Go Soo and Shin Ha-kyun’s new movie


Principle photography is underway for Go Soo‘s second film this year, upcoming war drama Before the Hills, alongside big-screen veteran Shin Ha-kyun (Festival, Cafe Noir). They’ll be playing soldiers who get taken by the North as prisoners of war, and will form an opposition force against their captors.

Before the Hills is the third feature film by director Jang Hoon, who helmed this year’s Secret Reunion, starring Song Kang-ho and Kang Dong-won. The screenplay was written by Park Sang-yeon, of MBC’s mega-hit, Queen Seon-deok. Well, I definitely see it going for the dramatic highs and lows, then.


Ryu Seung-ryong (The Recipe, Personal Taste) plays the Northern leader that they will go up against (love him!), and Kim Ok-bin and Go Chang-suk also star.

The premise of this is at least a departure from the usual war epic, which intrigues me, and well, the cast is oh so good.

Before the Hills will premiere in the summer of 2011.
