Hey, if you needed someone to go undercover in South Korea, I guess one of the popular members of the boy band Big Bang is probably a pretty good choice. Well, not really, now that I think about it. Fortunately for Choi Seung-hyun’s character in Hong-soo Park’s “Commitment”, Myung-hoon is just a high school student. Which, I suppose, makes his infiltration kinda easier. Yeah, that makes way more sense.
Anyhoo. Take a gander at the trailer for “Commitment”, including a poster and some images. Choi was also in John H. Lee’s “71: Into the Fire”, which I liked, even though it was a tad overblown. Whatever happened to Lee’s “The Killer” remake, anyway? Am I the only one still waiting for that movie? Probably…
After his father’s botched espionage mission, North Korean Myung-hoon and his young sister Hye-in are sent to a labor prison camp. In order to save his sister’s life, Myung-hoon volunteers to become a spy and infiltrates the South as a teenage defector. While attending high school in the South, he meets another girl named Hye-in, and rescues her when she comes under attack. South Korean Intelligence soon discover Myung-hoon’s activities and begin tracking him, all the while his own government sends a vicious assassin to eliminate him.
Starring Choi Seung-hyun, Han Ye-ri, and Kim You-jeong.
