[MHN.Korea.com] 'Believer', a remake film of Johnnie To's 'Drug War' is a story of Asia's biggest drug cartel. It is now playing in theaters since May 22nd. Right before the film's release, we were able to do an interview with Ryu Jun Yeol who plays 'Rock' in the film.
During the interview, Ryu shared that he wants to keep a long career as an actor.
When asked what kind of actor he wanted to be recognized as the actor replied by saying "It's a very commonly asked question but it's hard to answer. I look up to actors who've been doing this a long time. There are many great actors who had great hay-days but being a skilled actor doesn't seem to necessarily guarantee a career with longevity. When many factors add together, like appreciating the staffs, having a healthy mindset and stuff, I think that's when many people and fans keep seeking you. I want to be an actor for a long time. Those actors are my role models."
'Believer' is a film about an investigator, Won Ho (Cho Jin Woong) encountering Rock (Ryu Jun Yeol) and Oh Yeong Ok (Kim Sung Ryung) to bring down Asia's biggest drug cartel run by Harim (Kim Joo Hyuk) and Brian (Cha Seung Won). Rated for viewers over 15.[Translated by] Gen_E
