Kim Soo-hyun fights to become the Real in action noir film

After two impatient years of waiting, we finally get to see Kim Soo-hyun’s (The Producers) comeback project, action noir film Real. Set in an opulent city, Kim Soo-hyun plays a vicious underworld “fixer” with sky-high ambitions of becoming the ultimate lord of the dens of vice.

The teaser opens with Lee Sung-min (Memory) asking Kim Soo-hyun’s character: “So Mr. Jang Tae-young, what is it you do exactly?” Flashes of the glittering city with all its excessive extravagances are seen, from showy sports cars to glamorous models. Kim Soo-hyun swivels around in his chair as Sung Dong-il’s (Hwarang) voiceover says: “I like this guy’s fighting spirit.”

Impressive aerial kicks and stunt scenes by Kim Soo-hyun are shown in quick clips, and the copy reads: “Only the real will gain it all.”

Despite my earlier preconception from past descriptions that it would be a gritty noir film, this teaser gives us bright flashes of vivid color throughout, highlighting the ostentatious lifestyles of criminal high-rollers. We’re also introduced to Jo Woo-jin (The Lonely Shining Goblin, Chicago Typewriter) and Sulli (To the Beautiful You) in brief cuts. Sulli’s role previously stirred interest because of reports of a bed scene between her and Kim Soo-hyun in the movie.

Despite having finished filming last June, a couple controversies have lead to a delay in production. First, there was a director switch midway through from Lee Jung-seob (Romantic Island, Rainbow Eyes) to Lee Sa-rang (the CEO of the production company behind the movie, who is Kim Soo-hyun’s cousin). In addition, Real is a joint Korean-Chinese venture, with most of the investment funds being provided by the Alibaba Group, a Chinese e-retail company. Thus, it was supposed to premiere on the same date in both countries, but due to political tension from THAAD development in Korea, the premiere date in China has been pushed back.

However, it looks like things are back on track, and Real will premiere in Korea this June.

Trailer doesn't look half bad. Let's hope Kim Soo-hyun's character has got a better world domination strategy than Jung Shi-hyun (yes, I'm still bitter).

Right? Whether I'm only aware of him now, or he does appear everywhere. But I'm not complaining, he deserves it, a scene-stealer through and through.

he debuted in 2011 so is still new. His part is normally small so maybe only takes few days to film. There are many actors like that, they are supporting and extras so they dont make that much money

I've always found Kim Soo Hyun more cute than sexy. But man, the look he sports in this trailer! Like a cross between Won Bin and Kim Kang Woo

I was thinking the same thing! Well, minus the Won Bin and Kim Kang Woo comparison.

There is a real sexiness to him here that took me by surprise. I don't usually watch K-movies, but I might make an exception here. Damn.

I don't think so. Thought he was supposed to enlist sometime this year after this movie comes out. That why I was kinda surprised by the "comeback project" description. But I think the films delay has thrown this off a bit.

This is being selfish and inconsiderate, not just to Kim Soo Hyun, but to the rest of the cast and crew that worked so hard for the movie.

OMG, I'm definitely going to see this movie. The cinematography is beautiful and I'm eager to see what Kim Soo Hyun is capable of. I have a feeling he's going to surprise us all, he's always been a good actor. And we have to admit that bad guys have always had appeal...

His command of the screen is something to behold. It's not a coincidence he's so successful. I bet he'll get another Daesang soon if he returns to dramaland.

I was never quite into this movie after hearing descriptions about it. But then the teasers look so badass and KSH always manages to reel me in. He's KSH after all. I just hope it's good though. And that he does one last drama before he leaves. He has until the end of the year, so tick tock KSH - don't make me wait 4 years for another drama!

I barely recognize he is KSH. Love how he is able to transform himself with each character he plays. I wouldn't be surprised if this turns out to be another big hit for him.

The film looks sci-fi as well as noir. Maybe it's due to the vibrant colors and high rise buildings.
