Lee Seon-kyun gets angry for new movie role

Lee Seon-kyun is lining up his next project after enjoying a successful run with his action thriller A Hard Day earlier this year, and this time takes on the titular character in Angry Lawyer. Okay, so that title doesn’t sound the most exciting, but at least the premise seems promising: It’s a legal thriller about an expert lawyer who defends a suspect in a suspicious and “labyrinthine” murder case.

It’s hardly the most original storyline, since we could probably all name several movies that fit this description, but from a character and acting standpoint it could give us something interesting. I look forward to seeing what Lee Seon-kyun can do with the a ferocious lawyer with a way of jabbing at his opponent’s weakness, whose skills are put to the test by this new case that’s shrouded in confusion.

Lee has a very entertaining, layered way of portraying angry/grumpy/difficult characters while maintaining the character’s groundedness, which we’ve seen before in many a drama or movie (see: Miss Korea, Golden Time, Pasta, A Hard Day). So the role is rich with potential, and I hope the actual crime case lives up to it—right now all we know that it’s mysterious and hazy, and presumably makes him angry at some point. But why? Gah, I so wish these initial announcements came with more info.

Angry Lawyer will be directed by Heo Jong-ho (Countdown) and will beginning filming in October.

Yay to a new project for Lee Seon Kyun, although I am very sad that I won't be seeing him in a drama this year. Does anyone know much about the director? I just have to echo how entertaining he is, and how much I enjoy seeing his nuanced portrayal of his characters in all his dramas and movies. The funny thing is, Pierce Conran, in his review of A Hard Day for Cannes, expressed the exact same sentiment: "Lee possesses a unusual quality that makes him seem both confident and awkward, or approachable and arrogant, at the same time."

I love LSK, I'm half way through My Sweet Seoul and he's so subtly expressive. Well, it's harder sometimes to find films than dramas online and who knows if this will have overseas releases. I hope I get to see it someday after it's finished.

A Lee Seon-kyun post garnered only four comments? I need to go rewatch a few select scenes of Coffee Prince :)

I can hardly believe it myself. I still remember when people went crazy over him. It could be the changing makeup of db readers, or maybe because there is so little information given in the post itself. But I so appreciate every LSK post.

Well, we all know he can play grumpy shouty characters and still be hot doing it. He ain't called The Voice for nothing!

Look forward to how this shapes up. Thanks for the news!
