Ha Jung-woo explores his dark side

2008/02/06 Source

Internationally recognised actor Ha Jung-woo, explores the dark side of humanity through his take on a serial murderer in "Choogyeokja" ("The Chaser", English translation: "pursuer"). He is tracked down by a shady former detective played by Kim Yun-seok. First-time feature film director Na Hong-jin was in charge.

The dark thriller examines society and politics through a story that sees a confessed killer released unpunished while touching upon issues as prostitution and corruption.

HA commanded attention with his role in "The Unforgiven", a film praised at international film festivals. He increased his international appeal opposite of Vera Farmiga in Gina Kim's Never Forever.

KIM received praise for his supporting roles in numerous films which earned him this leading role. NA previously directed the short film "A Perfect Red Snapper Dish". Choogyeokja opens on February 14.
