If you haven’t yet taken hold of the name Don Lee at any point in the last several years, consider yourselves missing out. Following credits in hits such as Train To Busan and Champion and with Along With The Gods: The Last 49 Days opening on Wednesday, the musclebound actor is back in the new action comedy adventure, The Soul-Mate, from director Jo Won-Hee in his second film in eight years.
Patrol officer, Tae-jin, gets involved in a freak accident while investigating a case, and his soul gets separated from the body. He is desperate to solve the case and return to his beloved girlfriend, but there isn’t much he can do as a wandering spirit. Miraculously, Tae-jin discovers someone who can see him, but it’s none other than his archenemy, Jang-su who runs a Judo dojo. An inevitable comedy ensues as Tae-jin and Jang-su get entangled in the case.
The film is also titled Wonderful Ghost depending on where you look but we’ll see which direction CJ Entertainment goes upon the film’s release in September.
Don Lee is joined by nominal TV star Kim Young-Kwang along with The Treacherous actress Lee Yoo-Young and Lee’s fellow cohort from The Outlaws, actor Choi Gwi-Hwa.
