Lee Byung-hun has big plans


Lee Byung-hun

It looks like it’ll be a busy year ahead for actor Lee Byung-hun, who just last week confirmed his appearance in the Hollywood movie “Terminator: Genesis.”

According to local reports, Lee is also slated to join the new webtoon-based movie “The Insiders” (working title).

The film is based on the webtoon of the same name by star cartoonist Yoon Tae-ho, famous for “Moss” and “Incomplete Life,” which were also adapted into movies.

“The Insiders” takes a look at deep-rooted political and social graft in Korean society from an insider’s perspective.

Lee will star as the political hoodlum Sang-goo, who carries out an array of underhanded schemes for corrupt politicians but plots his revenge after his downfall.

The movie is set to be directed by Woo Min-ho, of “Man of Vendetta” (2010).

Shooting will kick off in July, with the film scheduled for release in the first half of 2015.
