The highly anticipated summer blockbuster Korean movie “Battleship Island“, starring Song Joong Ki, So Ji Sub and Hwang Jung Min, released dramatic official trailer and movie stills.
The movie depicts Korean people trying desperately to escape from Battleship Island. Set in the Japanese occupation, the film is based on a true story about a massive prison break from a forced harsh labor camp at the Hashima Island (aka Battleship Island), where Koreans and Chinese were enslaved.
Song Joong Ki plays a Korean independence fighter who infiltrates the camp to liberate a freedom fighting leader. So Ji Sub plays a street fighter who becomes one of the instigators for the prison beak, while Hwang Jung Min plays a father trying to survive and protect his daughter. The three will work together to rally the Korean laborers to escape the island.
“Battleship Island” will premiere July 2017.
