[News] Lee Min Ho devotes himself to action for ‘Gangnam 1970’
Actor Lee Min-ho will display fierce action skills in the upcoming film “Gangnam 1970.”
“Lee devoted himself to his action scenes without a single complaint, enduring all minor injuries. Thanks to his efforts, his action scenes turned out to be successful,” the action director for the film was quoted as saying.
In the noir film, Lee plays the role of Jong-dae, who spent his childhood in an orphanage and gets involved in the lives of gangsters with his friend Yong-ki, played by Kim Rae-won.
The movie portrays the two men’s desire for money and friendship in Seoul’s Gangnam district in the 1970s, when the region began changing due to a boom in real estate investment.
Due to the 27-year-old actor’s worldwide popularity, the distribution rights for his first lead-role movie have been sold in 11 Asian countries. The film is scheduled to be released in January.
