Seohyun, Kim Nam Gil, Lee Ho Jung, and other members of Girls' Generation are teaming up for a new historical drama!
"Thief: Sound of the Sword" (literal title) is set in 1920, when individuals hurl a defiant punch against those who have chased them out of their homes in order to safeguard their land, families, and comrades. The past of defeat will be converted into a tale of victory through fictional characters. Hwang Joon Hyuk will direct the drama, and Han Jung Hoon will write it. The two previously collaborated on "Bad Guys 2" and "Squad 38."
Kim Nam Gil will play Lee Yoon, a guy who served in the Japanese military in the past. He leaves everything behind to travel to Gando (also known as Jiandao, a historical border region in Northeast China) and work as a thief protecting the land and people. Seohyun, who has previously been in "Through the Darkness," "The Fiery Priest," and "Memoir of a Murderer," will play Nam Hee Shin, who covers her identity and becomes the chief of the Japanese Government-General of Korea's Railway Bureau.
Choi Choong Soo, a former general of the righteous army (informal citizen militias) and the landlord of a Korean village in Gando, will be played by Yoo Jae Myung. "Reply 1988," "Vincenzo," "Itaewon Class," "Voice of Silence," and other films include the actor. Lee Hyun Wook will play Lee Gwang Il, a shrewd Japanese military executive with a strained relationship with Lee Yoon. Lee Ho Jung will also star as Eon Nyeon, a gunman heading to Gando after receiving a request to kill Lee Yoon in "Strangers From Hell," "The Good Detective," "Search," "She Would Never Know," and "Mine."
