RYU SEUNG-WAN STARS & DIRECTS

Ryu Seung-Wan, the director of ARAHAN and CRYING FIST, likes action. A lot. And he's a student of Tae Kwon Do. Previously you had to get a couple of drinks in him to get him leaping and kicking, but now he's doing it for the camera in his own movie, CITY OF VIOLENCE. This flick is barreling down on theaters at lightning speed, and CJ Entertainment is distributing it which means it'll get plenty of attention and probably travel to a bunch of film festivals since the folks at CJ are pretty savvy about their international profile. The plot? Pure, old school kung fu bliss:

The year is 2005. Tae-su, a detective fighting organized crime, returns to his hometown for his high school friend Wang-jae's funeral. At the funeral, he meets with his old friends Pil-ho, Dong-hwan and Seok-hwan and recollects their past. Tae-su and Seok-hwan suspects something fishy about Wang-jae's death and starts to investigate it each in his own way. The more they find out, the more they realize that Wang-jae's death is connected to a land development project that Pil-ho is directing and the two embark on a difficult battle…

Since he's the director and the star, I assume Ryu Seung-Wan has cast himself as Tae-Su.
