  • Off beat SHIN Ha-kyun Plays The Game


    SHIN Ha-kyun – one of Korea’s more daring and impressive actors – will next star in the thriller The Game alongside veteran actor BYEON Hui-bong. SHIN’s character – a poor artist – will be lured into a dark game involving a large sum of money and the exchange of bodies, made possible through technology. The film opens in January 2008.


    YUN In-ho (When I Turned Nine) directs and the cast also features LEE Hye-young (Low Life) and LEE Eun-sung (Dasepo Naughty Girls). BYEON played the grandfather of the girl who was taken by the monster in The Hos.


    SHIN played eye-catching supporting roles in popular films like PARK Chan-wook’s Joint Security Area, and Welcome to Dongmakgol. In addition, he has been outstanding in leading roles in critical acclaimed alternative films, portraying off beat characters, including No Mercy for the Rude and Save the Green Planet.
