Hyun Bin to return as a king in upcoming movie

Actor Hyun Bin will be making his comeback on the big screen in his first work since completing military service as a naval officer in December.

Hyun Bin who has participated in many series such as ‘My name is Kim Sam soon’ and ‘Secret Garden’, has been cast in the upcoming history movie titled, ‘The Anger of King’. He will play the charismatic King Jungjo, the 22nd ruler of the Joseon dynasty.

The life of King Jungjo has been played out through numerous dramas and films in the past, but Hyun Bin’s new film will be approaching it from an entirely different angle, by portraying Jeongjo as a strong and authoritative king.

A representative from movie production stated, “As Hyun Bin chose this piece as his first comeback project, and it is a period film, it is expected that he will further expand his acting career in the future.

‘The Anger of King’ is scheduled for release in the first half of 2014.
