New posters and trailer arrive for The Target

Yay – The Target, the remake of French movie Point Blank, is hitting theaters soon. One fateful night, Ryu Seung-ryong (j’adore!) is falsely accused of murder, and a manhunt ensues by those on either side of the law. Lee Jin-wook, a doctor, somehow gets mixed up with Ryu Seung-ryong, and as a consequence, his wife is taken hostage. In desperation, the doctor teams up with the fugitive to find his beloved. And all of this happens in 36 hours. Whew.

The trailer is fast-paced and intense, with flying bullets, chase scenes, explosions, and hottie Ryu Seung-ryong (Gift of Room 7, Personal Taste) whupping asses. Lee Jin-wook (Nine), in his first leading big screen role, looks appropriately devastated in the preview and ready to do anything to get his wife back.

Both men look ruggedly handsome and fierce in the newest character posters for the film. Lee Jin-wook’s face is fraught with worry, and his tagline is “I need you to save my wife.” Ryu Seung-ryong’s is “I’ll go myself,” indicating he cooperates with the doctor (reluctantly, perhaps), and turns the tables on those in pursuit.

Interestingly, Jo Yeo-jung (Haeundae Lovers) will be on big screens simultaneously later this spring. Not only does she play Lee Jin-wook’s missing wife, she’s also Song Seung-hun’s wife in the upcoming flick Obsessed (the one he cheats on).

Yoo Joon-sang (Birth Secret, You Who Rolled In Unexpectedly) and Kim Sung-ryung (Heirs) play detectives hunting Ryu Seung-ryong, but with differing agendas. The movie, directed by Chang (real name Yoon Hong-seung, Ghastly), opens April 30th.

I love a well-done action movie, and this cast is solid. Here's to it being good (and the wife-in-danger bit if giving me flashbacks to The Berlin File)

The french original was excellent. The scenario wasn't the most original but it was solid, as was the acting. What made it really good was the directing. They were some really nice action scenes, most notably several chase scenes in Paris, a la Taken.

So I guess the success of this remake will all depend on whether the korean director can also deliver. Anyway, it will be worth checking out!

I just saw miracle in cell no. 7 and then saw all about my wife, as a result, I'm completely in love with Ryu Seung-ryong! Such an amazing actor!! Can't wait for this movie, meanwhile I will catch up with his other releases.

He was also amazing in "War of the Arrows" with Park Hae-Il (my leading man in the next life lol). No one forgets Ryu Seung-ryong even when he plays supporting roles or the bad guy.

Oh I thought this is a remake of the US classic Point Blank but I guess not.

Hope this will be another hit for the amazing Ryu Seung-ryong <3. I want to watch it but I think I already know the ending.

How can anybody look so hot in overalls?

We've 2 weeks, 14 days, 3 days..., all we need is for them to call this 36 hours, and we'd all be thoroughly confused!
