Lee Jung-jin turns villain for new film
Lee Jung-jin (Bottom of the 9th with 2 Outs) is turning into a villain for his next role, a film called The Fixer [or Problem Solver, 해결사] in which he stars against Chungmuro regular Sol Kyung-gu.
In the film, a private investigator’s office run by Sol Kyung-gu, a former police detective, becomes caught up in the case of a murder committed by a serial killer. The investigator becomes a suspect in the crime, and the thriller unfolds as he sets out to clear himself of the false charge. Lee Jung-jin joins forces with people who torment Sol, and is a coldly charismatic mastermind in control from afar.
Lee expressed his feelings on acting with Sol, saying, “I’m happy to be working with Sol Kyung-gu sunbae, who always dominates the screen with his charisma, and I’m also nervous. Aside from him, there are a lot of other senior actors I respect like Oh Dal-soo, Joo Jin-mo and others. Since this is a film with top actors, I’ll work hard so that I don’t cause any problems.”
The movie will begin filming in March and release in the latter half of this year.
(Is it me, or are there are A TON of serial killer movies coming out these days?)
