Choi Si-won to appear in China-US epic movie Dragon Blade
The trailer for Chinese epic feature film Dragon Blade, starring Jackie Chan as well as Hollywood actors Adrian Brody and John Cusack, has been published on YouTube by online magazine CHECK, on December 25. JoyN’Contents will distribute the film in South Korea, but it is yet to be confirmed if it will be released in the UK, and by whom.
The film marks Super Junior’s Choi Siwon return to film acting, since Attack on the Pin-Up Boys (2007) and his second appearance in a Chinese epic feature film after Jacob Cheung’s A Battle of Wits (2006). On the TV drama scene he is also making a comeback, with the Chinese remake of The Heirs to air in 2015 (his latest TV drama was Korea’s The King of Dramas in 2012), and in which he plays the role of Lu Zi Hao.
Siwon’s focus is now definitely on the Chinese market, where Dragon Blade will be released in February 2015 as well as Billion Dollar Heir (Shanghai TV, broadcast date not yet confirmed). The latter is already scheduled to stream on Viki, so keep an eye on when it’s ready.
