Sector 7’s preview and poster

You’ve seen the stills of a tough-looking Ha Ji-won in sci-fi action blockbuster Sector 7 — now watch her in action in the movie’s new preview, where she battles some kind of mutant sea monster while out on an oil rig.

The movie concept admittedly isn’t too original or complicated — it’s positioned itself as a “Host at sea” and amped up the badass Ha Ji-won angle — but if they can sneak in some clever surprises, it could be a fun summer flick. I thought The Host was awesome and don’t expect this one to be nearly as good in story (too similar to escape the knockoff vibe), but for sheer action/octane, Sector 7 is going in with guns blazing — gnarly CG monsters, explosions, fierce hand-to-tentacle combat, 3-D camera work.

Other cast members include hard-bodied heartthrob Oh Ji-ho (Chuno), veteran Ahn Sung-ki (Fair Love), and funnyman Park Chul-min (Birth of the Rich, Partner) — but who are we kidding, it’s all about Ha Ji-won. With movies like Haeundae and…well…Haeundae, Ha is setting herself up to be Korea’s foremost (and possible only) female action star. (Kim Haneul, Kim So-yeon, Su Ae — they’ve had some moments, but are distant seconds.) She’s had a string of successes lately — Secret Garden, Haeundae, My Love By My Side — so anticipation is running high for her next project.

Directing is Kim Ji-hoon, who did war movie May 18 and also has another action movie on his plate, disaster film The Tower starring Sohn Ye-jin. Korea’s sure rife with disasters. Must be something in the water. (Bah-dum-ching! Heh, couldn’t resist.)

Sector 7 has already been sold abroad to four other countries. No release date yet, but it’s expected to come out in the summer.

The teaser remind me of a bit from Anaconda and one movie that I forgot the title. The setting at oil rig/lab at the sea with sharks or something.

I hope this will be aired at my country. We never have good K-Movie here.

The setting at oil rig/lab at the sea with sharks or something.

Deep Blue Sea is the one with the sharks - and a tasty Thomas Jane in a tight wet suit. The movie sticks out in my memory because I wasn't expecting the shark that rudely interrupted Samuel L. Jackson's inspirational speech.

And did I mention Thomas Jane looked good in a wetsuit?

I was thinking it reminds me of ALIEN. I loved those movies! This looks like mindless fun. With all the work I've been doing lately, I could use some of that. I hope I get a chance to see it.

I usually hate movies like these, but HJW looks like such a bad arse, I'll probably make an exception.

Ha Ji Won is a badass!!! I've always been a fan but now I got a huge crush on her.There is a definetely a need of more female action characters like Buffy and Ripley.

That is exactly what I had in mind when I saw the preview. She is the most awesome female action star from Asia.

Besides the fact that she's the only female on this oil rig and there's a sea monster attacking, this whole thing seems plausible(:

Aish, such a shame that I don't like sci-fi action films, I will probably just look for pretty stills of HJW and OJH when it comes out.

the poster looks awfully similar to the poster of Swallow the Sun btw.

Or she tried a music career back in 2002..she could have been a new Jang Nara..lol
Think we all glad she stuck to acting though.

BAD-ASS CHICK. Korea needs to do a female-centered action series (kind of like Buffy) and let her star in it.

I just saw the movie today! They aired it in California with subtitles. I'd have to say that I enjoyed it. I didn't think Ha Ji won's character would be so badass. I thought Oh Ji Ho would end up being the main lead. =.=
