Tazza 2: Hand of God hits theaters next month

The long wait for TOP (Choi Seung-hyun) fans is nearly over. Tazza 2: Hand of God (let’s be real, they could have called it Tazza 2: Hand of TOP) is being released next month, and we’ll get to see how well the sequel does in comparison to the first movie, Tazza: The High Rollers, which sold over 6 million tickets in 2006.

Both works are based on the card-gambling manhwa illustrated by Heo Young-man and written by Kim Se-young, which also spawned an eponymous drama series starring Jang Hyuk in 2008. The original comic had four parts, so if the latest installment does well, we could be in for a third movie (although we might have to wait a while to see it; we’ve had to wait eight years for this one).

In Tazza 2: Hand of God, TOP plays Dae-gil, the nephew of cardshark and swindler Go-ni (Jo Seung-woo in the first movie). Like his uncle, Dae-gil has been competitive and good at sleight-of-hand from a very young age. He plunges fearlessly into the gambling underworld, and begins the high-stakes battle of his life.

The trailer doesn’t reveal much, but we’re given small glimpses of a slick con movie, with some of the original cast making repeat appearances (Yoo Hae-jin, Kim Yoon-seok), some new to the franchise faces (Oh Jung-se — love him — of A New Leaf, Kwak Do-won of Suspicious Housekeeper), and Shin Se-Kyung (When A Man Loves) and Honey Lee (Shark) upping the pretty factor.

Tazza 2: Hand of God is directed by Kang Hyung-chul (Speedy Scandal, Sunny) and will be released in theaters at Chuseok.

I really wanted to see this...right up until the point where I watched the trailer.

The question now becomes, 'do I love TOP as much as I say I do? Would I watch a boring movie just to see him?'

I saw some promo pics here and there and thought it was gonna be a "serious" a la Iris type of movie too.

But I also love this. Looks like it'll just be a fun, Oceans type of movie. :)

I enjoy several of these actors and I did like the Oceans movies as well as that one that came out in Korea that was similar...this just didn't grab me. Maybe it's the trailer. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood. Who knows, these days!

I will watch a boring movie just for TOP. I sat through excruciating episodes of some teen drama whose name I can't even remember just for his brief scenes. And I actually watched that North Korean spy movie which totally wasn't as good as it was hyped.

(Into the Fire was chilingly awesome, though.)

I will watch TOP no matter what.

I agree that north korean spy movie was much more hyped than it was truly worth…but I thoroughly enjoyed TOP there. And I don't even know his works that much.

Let's be real, most of us will be watching just because of TOP. And I am okay with that.

I also fangirl over Shin Se Kyung, so double the fun.

Thank goodness there are some veteran actors in the cast and both TOP and Shin Se Kyung's roles are as eye candy as the movie would not be worth watching if otherwise

Tazza 1 has Jo Seung Woo and Kim Hye Soo while Tazza 2 has T.O.P and Shin Se Kyung. Sigh. Such a drop in quality. I don't think this movie will do well when the supporting cast (minus Lee Honey) is more solid than the main cast...

Tbh... I'm not in for the main cast^^ I mean I like TOP but he never struck me as the best actor out there and...well... Shin Se Kyung... *sigh* She has one facial expression (maybe 2?) so it's hard to tell what emption she is portraying :P

I'll still watch the movie though it's the supporting cast that keeps me interested bc nothing trumps the original Tazza with the amazing Jo Seung Woo and Kim Hye Soo!

I think the movie looks like fun. Looks campy and hilarious and the names behind it are cool, too.

Meh about the leads, but love the supporting cast.
However, it's the director I'm looking the most forward to. Enjoyed Speedy Scandal and Sunny, so I'm wondering how he'll deliver this one.

I love Oh Jung Se and Yoo Hae Jin and I love love love the first movie, but ugh!! I have an extreme aversion to SSK so this is a pass for me. Except of course, if Jo Seung Woo cameos.

I want to see more of TOP's works so I might give this one a try if I can find the first Tazza though. Jo Seung Mo!! <3

I think you missed Park Hyo Joo when listing the cast, she seems to have a poster of her own and is in the teaser quite a bit so I think she counts:D

I don't know why they like SSK so much, this girl is in everything and she always looks like she's holding back a fart.

i know what u mean,i have an idea now that maybe they choosed her for this role because of her poker face...in that field u need like in poker cards a good control of your emotions besides other skills and we know SSK has a poker face,no emotion what so ever,and she is natural,she should try changing fields,

I realize that I always make shallow comments.. but whatever.. Like this realization will stop me from objectifying the purrrty!

TOP gives the best side face. Those cheekbones are made for profile pictures.

I'll watch it after watching all movies in my must watch list~

I'm more excited about the cameos/supporting casts tbh. TOP is fine and sexy and everything but I prefer him just in editorial or MV. Love him but guess not that much. SSK in the other hand...sigh.... a drop in hotness level from KHS to SSK. However SSK do suitable in this kind of movie with her permanent poker face, so I guess it's a win?
