Choi Min Sik VS Lee Byung Hun 2010 I SAW THE DEVIL 악마를 보았다 "Akmareul boattda" In the wake of his successful Western The Good, The Bad, The Weird, Kim Jee-woon was originally planning to shoot a US remake of the 1970s era French thriller Max and the Junkmen. However when progress on that project began to slow, he turned to a smaller project that he had been developing in parallel. I Saw the Devil is a violent thriller about a psychopath who kills for pleasure, starring Choi Min-sik of Oldboy fame. However when he kills the fiancee of a top secret agent, the bereaved agent (played by Lee Byung-hun) turns into a monster himself in order to extract revenge. Reportedly so grisly that many top distributors wouldn't touch it. #ISawTheDevil #ChoiMinSik #LeeByungHun #KimJiWoon Credit: Dir. Guillermo del Toro (@RealGDT)
