So Ji-Sub Gets an Assassinating Makeover in the South Korean Thriller A Company Man

No Comments

The world can never have enough revenge thrillers. Actually, scratch that — the world can never have enough South Korean revenge thrillers. The country cranks out some of the best I’ve seen, and I’m hoping writer/director feature-length debut Lim Sang-yoon’s upcoming assassin-versus-assassins endeavor “A Company Man” keeps that tradition alive. Television pretty boy So Ji-Sub holds a gun pretty well, so my hopes are fairly high.

Have a look at this synopsis, courtesy of Han Cinema:

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?

“A Company Man” is scheduled to arrive in South Korean theaters later this year. In order to help spread the word, a nifty promotional poster has been unleashed. Take a look.
