Korean independence at the turn of the last century after landing for murdering a Japanese man who partook in Empress Myeongseong’s assassination.
The first official teaser trailer is also out, (currently branded with the title, Commander Kim Chang-Soo, so we’ll likely see something different in the marketing if the title on the poster sticks) and for a freshman director with only two credits as screenwriter and producer, Man Of Will looks like a solid period drama. Cho is joined by actors Jeong Man-Sik, Jung Jin-Young, Lee Seo-Won, Kwak Dong-Yeon, Yoo Seung-Mok and Shin Jung-Keun for the film’s October 19 release. Take a look!
