Four character posters for Lee Jun-ik’s new film
King and the Clown director Lee Jun-ik‘s latest movie, Like the Moon Escaping from Clouds [구르믈 버서난 달처럼], has released character posters for its four leads, and they are simply gorgeous.
Based on a manhwa created by Park Heung-yong, this movie is set in the Joseon era as a revolutionary attempts to upend the social order and become king. The year is 1592 as the three lead males “are forced to wield their swords at each other in a fateful showdown.”
The lead character (the revolutionary) is played by City Hall‘s Cha Seung-won, while Hwang Jung-min plays a blind sword master; his Accidental Couple co-star Baek Sung-hyun takes on a character abandoned by his family and the world. As the sole female lead, Han Ji-hye plays a woman who risks all to claim the man she loves.
Like the Moon Escaping from Clouds will be released in the first half of 2010.
