It’s kind of an odd combo, but I suppose there’s comedy potential there. Kim Jaejoong (Protect the Boss) and Song Ji-hyo (Running Man, Kye Baek) have been paired together in an upcoming comedy film called The Jackal Is Coming, where they play killer and victim-to-be, except the killer’s not who you’d expect.
