First posters and trailer for Crying Man

From gentleman to killer — Jang Dong-gun (A Gentleman’s Dignity) stars in the upcoming movie Crying Man as a professional assassin who makes a fatal mistake. When the mob/crime organization/bad guys contact him to correct his error and carry out one last hit, Kim Min-hee (Temperature of Love) is the target. We were told in the past that our killer falls for his target, but in the latest promotional material, it’s only mentioned that he becomes conflicted by his final job. Throwing another wrench into the possible-yet-already-ill-fated love story, Jang Dong-gun appears to have gunned down someone close to Kim Min-hee.

In the posters, Jang Dong-gun’s tagline is, “I committed a mistake I shouldn’t have,” while Kim Min-hee’s is seemingly directed to Jang Dong-gun and states, “I’ll kill you.” Yep, the probability of a new budding romance (or at least a reciprocated love) is low. Although, Kim Min-hee melting the heart of a cold-hearted murderer is certainly possible. Or perhaps she was a former flame and his blunder was that he killed a loved one of hers — we’ll have to watch to find out.

The trailer is visually captivating and thrilling, but we wouldn’t have expected any less from director Lee Jung-bum, who directed Won Bin in 2010’s hit, Ajusshi (or The Man From Nowhere). You can tell production had a pretty decent budget to work with (although a minor gripe: from a distance, the tattoo on Jang Dong-gun’s back looks like it says “… Crack Whore” — I get the need to make him seem hardcore, but that seems like an unusual choice). The preview is filled with gunfire, explosions, and sultry Bond-esque music — this is a genre Lee Jung-bum is comfortable with, and one he does well. The movie is slated for a June release.

LOL!. Sometimes non-English speaking countries don't make the best choices is things like that. One of the funniest I recall was when Lee Hi's 1,2,3,4 song video first came out, there was a fake wall behind her with graffiti in English on it - and the graffiti had a lot of four-letter words not exactly suitable for a 16 year old girls' song :)

I like the posters, but what's with his eyelashes in the main poster ? I think they look too stylized or too feminine.

Such beautiful eyelashes to die for. Wonder if they are all his own?
He sure looked pretty in AGD, but kinda in a conventional way. This is edgy. It gets my attn.

I think it's a clever shot. The incongruence between his tattooed hand and those looong eyelashes and downward gaze (suggesting sensitivity) is striking.

His lashes always look like that. Maybe they're natural.

Almost sounds like The Crying Freeman (1995) with Mark Dacascos. Do they based on the same manga?

Sorry, double post.

Title is similar, and the plot sounds close enough to the plot of the manga. Though I seem to remember the tattoo being a lot prettier, some kind of chinese dragon if I remember correctly. This movie also doesn't seem to pursue the whole triad storyline, which became the focus of the manga.

Anyhow, no matter how many films and dramas I watch, korean assassination schools still don't appear to teach the whole "don't get a tattoo if you don't want to get caught later" thing.

Many theaters in big cities run Korean film festivals. It's necessary to pay attn and keep track.

A drama called Big man, movie named crying man, wouldn't be surprised if they have a reality show called laughing man.

Opening line, in English, is "You fucked it up." That's an interesting way to start a trailer that might be shown on television.

Love her! The trailer doesn't exactly grab me, but I'm excited for the actors.

Another Mad Soul Child collab for the title song, I see. "Dear" from The Man From Nowhere was so perfect, and this new track sounds just as good.

I liked "Dear" as well, but I'm worried that, in tone at least, it's getting too derivative of "Ahjussi." Gritty, dark and somber; conflicted killer who wants to leave or is being unwillingly dragged back into a life of assassination/danger; samey theme song, etc.

Does it say, "I'm Crack Whore"? Where the hell is the "A" and why would they think, "Ya know what would be badass? If on his back he had a tattoo that said 'I'm Crack Whore.'" How did someone say yes to that? I wanna know the thought behind it cause it is mind boggling to me. If anything that makes him look weak not hard.

Basically in Korea if you have a tattoo, you're a gangster and hella scary no matter what it says.

The trailer looks pretty interesting and the use of English definitely catches my attention, as well as the music. I'll put it on my list for sure.

This director really know how to pick the most beautiful actor in Korea. Won Bin is soooooooo handsome in Ahjussi that I can't help but admire him on every scene he in. And now, Jang Dong Gun with Jang Dong Gun too I think I will
