Kim Myung-min will focus on the screen in the first half of the year

2010/02/17 | Permalink | Source

Kim Myung-min has decided to concentrate on the big screen in the first half of this year.

Originally, it had been known that he was going to star in "Giant", a new SBS drama, which is scheduled to start broadcasting in May. However, Kim Myung-min recently declined the main role in "Giant", and instead took a role in a thriller movie, "Man of Vendetta". The two works would have similar filming schedule and opening date, and Kim has chosen the movie after a deliberation.

"Giant" has been considered as one of the most significant television dramas of 2010. It is a period drama, which deals with the history of the construction development of Seoul. Since this is a large scale project, the production team wanted to secure an actor who can lead with sufficient capability and stature. The "Giant" team had Kim Myung-min in mind from the early stage of the conception of the drama.

The movie which Kim chose, "Man of Vendetta", tells a story about a pastor, who leads a secular life after his daughter gets kidnapped. Kim will play the role of Joo Young Soo, who fiercely pursues the kidnapper 8 years after the abduction. Filming began recently, and the movie is expected to be released in June.

It is known that the production team of "Giant" has chosen another actor, who is as well known and has the same level of acting ability as Kim Myung-min, and negotiations are going on presently.
