Filming for Joe Taslim’s first Korean movie begins

The filming of Swordsman, a South Korean film featuring Indonesian actor Joe Taslim, kicked off on Thursday.

In the film, Joe plays Gurutai, a cold-blooded commander from the Qing Dynasty.

Through his official LINE account, he recently said he was learning Korean martial art Kumdo and the Korean language for the film, kompas.com reported.

Acting in the film are renowned Korean stars Jang Hyuk, Jung Man-sik, Choi Jin-ho, Jang Hyun-sung and Kim Hyun-soo, as well as Korean boy group BtoB’s Minhyuk.

“We underwent a long pre-production process and completed the preparation for yet-to-be-seen original action and martial arts scenes," the film's director, Choi Jae-hoon, said.

Slated for release next year, Swordsman tells the story of Joseon swordsmen during the transition period of the Ming and Qing dynasties. The film is produced by Opus Pictures, which previously worked on The Man from Nowhere and Snowpiercer. 

This movie marks Joe’s first Korean production. In January, Korean news outlet hankyung.com reported that Joe had signed a contract with Korean agency Starfig Entertainment, which holds under contract, among others, actress Hwang In-young, Shin Yu-jeong, Hong Min-jung and Jung Ye-ji.

Joe was awarded Best APAN Star alongside Descendants of the Sun actor Song Joong-ki in Seoul, South Korea, last year. (mas/kes)

Thanks for all the updates. I'll be waiting for this in 2018. Heck, it's Jang Hyuk. Plus my fav young actress Kim Hyun Soo playing is daughter. She's impressive and talented. I'm hoping to see some dramatic interactions between her and our lead star.  Just adds that pinch to the heart ( you know kinda like Miracle in Cell No 7) because in this upcoming movie "Jang Hyuk playing blind man in 'Swordsman'. It depicts the story of a blind swordsman and his daughter against the Qing Dynasty in a confused situation where Ming dynasty is declining and power is replaced"

What if they star in drama.. father and daughter drama? Though I love Voice I kinda want to see Jan Hyuk in diff genre.

And because I don't see a thread..yet. Just slight OTKim Hyun Soo another good one for her playing young So Ye Jin in movie with So Ji Sub. Source

Was just discussing  on previous page how  KHS really chooses her projects very well. if you check her movie and drama credentials.

 Well..2018 I have a lot of movies to looks forward too ( and JH dramas hopefully soon)
