Hwang Jung-min, So Ji-sub and Song Joong-ki to star in "Battleship"

Actors Hwang Jung-min, So Ji-sub and Song Joong-ki are starring in the movie "The Battleship Island".


"The Battleship Island" is the story of 400 or so Joseon people who risk their lives to escape The Battleship Island which is where they were forcefully taken to during the Japanese Invasion.

"The Battleship Island" is directed by Ryoo Seung-wan who thought of the idea of using the hidden history of the Joseon people in this movie.

Actor Hwang Jung-min who holds a record of 35 million audiences with the movies "Ode to My Father" (14,261,582), "Veteran" (12,414,009) and "The Himalayas" (7,243,039) takes on the role of Lee Kang-ok who is tricked into being taken to The Battleship Island. He believes he is being taken to Japan to protect his daughter but in the end he becomes the daring father who will do anything to survive and protect his child.

So Ji-sub who made a short appearance in the movie "The Throne" and recently starred in the drama "Oh My Venus", takes on the role of Choi Chil-seong, the best fighter in Kyeongseong. He causes trouble every now and then in The Battleship Island because of his hot temper but he is sincere on the inside.

Song Joong-ki's first comeback movie is going to be "The Battleship Island" as he takes on the role of Park Moo-yeong, a solider for national independence who sneaks into The Battleship Island to save a key person in the independence movement. Song Joong-ki is prepared to show a whole new side of him that's different from the role he played in "A Werewolf Boy".

Hwang Jung-min is working with director Ryoo Seung-wan for the third time now. So Ji-sub and Song Joong-ki are only just beginning. "The Battleship Island" will feature the top actors of the Korean movie industry and is set to release in 2017.
