Official posters for film “I Saw The Devil” has been unveiled as the pic gears up for its summer box office debut next month.
Film’s distributor Showbox announced in a press release on Wednesday that the Lee Byung-hun starrer will hit local theaters on August 11 and released two official movie posters featuring Lee and Choi Min-sik.
With two of the country’s top actors in the lead roles, the thriller pic is being lauded as one of the year’s most anticipated movies.
“Devil” is helmed by noted filmmaker Kim Ji-woon, who has directed both actors in his previous films; Choi in “The Quiet Family” (1998), and Lee in “A Bittersweet Life” (2005) and “The Good, The Bad, The Weird “(2008).
Lee, 40, has long been considered one of the most popular actors in Korea with dozens of television dramas and films under his belt.
The actor enjoyed a particularly successful year in 2009, making his Hollywood debut in action flick “GI Joe” and co-starring with Josh Hartnett and Takuya Kimura in the film “I Come With The Rain.”
Choi, 48, has starred in numerous films, most notably “Swiri” (1999), “Oldboy” (2003) and “Sympathy for Lady Vengeance” (2005).
