The film’s main actor Ha Jung Woo told carpet MC Kim Tae Jin: “I believe this is the most exciting and fun moment for an actor who has just finished shooting his film. I’m very thankful so many people have been showing their support.”
Co-star Han Seok Kyu added: “In 1998, when the film Swiri remiered, I toured the nation with 50 rolls of film. Now, movies can premiere in 800 screens at the most.
