Although Rain isn’t wearing sunglasses in the latest teaser poster for director Kim Dong-Won’s upcoming aerial action flick “Soar Into the Sun”, I’m still fairly certain that the film is going to be entertaining. I’m getting a strong “Top Gun” vibe from the promotional material I’ve seen thus far, which could work in the film’s favor. And the less Rain reminds me of Tom Cruise, the better. Otherwise, let the pretty guy fly and jet and blow stuff up. I’ll watch it.
Here’s an intriguing plot synopsis:
A South Korean Elite Black Eagles Air Force pilot Tae-hun finds himself transferred to a combat flying unit after a cocky, unplanned, and dangerous air show demonstration. On the first day of his transfer to F15K, he meets Cheol-hui, the unit’s own top gun. Tae-hun is free-spirited, whereas Cheol-hui plays by the rules, and the two come into conflict almost immediately. However, Tae-hun quickly befriends his other colleagues: Dae-seo, Yu-jin, and Seok-hyeon. He also falls in love with Se-yeong, who is in charge of maintenance. Tae-hun continues his free-spirited ways and his antics get suspended from duty. Then one day, reconnaissance mission turns into an unexpected incident, ending in Dae-seo’s untimely death and Seok-hyeon’s disappearance. Initially blaming Cheol-hui for the tragedy, he and Tae-hun eventually come to an emotional understanding. Now the F15K make preparations to stop a war and rescue their missing comrade.
“Soar into the Sun”, which also stars Shin Se-Kyung, Yu Jun-Sang, Lee Ha-Na, Kim Sung-Su, Lee Jong-Suk, and Jung Suk-Won, opens in South Korea this August.
