KIM Jee-woon’s THE AGE OF SHADOWS Books September Release Date


KIM Jee-woon’s latest project The Age of Shadows, which wrapped on March 31st, completed post-production earlier this month and has now been scheduled for release in September, which will coincide with the Korean Thanksgiving holiday (Chuseok). The Colonial Era action-thriller stars SONG Kang-ho and GONG Yoo and is being financed and distributed by Warner Bros., marking the Hollywood major’s first foray in Korean language productions.


Set during Japan’s colonization of Korea (1910-45), the film chronicles the exploits of a violent Korean independence group known as the Heroic Corps. GONG plays a member of the resistance while SONG will portray a military officer for the Japanese occupiers.


The Age of Shadows, which was previously known by its Korean title Secret Agent, marks the fourth collaboration between KIM and SONG, following The Quiet Family (1998), The Foul King (2000) and The Good, The Bad, And The Weird (2008). It is also director KIM’s return to Korean soil after helming Hollywood superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger’s acting comeback in 2013’s The Last Stand. His last Korean title was 2010’s I Saw The Devil with LEE Byung-hun and CHOI Min-shik.


SONG’s last film, LEE Joon-ik’s period drama The Throne, was released during last year’s Chuseok holiday, and went on to post healthy returns for distributor Showbox. Co-star GONG has already been seen in the drama A Man and A Woman this year and also led the zombie blockbuster TRAIN TO BUSAN, which impressed at the Cannes Film Festival and is due out in Korea on July 20th. Their co-stars include HAN Ji-min (The Fatal Encounter, 2014), UM Tae-goo (Coin Locker Girl, 2015) and SEO Young-joo (Juvenile Offender, 2012).
