Korean actors Hyun Bin and Joo Jin-mo have been cast in a film "The Battle of Yellow Sea" (formerly titled "Beautiful Us"), according to an executive for movie's sales firm Miro Vision.

The executive, currently promoting the pic to foreign movie buyers at the Cannes film market in France, distributed booklets in which the two actors were introduced as the film's male leads.

"The Battle of Yellow Sea", a war drama to be filmed in 3D, will be helmed by noted Korean filmmaker Kwak Gyeong-taek, who has directed both actors in previous works -- Hyun Bin in MBC TV series "Friend, Our Story " (a small screen adaptation of Kwak's 2001 hit movie "Friend") and Joo in 2007 film "a LOVE".

The film is based on the Second Battle of Yeonpyeong which occurred in June 2002, when a North Korean patrol boat crossed the sea boundary line and engaged in a marine confrontation with South Korea.

"The Battle of Yellow Sea", to be produced on a 15 billion won budget, will go into shoot starting next month.

Hyun Bin, also the current boyfriend of top Korean actress Song Hye-kyo, has been a star in the Asian region since appearing in MBC's smash hit TV series "My Name is Kim Sam-soon" in 2005.

Joo Jin-mo, who starred opposite actress Kim Ah-joong in film "200 Pounds Beauty", is set to appear in the Korean remake "The Invicible" of John Woo's classic Hong Kong noir film "A Better Tomorrow" this year alongside Hallyu star Song Seung-heon.
