[News] Jang Keun-suk to return to big screen with Kim Ki-duk’s film


SEOUL, May 22 (Yonhap) — Actor Jang Keun-suk will return to Korea’s big screen with award-winning director Kim Ki-duk’s new film, his management agency said Monday.

Tree J Co. said Jang has recently confirmed his appearance in “The Time of Humans.” It will be his first film in six years and first work with the auteur.

Kim’s 23rd feature film is about a journey to get to the root of human beings while testing the limits of human emotions, morality and ethics.

Jang, who will play alongside Ahn Sung-ki, one of the most established and respected actors in Korea, is said to show a different acting style in this film where he plays a cruel and cold-blooded character.

“It’s been a while since I did a film, and I am so honored to work with director Kim Ki-duk whom I respect,” the company quoted Jang as saying. “I’ve decided to join because it appealed to me to play the most instinctive side of human beings.”

The actor will start shooting at the end of this month.
South Korean singer and actor Jang Keun-suk arrives on the red carpet for the 1st International Film Festival and Awards Macao in Macao, China, on Dec. 26, 2016.
