The 42-year-old actor will start shooting for “The Day of Inversion” (working title), an action movie, in July.
Seoul will be the main setting of the movie, so filming will be held in the city for almost two months.
Lee went to China on Thursday to attend the closing ceremony of the Beijing International Film Festival, where he met with the movie’s staff to discuss the upcoming film.
