Jo Seung-woo and Lee Byung-heon become political Insiders

Well I’m suddenly very interested in this movie. Lee Byung-heon (RED: The Legend, Masquerade) will be starring in the dark political thriller Insiders, and Jo Seung-woo (God’s Gift-14 Days) has just signed on to join him. That’s a hell of a match-up from two very charismatic actors; plus, there’s so much pretty, I don’t know where to look.

The movie is an adaption based on the webtoon Insiders from star writer Yoon Tae-ho (Misaeng, Moss), and will be directed by Woo Min-ho (Spies). The story is about the movers and shakers behind political corruption, in particular shedding light on how deep the corruption goes in all facets of society.

Lee Byung-heon plays the gangster employed by crooked politicians to do all their dirty work, and Jo Seung-woo has been cast to play a prosecutor who bends over when told to bend over, and covers up what he’s told to cover up. He’s described as the “corrupt politician’s sniper,” and I’ve seen enough dramas to believe that a prosecutor really is the best weapon that evil people in power could have. I guess two full dramas spent being a good guy means it’s time for Jo Seung-woo to flex his bad boy movie muscles again. I won’t complain, but after… more dramas, right?

Insiders starts shooting this summer for a release next year.

"I won’t complain, but after… more dramas, right?"

GF, I thought you learned your lesson about making vague wishes? Or was that JB?

Here, I fixed your wish:

"I won’t complain, but after… more dramas with HAPPY, NON-AMBIGUOUS ENDINGS, right?"

You're welcome. :)

After all your steadfast devotion to me... I thought you were always on my side for every role, but apparently you've moved on to ... to.... Ajusshi's. *Shakes head in disappointment*

And to think I was so close to saying "Marry me Mary"

Hey now, even POL's (prisoners of love) get the occasional day off for some soulful brooding in the sunlight.

Thanks very much GF for writing up and sharing the news. Have been excited about the project since April when it's first announced, a cool Korean project for LBH. Over the years, he's proven to have a knack choosing a good script. The Insiders somewhat have the aura of A Bittersweet Life but hope it'll be even more awesome.

JO SEUNG WOO =) <3

I was ecstatic yesterday when I first read the news and I still am^^

I am nearly through JSW's filmography and I need MORE of him! He is so good =) He delivers everytime (even in Horse Doctor which is a mess but he shines nevertheless^^)!
But yeah I'd love to see him in more dramas! I'm still not really over God's Gift :P

And then we get Lee Byung Hun as well?! Now I can't wait for 2015 to come xD

Oh and also... Prosecutor means JSW's gonna wear suits right? Because there's nothing hotter than JSW in a suit!

I've been so excited about this news since yesterday! However, most of the articles I've read said that JSW will be playing a prosecutor who is out to get the corrupt politicians instead of one who bends over backwards for them...I think that would be more interestibg since rivalry brings intense smoldering chemistry :D And yes, bring on the nice suits and hopefully great hairdos!

I'm so happy that he is going back to the big screen for some quality projects. I love Moss so I'm pretty sure this is going to be really good. Glad to see him co-star with another fine actor.

Reminds me of "Scandal". Although Season 1 for Scandal was great, I really dislike Season 3. I stopped midway and I doubt I will tune in to follow. The relationship between Olivia and Fitz is ridiculous (she needs to let the relationship go because she is too good for Fitz. He is such an a**).

Back to Jo Seung Woo, yah~ Will keep an eye on this. :)
