The Unjust has strong domestic opening

2010/11/12 | 263 views | Permalink | Source

"The Unjust", a new high-voltage thriller from "The City of Violence" director Ryoo Seung-wan, topped the Korean box office after opening Oct 28 nationwide. Over its 3-day opening weekend to Oct 31 it grossed US $4.35 million, playing on 572 screens.

Starring top lead HWANG Jeong-min and the director's younger brother, Ryoo Seung-bum, the film delves into corrupt practices by individuals within the Korean justice system. It is the first time director Ryoo has worked with material written for him.

Ryoo is considered one of Korea's top directors starting with his breakthrough debut "Die Bad" (2000) to his 2002 feature "No Blood, No Tears" and follow-up hits "Arahan" (2003) and "Crying Fist" (2004). The film is his fifth collaboration with his younger brother, a popular lead actor in many Korean features including last year's "No Mercy".
