Jo Jung-seok up to play Time Renegade

There’s very little concrete information about this new movie titled Time Renegade, but we do know that Jo Jung-seok (The Face Reader, You’re the Best Lee Soon-shin) is considering the project, and that’s enough to grab my interest.

The plot description for the melo film is rather vague but intriguing nonetheless: A man from a past time and a man from the present time struggle to change the fate of one woman. That’s literally all we get, but given the title, I can imagine that the crossing (bending? warping?) of time will be a key factor in saving that woman. Now if only we knew how time got crossed, or why the woman is in trouble, or who the men are, or how they’ll save her… But details, schmetails. Jo Jung-seok!

His reps were quick to clarify after the initial reports came out that he was considering Time Renegade, saying that he did receive the offer but is only considering it as one of several. He is currently focusing his efforts on his movie with Shin Mina, My Love, My Bride, after which he will begin his work on the stage musical Blood Brothers, which will run from June through September.

So while it’s too early to picture Jo Jung-seok breaking the rules of time and space to save a woman from some dire fate, we can hope the movie manages to make the most of its high-concept premise. Furthermore, it’s directed by Kwak Jae-yong of My Sassy Girl, The Classic, and Daisy, which raises my expectations for sweet melo romance.

Thank you JB for translate the news. It's funny using Google to know what exactly the title of the film. It was a busy year for him. King Wrath in theater for 6 days now and its already achieve 2 million viewers. So happy for him.
Btw, wonder who they will cast as leading lady? I know he still don't confirm but a girl can hope, you know. Hehehe.

That'd make for a costar swap -- since IU is in talks with ji hyun woo for trot lovers

Can i just say i am extremely proud and happy of where he's come now since his foray as earnest bodyguard during K2H days? He's successful nowadays straggling both film and movies and i am just so glad k-ent finally knew a talent when they saw one (in moments of its rarity) and gave this guy projects.

It's Jo Jung Seok. I'm pretty sure I will watch anything this man is in. So much love for him since What's Up/King 2 Hearts.

I am always impressed by how well he emotes. He is soooo good at it. And the trembling thing he does with his voice, when he gets emotional, *Sigh* That just kills me, and that gets to me.
I also love how truly humble he is behind the scenes. He does not seem to be interested in stealing the spotlight. He seems to just want to act, have good rapport with his colleagues, enjoy what he is doing, and go about his life. The actor who played his assistant in YATBLSS would greet him with a hug, and that was so cute.

Having Jo Jung Seok is enough details for now.. and the premise sounds interesting. We haven't seen him in a long time...

Oppa, you said you'd do a drama this year....! T^T

"Unfortunately" it sounds interesting (and I'm a sucker for time travel stuff), so I actually hope he'll do it, haha.
I just hope there won't be too much melo (and absolutely no dying!) because I still can't even bear to watch the last episodes of K2H again as I'm afraid of death of dehydration...

But... Next year a drama then, ok? Please? *makes puppy eyes*
