Kim Soo-hyun joins Thieves

Niiice. What a surprising turn for upcoming heist movie Thieves to round out its cast with some young blood. I was already in, but now I’m chomping at the bit for this motley crew to get their thievin’ on. Kim Soo-hyun, fresh off his star-making turn as country-bumpkin-turned-popstar Song Sam-dong on Dream High, has joined the cast of what’s shaping up to be my new favorite movie, if all goes according to plan.

It’s a huge step up for the young but oh-so-talented Kim Soo-hyun, as he joins the ranks with A-listers Lee Jung-jae and Jeon Ji-hyun, who are headlining the “Korean Ocean’s Eleven.” Though his relative role might not be as substantial, I have no doubt he’ll be stealing scenes left and right.

A team of five thieves from Korea will join up with four thieves based in Macau, to steal “The Sun’s Tear” diamond out of a Macau casino. Lee Jung-jae plays Popeye (love it!), the boss of the Korean team, and a specialist in wiring. I’m thinking that means explosives, yeah? Kim Soo-hyun will be playing Zampano, his protege, and the youngest on his team. Aw, I smell bromance, ahoy! Seriously, if it’s anything close to the Clooney-Damon protege-bromance of Ocean’s Eleven, I will DIE.

Jeon Ji-hyun plays Anycall, a tightrope specialist. Probably another way to describe the ‘grease man,’ meaning she can get into and out of…anywhere. She’s apparently also got quite the sailor’s tongue, along with a penchant for stealing sparkly things. Kim Hye-soo (Home Sweet Home, Tazza, below top right) plays Pepsi, a legendary safecracker, who’s never once touched a safe she couldn’t crack. How much do I love that there are some badass sexy women on this team?

Kim Yoon-seok (The Chaser, Jeon Woo-chi, below top left) plays Macau Park, who specializes in blueprints; he’ll be bringing all the thieves together for the big heist. Oh Dal-soo (The Fixer, Bang-ja Chronicle, bottom right) and Kim Hae-sook (Life Is Beautiful, Thirst, bottom left) will round out the cast, though their call signs/criminal identities have yet to be announced. I love the idea of seeing Kim Hae-sook, who has played everybody’s loving caring mom, become a cold calculating thief. Can she please live a double life, like she bakes muffins at home for her family, and then when she goes to work, she’s got tattoos and a double-barrel shotgun?

Thieves will be helmed by director Choi Dong-hoon (Tazza, The Big Swindle, and Jeon Woo Chi), and begins filming in May.

Sooo effing fantastic! If only you and JB could recap -- ahem, review -- films as well, Girlfriday. Of course that might piss off the filmmakers, so nevermind. But what a great step-up for Soo-hyun! My friend is in Korea and she was beside herself when she told me about this. I think she might love him more than we do, which is saying something. Something scary.

On a random note, I've always been intrigued by the dissonance between Kim Soo-hyun's face and his hands. His face is so delicate and classically beautiful, but his hands? Those are some serious man hands rite thurr. Weird. But hawt.

I sometimes ruin things for myself by anticipating/expecting too much from a movie. So, I'll quietly and calmly make a mental note to watch this...meanwhile I'm jumping and squeeing inside!

So excited to see Jeon Ji Hyeon in a Korean movie again, and I think it's a good step on her part to join an ensemble cast instead of headlining a movie on her own.
And I'm so proud of Kim Soo Hyun-- he really has the potential but I can see him working hard to not just be another pretty face.

Kim Soohyun does have a great talent for stealing scenes, whether you give him a small role or a big one, he seems to really know how to make it count. Can't wait for this movie, finally our "Sam dong" is moving up to the big leagues, so happy for him!!!

P.S. I actually didn't have high hopes for this movie when I first heard of it a while back, it sounded like it was trying too hard to be something cool, but with Kim Soohyun added to the cast, it just got a lot more appealing, LOL (It really was a great choice for them to add him to the cast!!!)

The only thing that would make this better is to add Yoo Ah In to the mix. That would be just too much eye candy awesomeness I guess. A girl can dream.

Also, the nicknames for these thieves are lol-worthy. It's been ages since I last watched Ocean's Eleven, I already forgot what that film was like. But I wonder if I can kind of look forward to a Leverage-esque kind of heist.

Man I wish I was in korea to watch it. Lee Jung-jae and Jeon Ji-hyun already had me anticipating this movie, so to add Kim Soo Hyun on top of an already talented cast is just icing on the cake. I am happy to see him in the ranks of such respected actors because I see him having similar status in respect in the future of his career considering how talented he is already.
