In the mood for some “Top Gun”-inspired South Korean action? Look no further than director Kim Dong-Won’s upcoming aerial actioner “Return to Base”. Or, alternatively, “Soar into the Sun”. The film stars “Ninja Assassin” badass Rain, who portrays a young troublemaking pilot filled with, and I quote, “curiosity and playfulness”. There’s a winning combination. Before too long, something bad happens, and he’s called into action. The film may sound kind of generic, but it honestly doesn’t look that bad. No joke!
But first, here’s a handy synopsis:
Tae-Hoon (Rain) is the youngest member of the elite flight team “Black Eagles,” which consists of Korea’s top combat pilots. Tae-Hoon is gifted pilot, but he is also a troublemaker, filled with curiosity and playfulness. One day, when the team puts on an exhibition at an air show, he ruins the exhibition. Afterwards, Tae-Hoon is kicked out of the “Black Eagles” and transferred to the 21 combat flight unit, which is led by Dae-Seo. Tae-Hoon begins to rely on Dae-Seo like a real older brother. Meanwhile, Tae-Hoon finds himself at odds with Cheol-Hee, who is rigid, and thought of as the best pilot in the 21 combat flight unit. Tae-Hoon prepares to take on Cheol-Hee in a flight contest. Tae-Hoon asks head of maintenance Se-Young (Shin Se-Kyung) for help. Then, up in the sky in Yeouido, an unidentified fighter plane appears, and Tae-Hoon, Dae-Seo, Yoo-Jin and Seok-Hyun must make a sortie.
“Soar into the Sun” (aka “Return to Base”) also stars Shin Se-Kyung, Yu Jun-Sang, Lee Ha-Na, Kim Sung-Su, Lee Jong-Suk, and Jung Suk-Won. The film will bow in South Korean theaters on August 15th, 2012.
