Watch Choi Min-sik In Full Trailer For THE NEW WORLD

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
2013 will not see a finer cast assembled in Korea than director Park Hoon-jeong has gathered for upcoming crime drama The New World. How do I feel confident saying this of a film that releases in February, with most of the year yet to come? Simple: A better cast doesn't exist.

Park has gathered three of Korea's finest character actors to anchor his action thriller with Choi Min-sik (Oldboy, Crying Fist), Hwang Jeong-min (The Unjust, Private Eye) and Lee Jeong-jae (The Thieves, The Housemaid) front and center.

A detective infiltrates into one of the biggest gang organizations in the country and gets involved in a fight for the heir to the gang after the boss dies and in between the second in charge who trusts him with his life and the high police officials who think of him only as bait.
The first teaser for The New World arrived a week or so back and has now been followed by a full trailer. Check it below.

    I hesitate to disagree with you, but have you seen the cast of "The Berlin File" (another Korean film coming out soon)? Some pretty heavy hitters there too. Jeon Ji-hyun (aka Gianna Jun), Han Suk-Kyu, Ryoo Seung-bum, and Ha Jung-woo.

  • Definitely also a good cast there but Jeon Ji-hyun has been far from consistent through her career (when she's good she's great, but when she's off she's pretty horrible) and while I like Ryoo a LOT better than most seem to I would never put him in a category with these three guys. Though he does tend to do his best work when working with his brother (ie Crying Fist), so that bodes well.

    Well if we're talking just pure acting skills, then I personally think Lee Jung-jae is a bit lacking in that area, even compared to Ryoo. But maybe that's just me.
