 So why am I excited? Look  at that poster! I can tell it's going to be good and dramatic.

This is an action historical movie but Jang Hyuk playing a blind character.  I can sense father and daughter dramatic scenes.

Father and Daughter tandem in upcoming movie.  Brilliance of Jang Hyuk plus the impressive 17 yr old Kim Hyun Soo.

[Solo] "Threat of livelihood" movie "Swordsman" actors · staff 'accrual fee' accusation

 

Following the commercial and drama series, now it is the movie industry.

 

Recently, there had been news of stars not being paid their performance fees, and now even the movie industry is also suffering from unpaid pay.

 

According to a number of moviegoers, the main actors and staff of the recently completed movie 'Swordman (Choi Jae Hoon)' were confirmed to have failed to receive the performance fee and wages from the production company Opus Pictures. The amount depends on each individual, but it is several hundred million won to over a billion.

 

Actors Jang Hyuk, Jung Man Sik,  Joe Taslim, and Kim Hyun-soo star in this movie, a story about swordsman Tae-yul and his daughter against the Qing Dynasty in the chaotic situation of the Ming Dynasty.

 

Actors' pay is not solved, and the situation with the crew is more difficult. As a result, the leading actors sent a certificate of contents in the form of a letter of agreement to the producers regarding the unpaid performance fee, and some staff members accused the fact through the movie newspaper.

 

Especially, the reason why the actors and staffs are more angry with the unpaid wages and unpaid wages is because the production company is preparing to film the new film 'Director Kim Tae-jun' without finishing the 'Swordsman' perfectly.

 

"One of the main staffs of the" Swordsman "told the daily sports," It is right that we have not received the wages once, and we are not wrong, but it is frustrating because we are pushed. "But as we are still working as a member of the film, It seems a little difficult, please understand. "

 

One actor also said, "I have not been able to pay the balance for a few months, and the deadline for the promise has already passed, and I'm tired of hearing it. Actors are like this, but the staff will be a bigger threat for the livelihood, "he said." If it is late, I will have to deal with it legally. "

Thanks for updates. Did they ran out of funds for this movie?  Actors and production crew needs to be paid. Filming can take  a whole day and cast and crew should be paid worth  of their time. The article said money flow hasn't been smooth but they will be paid. So at least there's that assurance. 

 

I hope  this news doesn't affect the movie.. the quality of the movie. Needs to earn big, good decent, opening.Then  big.  Critical or commercial success.. as long as it's a success in acting and story and everything. It should do well.  Jang Hyuk playing a blind swordsman.  A Jang Hyuk film or drama  means we'll see excellent acting.

'The Swordsman' confirmed to be released on 17 Sept 2020

 

The movie, "The Swordsman (directed by Choi Jae-hoon)," which is hugely anticipated due to actor Jang Hyuk's explosive action performance, has been confirmed to be released on September 17.

 

"The Swordsman" is an action film that begins when Taeyul, the best swordsman of Joseon who turned his back on the world, raises his sword again to find his lost daughter. Jang Hyuk, who captivated the audience with his explosive energy and charismatic action in each role, visits the audience as Taeyul, the best swordsman of Joseon, who raises the sword again to save his daughter.

 

The two posters of "The Beginning of the Chase" that were released this time showed the energy of Jang Hyuk, who played Taeyul, the best swordsman of Joseon, who lived with his back to the world. With his face covered, you can feel the intense tension between the best swordsmen of the time and the sharp blade pointing at Taeyul will soon begin. Here, Taeyul's angry eyes, which are alone but face off against the swordsmen, further raise expectations for his action to be staged at the theater in September. The short and intense copy of "Chasing to the End" is enough to expect the unstoppable pursuit action of Joseon's best swordsman, who wanted to live with his back to the world but had to raise his sword again to save his kidnapped daughter.

 

Jang Hyuk will perform most of the action in "The Swordsman" to show the audience the real world of action that only actor Jang Hyuk can do. On top of that, the breathtaking chase of swordsmen against the backdrop of various places in the Joseon Dynasty of Chaos and the exhilarating story of Joseon's best swordsman whose daughter was kidnapped fighting against the world that touched the wrong person gives the theater audience a certain attraction and fun in September.

News of Joe Taslim in 'The Swordsman'

 

Joe Taslim and Jang Hyuk's action showdown in 'The Swordsman'


The chase action film "The Swordsman" (directed by Choi Jae-hoon, produced by Opus Pictures) is receiving much attention for the appearance of action actor Joe Taslim.


Joe Taslim made an early splash in Hollywood with a charming mask and realistic action performance, working twice with Justin Lin, who directed "The Fast and the Furious: The Maxim" and "Star Trek Beyond." In particular, Star Trek Beyond was accompanied by top actors such as Simon Pegg and Idris Elba, giving them an incomparable sense of action.

 

In 'The Swordsman', Joe Taslim plays the role of Gurutai, a Qing dynasty royalty who covets chaotic Joseon, confronting Jang Hyuk, the country's leading action actor, and shows off another heavy presence.

 

In the movie, Gurutai kidnaps Tae-ok (Kim Hyun-soo), the daughter of Tae-yul (Jang Hyuk), taking advantage of Joseon's chaotic situation due to the confrontation between Ming and Qing. In addition, he adds tension to the play by threatening the people of Joseon in order to find talented people who can rival him.


Martial arts director Lee Sang-ha of "The Swordsman" raised expectations for Joe Taslim's action performance, saying, "Not only did he have outstanding talent in action and martial arts, but he also has excellent agility."

 

As such, "The Swordsman" is expected to provide a variety of attractions with high-level action performances by actors who boast colorful martial arts skills against the backdrop of various places in the Joseon Dynasty.

 

"The Swordsman" is a real chase action film that begins when the best swordsman in Joseon Dynasty, who turned his back on the world, raises his sword again to find his lost daughter after the deposition of Gwanghaegun. It is the first feature film directed by Choi Jae-hoon, who was the artistic director in the "Anatomy Classroom", and starred Jang Hyuk, Joe Taslim, Jung Man-sik, Kim Hyun-soo, Lee Na-kyung and Lee Min-hyuk. It will be released on September 17.

'The Swordsman' Jang Hyuk, the best swordsman of Joseon.. performs high-level of action himself


The movie "The Swordsman" first unveiled its main trailer on Aug. 26 that offers a glimpse into Jang Hyuk's unstoppable real pursuit action.

 

"The Swordsman" is a real chase action film that tells the story of Tae-yul, the best swordsman of Joseon who turned his back on the world after the abdication of Gwanghae-gun, being forced to raise his sword again to find his lost daughter.


The released trailer starts with a scene in which Tae-yul (Jang Hyuk), the best swordsman of Joseon, reappeared in the world, raising questions. Gurutai (Joe Taslim), a member of the Qing Dynasty's royal family, and his group of swordsmen had kidnapped Tae-ok (Kim Hyun-soo), the daughter of Tae-yul, and it awakened the instinct Tae-yul had hidden in order to find his daughter. Taeyul's relentless cutting of everything with the line "Where's my daughter?" gives a refreshing action pleasure.

 

Another confrontation with Min Seung-ho (Jung Man-sik), the king's guard who doubted the identity of Tae-yul as the First Sword of Josen, further raised tension. On top of that, the appearance of Hwa-sun (Lee Na-kyung), a female swordsman who survived with a single dagger, stimulates curiosity about how she will affect the play. In addition to the thrilling swordsmanship action of killing a group of swordsmen one after another to find their daughter, Tae-yul's line, "The sword is for stabbing, cutting" adds to expectations, heralding the strongest action performance of 2020.

 

Jang Hyuk, who has established himself as the best action actor of all genres across dramas and movies, is expected to perform realistic sword action that has never been seen before.

 

It also attracts attention casting a combination of actors such as Joe Taslim, who made headlines by appearing in Hollywood action blockbusters, veterans Jung Man-sik and Jang Hyun-sung, as well as new actors Kim Hyun-soo, Lee Na-kyung and Lee Min-hyuk. On top of that, spectacular swordsmanship action by the best swordsmen of Joseon against the backdrop of various places during the Qing Dynasty is expected to offer a variety of attractions.

 

'The Swordsman' is scheduled to be released on September 17.
