Korean thriller ‘Master’ to premier in LA this month

December 16, 2016

SEOUL, Dec. 16 (Yonhap) — The South Korean crime thriller “Master” will premier in Los Angeles on Dec. 30, kick-starting its push into North America, its distributor said Friday.

CJ Entertainment America said the film directed by Cho Ui-seok will then open in U.S. and Canadian cities on Jan. 6, including New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Toronto and Vancouver.

The 143-minute film stars South Korea’s top-notch movie actors Lee Byung-hun and Kang Dong-won, and the up-and-rising actor Kim Woo-bin.

The action film is about an intellectual war between the three men, as they go after each other over a major financial scandal.

In the film, Lee plays Chairman Jin, a con man who starts an enormous hoax involving political powers and economic tycoons, to appropriate some 4 trillion won (US$3.4 billion). He and his sly right-hand man Gen. Park, played by Kim, face off against police investigator Kim Jae-myeong of the intelligence crime department, played by Kang.

“Master” premiered in Seoul on Monday amid rave reviews, and will hit local theaters Wednesday.
