Hwang Jung-min and Ryu Seung-beom make a deal
This should be a treat for fans: Hwang Jung-min and Ryu Seung-beom are acting together again — the two have been cast in the new film Bad Deal [부당거래], a crime thriller that finds the leads wrapped up in a frustrating murder case.
Hwang Jung-min plays a police officer with a keen sense of intuition and outstanding investigation skills. Ryu Seung-beom is a hot-tempered rookie prosecutor who opposes Hwang in every little thing. With the investigation running into complication after complication, the two strike a secret deal that circumvents the police investigation.
This will be Hwang and Ryu’s second time working together, although it was almost their third. After appearing in the 2006 movie Bloody Tie, they had both been cast to work together in director Lee Jun-ik’s upcoming film, Like the Moon Escaping from Clouds, but Ryu ended up dropping out of the project.
Directing is Ryu Seung-wan of action film The City of Violence and action-comedy Dachimawa Lee. Unfair Deal will begin filming in March 2010.
