Can someone NOT agree how sexy a beast Ha Jung Woo is? Even with acclaimed great Choi Min Sik (of Old Boy fame) beside him, his presence is just as striking and captivating. Just look at that confidence and nonchalant attitude of his, tell me, how am I supposed to NOT love him more than I already do?
In case you didn’t know, I’d written a few entries about the man in the past. And it looks like it will continue that way until he stops acting. I haven’t seen his most recent film Client with Jang Hyuk and Park Hee Seon yet (dying for Chinese subs to come out), but I’m already looking forward to his next, Nameless Gangster aka War Against Crime, a film penned and directed by a familiar name Yoon Jung Bin whom he’d worked with twice in the past (The Unforgiven and Moonlight in Seoul).
The film is set in Busan during the 1990s, when then President of Korea, Roh Tae Woo declared a war against crime and violence. Ha Jung Woo plays Busan’s most powerful and tyrannic gangster-head while Choi Min Sik plays his right hand man (I assume, from the poster).
I’ve always had an unexplainable interest in gang films. Perhaps I’d been influenced by Infernal Affairs (HK), the thing about gangsters fighting for their own warped concept of justice piques my interest. And it certainly doesn’t help when you get an actor of HJW’s calibre to play such a character. I’m sold way ahead.

Gosh, how can a man look THIS SMEXYHOT?!
Film is set to premier in Korea next Feb 2012.
