Actor Song Seung Hun has been cast in a period action film tentatively titled “Messenger”
Storms Company announced yesterday that Song Seung Hun will play a messenger named Moo Jin during the Joseon Dynasty who must relay a message that will shape the course of history.
Through a press release, the actor’s agency stated, “The story line as well as the suspenseful action scenes were enough to get him to finish reading the entire scenario in one sitting, and he was left impressed by the character ‘Moo Jin’. It is a project to be anticipated with its speedy drama development and emotional moments.”
The agency also said the 36-year-old actor is practicing horseback riding and fencing for the film, although production will not start until December.
Song Seung Hun shared, “I honestly got through the whole screenplay in one sitting,” and “I liked the action in it, and Moo Jin is such an incredible character.”
Meanwhile, a wax figure of the star is scheduled to be unveiled in December at the Madame Tussauds in Busan. “We expect Hallyu fans will love it. We could really not think of any star better looking or better suited to turn into a wax doll,” said a spokesperson for the museum.
