It’s rare that I actually cover a movie, but this particular one is just releasing a lot of interesting stills that I feel is worth sharing. Plus it’s a Kim Soo Hyun movie!
The crime caper Thieves—about a Korean gang who team up with a Chinese gang to steal “The Sun’s Tear” diamond from a Macau casino—recently completed its six-month shoot, and a couple of stills have just been made public.
It’s gotten a lot of buzz because of the number of A-list stars that will be part of the film. Thieves will be helmed by director Choi Dong-hoon (Tazza, The Big Swindle, and Jeon Woo Chi).
Lee Jung-jae (The Housemaid) plays Popie, the boss of the Korean team, and a specialist in wiring.
Jeon Ji-hyun (Blood: The Last Vampire) plays Enicall, a tightrope specialist. She’s apparently also got quite the sailor’s tongue, along with a penchant for stealing sparkly things.
Kim Soo-hyun (The Moon that Embraces the Sun) will be playing Zampano, Popeye’s protege, and the youngest on his team. He shows an attachment to Enicall (Jeon Ji Hyun), and ends up in a kiss scene with her.
Kim Hye-soo (Home Sweet Home, Tazza) plays Pepsee, a legendary safecracker, who’s never once touched a safe she couldn’t crack.
Kim Yoon-seok (The Chaser, Jeon Woo-chi) plays Macao Park, who specializes in blueprints and he’ll be the one bringing all the thieves together for the big heist.
