Thriller film Psychic releases character posters and stills
by | September 17, 2010 | 58 Comments

New posters and stills are out for the Go Soo/Kang Dong-won thriller Psychic, which pits the two actors against each other in a battle of wills. Er, minds. Kang Dong-won plays the titular psychic who can exert powers over others, while Go Soo plays the only person who is immune to him.

Though the premise plays with supernatural thriller elements, this movie reportedly goes for a more realistic vibe than, say, Hollywood sci-fi flicks of the same stripe.

This is technically the debut feature film for Kim Min-seok, but the man is not inexperienced: He was part of the directing units for two hugely successful films, gritty noir A Bittersweet Life and action-packed creature feature The Host. He also wrote the screenplay for and was assistant director on “kimchi Western” The Good, The Bad, The Weird, and worked on the planning of blockbuster sports comedy Take Off. Would that we all had such credits before our “debuts.”

Psychic will open on November 11.

(You know what’s hilarious about the below “making of” clip? The whole first part is just people talking about how beautiful Kang Dong-won and Go Soo are. Not that I blame ’em.)

    not liking KDW’s hair…but looking forward to the movie…

    • 2.1 Mary

      I agree. The hair looks very ahjumma-ish.

      • 2.1.1 facetious

        Curly hair just doesn’t work for most Asian guys. πŸ˜› Go Soo is looking amazing though πŸ˜€

    • 2.2 gala

      but dude still looks so yummilicious.

      i’m wishing for the impossible but i do wish KDW films one drama before he enlists. but yeah… so not probable with the way his career path has taken him. oh better yet, hope he films a rom-com at least leave me some fluff.

      jeon woochi was his best role, imo!!!

      • 2.2.1 UJ

        i watched jeon woochi a week back i guess and i adored him in that role…

      • 2.2.2 oh! tht! chick!

        i know some pre MS fanservice would be very very nice KDW sshi!! πŸ˜€ please a rom com before enlisting we beg of u! come to think of it he’s only done a hand full of them, 1% and too beautiful to lie from wht i know…its all been crazy wack jobs only for the most part and we’ve enjoyed them! but its time we demand nay nay we NEED a rom com!

      ergo! not liking KDW’s cury hair at all. the first thing i noticed about that poster: the hair!

  3. mskololia

    Sounds like something to watch on DVD.

    “Kang Dong-won plays the titular psychic who can exert powers over others, while Go Soo plays the only person who is immune to him. ” This also reminds me of Dark City…..

    • 3.1 Melissa

      actually it sounds like Edward and Bella

      • 3.1.1 Nana

        It really does remind me of Twilight’s Edward and Bella. But thank god, it isn’t Twilight! I would love to see some chemistry between GS and KDW!

        • monchaichan

          i agree. tg it isnt twilight. shivers. GS and KDW in the same screen as leading men. laskjdlakjdf melting.

      • 3.1.2 monchaichan

        omg r u me?? hahaha

      • 3.1.3 mskololia

    they look amazing! I don’t like KDW’s hair…but it surprises me how he never ages!

    • 4.1 fionnula

      Hmm… I wonder if he’ll end up being the Korean Will Smith. If you think about it Will Smith is even looking better the older he gets. A total Benjamin Button?!

  5. dyane

    Go Soo waving at the end of the clip is so, so cute.*lol*

    Hehe in a culture obsessed with looks can we say we’re surprised by this?

  7. bluebunny

    2 good looking guys…nothing to complain about…but watching KDW makes it think of that guy who plays Ma Jun on BK! They look soo alike! LOL!

  8. Kender

    KDW’s hair looks so fluffy. *_* I want to pet it.

    I’m still waiting for an official trailer, but so far I’m intrigued. Mostly because I have an unreasonable love of KDW. <333 (MINE. I WILL FIGHT ALL OF YOU.)

  9. deannadsc

    Both look so hot & gorgeous…but Go Soo, OMG!!! he’s an absolute eye candy!!! swooooooning!!!!

  10. 10 Anonymous

    EEK! kdw in an ahjussi perm!! hahah he looks adorable still.

    i hope this movie makes it to american theaters!!!

  11. 11 Mana

    Woo… its a day before my B-day. A plane ticket so Seoul would be the best gift everrrrr. πŸ™‚

  12. 12 alyssia

    hahha. My lord.. You trying to look boyish Kang Dong Won. Seriously that does not look good on you. You are too sexy for that. I think curly hair might suit Song Jong ki but not you babe!

    Why does he always pick weird psychological impair roles! Kang Dong Won is due for army soon. I hope he does a drama before he leaves.

  13. 13 stephanie

    I so love both of them…yahhhhhhh….can’t wait!!!

  14. 14 Isabella

    Ughhhh… can they be any less hot? (T_T) *dies*

  15. 15 momosan

    right clicky….KDW and Go Soo….such cuties. Sigh. And I’ll be watching that when it comes out on DVD, but I’m such a sucker for KDW.

    • 15.1 celestialorigin

      Me, too! Shall we form KDW fan club? Anyhow. It looks totally interesting, my cup of tea, so to speak. Can’t wait to see it!

      • 15.1.1 mean

        count me in…pretty pls.?!

        thank u always JB πŸ™‚

      • 15.1.2 momosan

        Well, I am certainly a fan! And there are enough of us for a club. However, if someone has already called MINE on him, then we’ll have to watch our backs. 😎

        • Kender

          Although I called “MINE” on him many years ago, I’ll still let you guys have your fan club. πŸ˜‰

  16. 16 cheekbones

    Beautiful pics of beautiful men ! And a very intriguing-looking movie.

    Though, I’m not too crazy about Dong-won’s hair……

  17. 17 Rickshot

    go soo’s puppy dog eyes can melt icebergs.

  18. 18 noon0201

    Go Soo is hot as ever, but somehow i think Kang Dong Won reminds me of T.O.P (Choi Seung Hyun) from Big Bang, the eyes? Nevertheless, this should be on the ‘to watch’ list after ‘Cyrano Dating Agency’.

  19. 19 Anh

    go soo… omg! melt!

  20. 20 anagoshiki

    I used to have issues with KDW’s eyes but now, they are what makes him more attractive to me. And it doesn’t hurt that he’s a good actor. Absolutely adore him!

  21. 21 XCB

    the characters slightly like the japanese drama about 2 guys with power to kill and power to heal.

  22. 22 rainerust

    KDW FTW! Although I’m really not liking the hair; still the boy is gorgeous he can do no wrong. Hehe, is it any wonder all the people in the front just spoke about how the two men were so good-looking? Not to mention how they can act. Can’t wait for this movie to come out. Will watch it just for GS and KDW. (Yes, call me shallow)

  23. 23 oh! tht! chick!

    man dont u just fell like running ur hands thru’ kang dong won’s hair! my hands are so itching to do tht! in fact i think i saw some1 do it in the vid! i soo soo want to be the coordi person for this movie its not even funny! to dress up kdw and gs in one movie is coordi heaven no? πŸ˜€

  24. 24 Keylye

    I love the third poster where KDW has his hand covering half of his face. He still manages to look so intense. This movie definitely has two very good-looking leads. ^_^

    • 24.1 mskololia

      Just saw Mother….and the son did the same thing.

      Loved that movie btw….omo, it was sooo good (I’m buying it). I have high expectation on this one just based on the article, which tells me just enough.

  25. 25 meia46

    The third picture….. just perfect. <3

  26. 26 Saavi

    KDW looks like “L” here…i like his voice the most more than his apperance..

  27. 27 vrosemarie

    Something is wrong with me. I see two hot men together and my first thought is yaoi!!! But the movie looks…electric.

  28. 28 Beng

    2 great actors, true hallyu stars. their eyes alone can act. the posters conveys a lot of feelings.

    Love them both!

  29. 29 [email protected]

    Kang Dong Won with curly hair still looks good, since he plays a psychic it gives him a more psychic feel if thats even possible lol, Their so hot Go soo and KDG if I would ever meet them in real life I would give them both a slow long tight hug so it can last in my mind forever lol

  30. 30 Jane

    Feeling the twilight vive… *shivers*
    Still, what might be the reason he’s immune XD Kawaii!

  31. 31 lady

    KDW and GO SOO OMG !!!so gorgeous !! But to me Go Soo is my love.

  32. 32 Aly

    i never heard of a bad guy psychic with a perm

  33. 33 lovesydoodle

    OMG! they are so gorgeous!

  34. 34 Ran

    These stills are so beautiful.

  35. 35 Paty

    I think KDW’s hairstyle will come out as suitable for his character. He’s a psychic afterwall, the perm makes him look a bit more “airy”.

  36. 36 luv_KimRaeWon

    Go Soo looks so hot.. KDW looked better but maybe this hairstyle suits his role in the movie.

  37. 37 allen5371

    saw the pics and i turned into a file of goo..soo hot!

  38. 38 Carinne

    Eh~ the guy from Temptation of the Wolves; I happen to watch that movie again over the wkend… made me bawl with snot yo-yo-ing under my nose. Oh yeah, it was a pretty sight! And before this movie, I played A Millionaire’s First Love. Do I need to say more?

    Bawl fest, care to join?

    Really anticipating for this movie to release.

  39. 39 okay

    two hot guys!;)

  40. 40 Toya

    The movie was sick and worth the watch, for anyone who hasn’t seen it and came back to post here.

  41. 41 NewKDramaAddict

    Watching it now on You Tube. Fantastic! My kind of flick!
