Rising young stars Kim Beom and Yoo Seung-ho will act side-by-side in the upcoming film "71". Feature film debutant JO Seung-hee will be at the helm.

The film is based on a true incident which took place in Pohang on 10 August 1950 when 71 young soldiers in training were facing hundreds of elite North Korean soldiers in a twelve hour battle.

Kim Beom became the heartthrob of many teenage girls through the popular sitcom "High Kick!". Since then, he played in the films "Hellcats" and "Death Bell".

YOO endeared audiences with his role of a spoilt city brat who is forced to live with his mute grandmother in the countryside in the film "The Way Home". His latest film is 2006's "Hearty Paws" ("Heart is....).

Auditions for the remaining roles are still in progress. Filming is scheduled for early 2009 and the film is expected to be released next year fall.
