Kim Woo Bin Transforms into Sexy Safecracker for ‘The Technicians’
Kim Woo Bin will be returning as a sexy safecracker.
The rising star Kim Woo Bin transformed into a safecracker for the film The Technicians (Director Kim Hong Sun/Trinity Entertainment) and is ready to steal the hearts of the audience.
Becoming a rising star in Asia through the film Friend2, dramas School 2013 and The Heirs, Kim Woo Bin will be taking over the big screen this time through The Technicians.
The Technicians depicts the technicians who gather in order to steal 150 billion won in Incheon Customs in 1 hour and 40 minutes, which has the best security in Northeast Asia.
Ji Hyuk, played by Kim Woo Bin, is the ‘master key’ of the industry who can open any safe. He is a multiplayer who is able to make counterfeit money and make action plans with his sharp brain. He makes fake money with a 3D printer and steals from jewelry shops immediately with his careful strategy.
Flying in between buildings using a rope tied around him, he reminds of ‘Yenicall’ from the film The Thieves. Attention has been gathering on whether Kim Woo Bin will be able to create the sexy technician ‘Ji Hyuk,’ following the sexy female burglar ‘Yenicall.’
Kim Woo Bin said, “I enjoyed reading the scenario. I felt confident about the film as I saw the director passionately explaining how he will make the movie. It’s the film that will not let you lose even for a moment and carry on the excitement until the end,” as he expressed his confidence on his first caper film.
As director Kim Hong Sun of The Technicians said, “From the beginning, I didn’t think of any other actor for the role of ‘Ji Hyuk,’” all eyes have been on whether Kim Woo Bin will become the ‘master key’ of the big screen.
As the follow up project of director Kim Hong Sun, who won Best New Director award from 2012 Blue Dragon Film Awards with the film The Traffickers, The Technicians is set to premiere in December.
