[Movie 2014] 김남길(Kim Nam Gil) 's 'The Pirates' releases full trailer , to premiere on August 6

One of the highest budget films of 2014 'The Pirates' releases the full trailer showcasing the grand character and story plot of the movie.

Excerpt from Hancinema:

With 120 staff overseeing 3,000 costumes, the film was ambitious and took a year to complete. Director Lee Seok-hoon said his work, loosely based on the Great Seal of Korea going missing during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) was "a fusion of history and imagination".

For the lead Son, rather than historical or comedic appeal, she couldn't turn down the irresistible female pirate lead, Yeo-wol.

"I've never tried an action film, and in what small portion of action there was in my previous comedy or melodrama works, I found it so hard", said Son. When shooting got underway in the middle of winter, Son admitted she wanted to cry and that all she can remember now is "how cold it was".

"But this character is unprecedented in Korea, so I thought I should get on board before I get older", Son said.

The film opens Aug. 6

[NEWS 2014] キム・ナムギル Kim Nam Gil 김남길 to star with Jeon Do-yeon in The Rogue

Kim Nam-gil (Shark) will work for the first time opposite veteran actress Jeon Do-yeon in the upcoming movieThe Rogue, written and directed by Oh Seung-wook (Kilimanjaro) The suspense film will be about an investigator on the hunt for a killer, the killer’s girlfriend and the unexpected and carnal attraction that develops between the officer and the killer’s mate.
Jeon Do-yeon has been cast as the murderer’s significant other — when he goes on the lam she awaits his return. In his absence Kim Nam-gil establishes himself in her life, but she doesn’t know he’s a cop tracking her boyfriend and she begins to fall for him. It’s a role described as one requiring the co-existence of despairimmorality, tenacity and purity but we know Jeon Do-yeon can pull it off — during her almost 25-year career (um, kind of crazy but I remember watching her and Jang Dong-gun in their debut drama Our Paradise), she’s put in some amazing performances and has been recognized for her work both domestically and internationally.
Kim Nam-gil’s character is hell-bent on finding the criminal by any means necessary. Eventually he is unable to deny his feelings for Jeon Do-yeon, and we’ll see him struggle with his growing desire to be with her and his responsibility to capture and put her man behind bars This was a smart next project for Kim, as this meaty role (partnered with an always solid actress) in a heavier crime movie will follow the release of the blockbuster Piratethis summer Jeon also has a big budget production being released soon, Gallant Woman: Memory of the Sword
The Rogue is expected to begin filming in mid-June, after Jeon Do-yeon returns from serving on the jury at the Cannes Film Festival

[Interview] キム・ナムギル Kim Nam Gil 김남길 - Rising Star in Asia

Reporter: How do you feel about the "Rising Actor of Asia" award?

KNG: I don't know if I'm qualify for this award, but I hope in the future I can act good to repay everyone.

Reporter: Have you notice or do you like any Asian actor? Do you want to do Hong Kong movie?

KNG: I like Leslie Cheung a lot, I still like his "Days of Being Wild", also Chow Yun Fat, Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Hong Kong movie "A Better Tomorrow" by director John Woo. Hong Kong martial arts movies are well known overseas, especially I like "Red Cliff" and "Three Kingdoms" film series, in addition, also like comical movies starring Stephen Chow, if I have the opportunity I would like to try martial arts movie.

Reporter: In "Bad Guy" is the characters personality very different than your own personality?

KNG: Yes, my own personality is cheerful, humorous, there was a big difference to portray the character in "Bad Guy", therefore, it was a big pressure when I portrayed it, however, last July I starred in another movie "Pirates" which will release soon, this time I portrayed a cheerful character, closer to the real me.

Reporter: From "Bad Buy", "Shark" and "Queen Seondeok" and many other dramas, which one is your favorite?

KNG: My favorite is "Bad Guy", because I am not like that character in real life, it was good to try to be a bad guy.

Reporter: Have you seen the recent popular drama "My Love from the Star"? If have the opportunity which role would you like to play in "My Love from the Star"?

KING: I have seen it, if I have the opportunity I would like to try Jun Ji Hyun's character "Cheon Song Yi", I feel she's not afraid to show her emotions, did well in the love parts, is a very interesting role.

Reporter: Which part of your body are you most satisfy? Often with long hair and mustache, do you think it particularly suit you?

KNG: Most satisfy with my butt, because it's firm. (not sure if it's the right word. lost in translation) Long hair and mustache to accommodate the characters needs, I feel this image can differentiate with other Korean actors, but after done filming "Pirates" I shaved the mustache.

Reporter: You launched an album "Roman" before, do you have confidence with your singing skill?

KNG: To say have confidence, let say I like to sing a lot, I like to sing karaoke to relieve stress, but I mostly sing 80 's and 90 's old songs.

Reporter: Do you have favorite Korean singer group?

KNG: Korean boy group Big Bang and girl group 2NE1.

Reporter: Your early movie "No Regret" portrayed a gay man, you had passionate scenes with the other actor, next movie "Portrait of a Beauty" had passionate scenes with the actress, which one do you feel is harder?

KING: It is harder to have passionate scenes with actress, because with actor you don't have to care too much, will have less pressure, have to be careful with actress when filming passionate scenes, can't be too close.

Reporter: If the story needs to, are you acceptable to go nude? Do you have confidence with your body?

KNG: Of course I can, as long as the story needs to, if necessary right now I can undress. I'm not particularly confidence with my body, but I do sports, such as yoga and soccer, also I participate the entertainment circle's star soccer team.

Reporter: In 2010, you served two years of military service, were you afraid that you will lose fans?

KNG: Indeed I worried, during the military period the most difficult was not able to see fans, also I did not know after I release from service, will I lose many fans along, I was fortunate to shoot "Bad Guy" and after release, shoot "Shark" got many Asian fans love it, made me more appreciate for the acting opportunity.

Parents give up on rushing me to get married 33 years old Kim Nam Gil and 32 years old actress Son Ye Jin first collaborated in drama "Shark" and new movie "Pirates" started rumor, during the interview he replied their rumor, said that they are just very close, in drama acting intimate, in reality when with each other and a little intimate will start rumor.

He also revealed his ideal type, he likes broad-minded women. When asked if he has any plan for marriage? He said with a smile if he meet his ideal woman he will get married as soon as possible, but it is hard for actors to get married early, when he sees his friends already have kids, he will envy them having a happy family, but said with a smile his parents already give up on rushing him to get married.
