First Teaser for Kim Jee-woon’s ‘Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade’
It’s been only two years since Korean director Kim Jee-woon’s last feature film, but he’s already back with his newest futuristic action picture Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade. With the full trailer coming soon, we first get to indulge on the recently released teaser for the adaptation of the popular Mamoru Oshii manga, which had a few prior feature-length iterations.
Taking place sometime in the future, Jin-Roh – also known by its Korean title In-rang – follows the story of the special police unit that has been created to contain the tumultuous activity between North and South Korea, after the countries agree to create a joint government. The first teaser gives us a quick look at the gritty and violent underground activity as well as the seemingly advanced police suits.
Ten years after their first collaboration on The Good the Bad the Weird, Kim Jee-woon and Jung Woo-sung team back up for Jin-Roh. Alongside Woo-sung the film stars Han Hyo-Joo (The Beauty Inside, Dong Yi), Gang Dong-won (Secret Reunion, Too Beautiful to Lie), and Han Ye-ri (Sea Fog, As One, Worst Woman).
While Warner Bros. has no plans for domestic distribution yet, Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade will be released in South Korea in July. Watch the first teaser below.
