Now, if this isn’t the very definition of a tease: These newly released images from Miracle, the upcoming movie starring Kim Kang-woo and Kim Bum, aren’t even official stills but a glimpse at the raw footage. Just enough to pique curiosity, but not enough to really satisfy.
These two pics were uploaded to Kim Kang-woo’s Twitter account, and depict a (camera-phone?) capture of the film camera’s monitor. So you’re basically seeing the Kim vs. Kim face-off through at least three screens: the camera filming the scene, filtered through a cell phone, filtered through your computer.
The movie is about a violent crimes detective (Kim Kang-woo) who is investigating a child disappearance and possible murder when he comes across a suspicious young graffiti artist (Kim Bum) and thinks he’s the culprit. The wording on that means he’s wrong about the suspect, though it’ll probably take a while for him to figure that he’s barking up the wrong tree. Hence our photos.
The film is described as a fantasy thriller, which seems like an odd distinction. I’d say it’s probably better referred to as a paranormal crime-mystery, because Kim Bum’s graffiti art depicts murders prior to their occurrence (like Heroes meets Minority Report?). Or maybe like a paranormal Itaewon Murder Case, in the way both movies pit bulldog cop versus youthful suspect, with hot young stars cast as said subjects.
As for Miracle, despite the vague and misleading title (I certainly don’t get crime thriller from it, do you?), I do enjoy both Kim Kang-woo and Kim Bum when they’re being intense, so I’ll keep an eye on this one. The movie is currently filming (obviously) and plans to release later this year.
