Nice. Take a look at the stills from the upcoming war film Into the Gunfire, which stars Kwon Sang-woo and TOP (Choi Seung-hyun) as student soldiers in the Korean War.
They portray two of 71 young students (hence the film’s original title, 71, back when it starred Kim Bum and Yoo Seung-ho) who took a stand against Northern invaders in a battle that would become a pivotal turning point in the war, which began on June 25, 1950.
In these stills, TOP plays Jang-bum, who with his fellow student soldiers goes out to gather food supplies. The soldiers, along with Gab-jo (Kwon Sang-woo), who is fooling around with a grenade, end up blowing up the grain silo. The large-scale explosion scene was filmed safely without injuries.
Kwon Sang-woo explained that he’d sustained minor injuries from shooting their action scenes in the cold weather and slippery conditions, such as shoots requiring him to run after North Korean soldiers, “but seeing the staff who suffers even more than me gives me encouragement. I’m doing my best.”
TOP said, “Following IRIS, to do a movie on such a large scale is an honor. I’m working hard not to cause this film any problems, staying up all day and night rehearsing and filming.”
Into the Gunfire is scheduled to release in June 2010 in time to commemorate the 60 years that have passed since the war first broke out. Likewise, the Korean War-set drama Road Number 1 (starring So Ji-sub, Yoon Kye-sang, and Kim Haneul) is also planning for a June premiere.
T.O.P. in uniform? hell yes.
