SUL plays Jae-ho, an inmate who sets the rules in a prison while IM co-stars as Hyeon-su, a young hooligan who arrives in prison but refuses to comply with the natural order.
Last year, SUL starred opposite another new face in the Korean War action-comedy The Long Way Home (2015) with YEO Jin-gu and the actor will next be seen in the thrillers Lucid Dream and Memories of a Murderer.
Member of the popular K-pop band ZE:A, IM made his big screen debut as a supporting actor in the smash hit drama The Attorney (2013) with SONG Kang-ho and was seen opposite KO Asung in the Korean War drama A Melody to Remember.
Joining the leads in the cast are Collective Invention (2015) actor KIM Hee-won, JEON Hye-jin of The Throne (2015) and Inside Men (2015) villain LEE Gyoung-young. Director BYUN’s previous films include the indie The Beat Goes On (2012) and the romantic comedy Whatcha Wearin’ (2012).
CJ Entertainment will release the film next year.
