Actor Jang Hyuk revealed some behind-the-scene stories of the movie “The Killer: A Girl Who Deserves to Die”.
Jang Hyuk, who will return with the movie “The Killer: A Girl Who Deserves to Die”, guested on the June 28th broadcast of SBS PowerFM’s “2 O’Clock Escape Cultwo Show” and had various talks.
Jang Hyuk shared, “With the movie ‘The Killer’ this time, I participated in planning and action designing”, explaining why the work is more meaningful to him.
Introducing the movie, he said, “My character is a retired killer who is enjoying his normal life leisurely. One day, his wife goes on a trip with her friend, and the friend’s daughter was left at home for him to take care of. While caring for the little girl, an incident occurs and he is accused of kidnapping. The whole movie is about the process of him finding the little girl”. In “The Killer: A Girl Who Deserves to Die”, Jang Hyuk plays the role of retired killer Ui-gang.
In addition, regarding the news that his best friends Cha Tae-hyun and Son Hyun-joo will also appear in the movie, Jang Hyuk confessed, “The two actually played cameo roles, but these characters are necessary people for important scenes so they had many screen times. We needed someone to do killer’s things like using weapons and cleaning up the mess. Their roles are like that. I cast them by myself.”
Receiving the question “If you have a fight with Kim Jong-kook, who will win?”, Jang Hyuk said, “We already agreed that I would lose”. When asked if he would cast Kim Jong-kook for an action movie, Jang Hyuk said, “I’ve already thought about doing something together with him next time”. In addition, when asked, “A villain or a colleague, what role will suit Kim Jong-kook more?”, Jang Hyuk laughed and said, “Someone who betrays others.”
Meanwhile, action movie “The Killer: A Girl Who Deserves to Die” centers around a professional killer Ui-gang, who was enjoying his relaxing retirement life, chasing mysterious men who mess with him without hesitation. It will premiere simultaneously in Korea and North America on July 17th.
