Most Anticipated Korean Films of 2015

8. The Great Tiger 
Dir: Park Hoon-jeong (New World, 2013)
Cast: Choi Min-sik (Oldboy, 2003)
Distribution: Next Entertainment World (NEW)
Filming Dates2014-12-15 ~
Status: Filming
Genre: Drama
Plot: During the Japanese Occupation of Korea in the early 20th century, a hunter is enlisted to hunt down the last remaining tiger on the peninsula.

Choi Min-sik had a huge year in 2014 so whatever he stars in next is bound to draw a lot of attention but frankly I wasn't keen on his performance in Roaring Currents so I'm eager to see what he does with what looks to be a more challenging role and the right fit for the thespian. Director Park Hoon-jeong also proved himself very adept with New World (2013) so I have high hopes for what he might come up with this time.

  1. One of the most intresting film on the list. After New World I'm keen to see where he goes.
