After revealing its plan of closing the year with an epic sci-fi tale, anticipated blockbuster movie Seobok teases with yet another eye-catching poster. This time, the special dynamics between the characters of lead actors Gong Yoo and Park Bo-gum has been unveiled.
Seobok follows former intelligence agent Ki-hun (Gong Yoo, Kim Ji-young: Born 1982) on the last and most dangerous mission of his career. He is tasked to secretly transport Seobok (Park Bo-gum, Coin Locker Girl), mankind’s first successful human clone who also holds the key to eternal existence. As people with evil intentions go after them, Ki-hun puts his life on the line to protect Seobok.
The upcoming film released its newest poster on November 16, which features the melancholic facial expressions of the two protagonists as they stand by each other’s side. Having spent all his life inside a research facility, the image of what is usually considered an ordinary place in the outside world has caught Seobok’s full attention. Dressed in a white lab gown with several belts made for restraining him, the human clone could not help but be in awe of the serenity that is coming from the huge screen in front of him, his eyes longing for a time when he would finally be free to see and feel the ocean.
As it happens, Ki-hun has his empathetic eyes fixed on Seobok. The caption above him reads, “The last thing that I have to protect has appeared,” foreshadowing his commitment to keep the clone safe at all costs because he knows the best thing he could do to help Seobok is to guard him until he attains the life that he could not even dream of until now.
Set to be portrayed by two of the most in-demand actors in South Korea today, curiosity is already firing up for the level of connection that Ki-hun and Seobok are about to share on the big screen soon.
Seobok is helmed by director Lee Yong-joo of the films Possessed (2009) and Architecture 101 (2012). It is slated to hit domestic theaters this December.
