Jang Hyuk will make a comeback in the action film “The Killer: A Girl Who Deserves To Die.”
On June 8th, the press conference for “The Killer: A Girl Who Deserves To Die” (directed by Choi Jae-hoon, produced by ASCENDIO, hereinafter “The Killer”) was streamed live online. Director Choi Jae-hoon and actors Jang Hyuk and Lee Seo-young spoke at the event about their work.
“The Killer” tells the story of Ui-gang (Jang Hyuk), a retired killer who becomes entangled in a case while using violence to protect an adolescent girl he is suddenly in charge of. Bruce Khan, a Hong Kong and Hollywood action actor, and Lee Seo-young, who predicted a strong screen debut with this work, teamed up as Yu-ri, a member of the organization, and Yoon-ji, an ordinary high school student with many hidden scars because she has no one she can rely on, raising expectations for a high-quality K-action film.
Jang Hyuk, who has a burning passion for acting sequences, shockingly revealed what happened during filming: “I nearly died filming an action scene.” “I wanted to create a performance with the action team, so I participated in the action design,” he explained. I considered what would make the action unique and interesting. Normally, when doing an action scene, you’re bound to breathe, but this time I didn’t. “I wanted to convey a real feeling rather than show the action in a theatrical manner, that’s why, while filming the action scene, I nearly died. I was out of breath because I had to finish it quickly and without stopping to breathe. As a result, the most comfortable time to shoot was during post-production. It was relaxing because I didn’t have to concentrate on my breathing.”
In July, “The Killer: The Child Who Deserves to Die” will be released simultaneously in Korea and North America.
