A Company Man (회사원)

회사원 (Hoi-sa-won)

Directed by Lim Sang-yoon (임상윤)

Screenplay by

Action Drama

Release date in South Korea :

Hyung-do (So Ji-sub) wears a suit and tie like any other white collar worker... except his profession is murder. He is professional contract killer -- a hitman -- loyal to his employer and regarded as the best in the business. But one day, to the surprise of his colleagues and his enemies, he suddenly decides to quit his job for a woman (Lee Mi-yeon). Seen as the ultimate betrayal, Hyung-do is immediately hunted down by his former employers. Will he be able to escape with his life, much less with his love?
Written and directed by Lim Sang-yoon, "A Company Man" is his feature debut. Previously he worked as an assistant director on the mystery/horror films "The Cut" and "Shadows in the Palace" as well as the melodrama "The Old Garden", all from 2007. "A Company Man" also marks actress LEE Mi-yeonís first feature film since 2007ís "Love Exposure".

The film is about a killer in suits and ties like any other white collar worker. The fact that hot star So Ji-sub will be starring at this action melo drama alone makes one look forward to the film. While his previous work "Always" is about love of a boxer, this time it's love of a killer. Hyeong-do is a professional killer working for a company specializing in contract murders. A man loyal to his company and accepted as the firm's best killer, Hyeong-do one day decides to quit his job for a woman he is in love with. Instantly, he is under threat of murder by his former colleagues. The woman So Ji-sub loves dearly with his life is played by Lee Mi-yeon, returning to the screens after a long break since "Love Exposure"(2007). Director Lim Sang-yoon who was assistant director in "The Old Garden" is making his debut with the film, with a script he wrote himself. After 4 months of shooting, the film was finished on December 4th, 2011. The battle for life and death staged by professional killers demanded big scale action with difficulties, and the plan is to present a new visual of action film.

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "A Company Man" on the Edge of Freedom...

    Film: "A Company Man" Director/Writer: Lim Sang-yoon Stars: So Ji-sub, Lee Mi-yeon, Kwak Do-won, Lee Kyung-young & Kim Dong-jun Review Score: 3.5 / 5 "Don't take it personally" are the words Lim Sang-yoon's hero proclaims as he gives his young and enthusiastic partner the bad news of his expulsion from 'the company'. In "A Company Man" debutant writer/director Lim Sang-yoon probes Korea's obsessive desire with white-collar jobs that are perceived to be the measure of success and status. This ideologically charged film demonstrates the creative and cinematic talents of Lim as he questions Korea's current social discourse on modern measures of success, wealth, and personal responsibility. Writer/director Lim Sang-yoon's first feature may not have set the box office on fire when it was release in the latter half of 2012, but what stands out most here is his creative competency and mastery over the more technical aspect of cinema and narrative. The popular So Ji-sub plays Hyeong-Do, a highly trained and slick assassin who comes to question his role and future within the underground company he has so faithfully served,...More
