Fresh off his role in ‘Lucy,’ Korean star Choi Min Sik blasts back in to theaters with the upcoming US release of his new film CJ E&M called ‘The Admiral: Roaring Currents.’ Choi Min Sik has gotten a lot of international and domestic praise for his ability to completely become the character that he is portraying, a skill that was of incredible use for him in this most recent film.
‘The Admiral: Roaring Currents’ tells the story of one of the most famous battles in Korean history, the Myeong-Nyang. In 1597 the Joseon Dynasty had been under attack for six years. Out-gunned and out-manned, Admiral Yi Sun Shin, 12 battleships and a relative handful of unconvinced soldiers managed to defeat the Japanese and their 300+ ships.
One of the most astounding things about this movie is that the production team constructed 8 life-size authentic ships for filming! The sweeping, epic and awe-inspiring story opened in Korea on the 30th and earned the highest sales for the night. Now, the sweeping historical epic is coming to America! Slated for US release on August 15th, ‘The Admiral: Roaring Currents’ is sure to be a hit with US audiences as well.
The preview promises a heart-pounding and beautifully shot event, make sure you see it when it opens in theaters!
