Song Kang Ho & Gang Dong Won Become Sworn Brothers
Secret Reunion (의형제; translated as sworn brothers), starring Song Kang Ho and Gang Dong Won, began filming on June 5.
The film is being directed by Jang Hoon whose first project as main director was 2008’s Rough Cut (A Movie is a Movie; 영화는 영화다). It is scheduled to take four months to film and debut in theatres this coming fall.
Secret Reunion (Sworn Brothers) is set six years after a dubious gunfight took place in the heart of Seoul. Song Kang Ho plays Lee Han Kyu, who was kicked out of the National Intelligence Service. Han Kyu acts first with his body rather than his head. Gang Dong Won is playing Song Ji Won, a cool-headed and precise agent who was abandoned by North Korea. The story unfolds as the two meet but each continues to conceal his identity from the other.
This is rumoured to be Gang Dong Won’s last project before he heads off to serve in the military. Song Kang Ho has just completed promotional activities for Director Park Chan Wook’s Thirst.
KP’s note: Yes, we know it’s most commonly spelled as Kang Dong Won but his official website is www.gangdongwon.com so we’re going to spell it like this.
