17. Black Priests (translated title)
검은 사제들

Cast: Kim Yun-seok (The Yellow Sea, 2010), Gang Dong-won (Kundo: Age of the Rampant)

There isn't much to go on here, but the casting is eye-catching and the premise is ripe for all sorts of interesting situations. It comes from a first time director, but United Pictures may provide a less rigid creative environment than a bigger studio. However, this is still definitely a wild card.
