Korean actor Jung Jae-young will be joining a film starring actor Hyun Bin.

Jung will be in a movie tentatively titled “King’s Wrath,” an official with Jung‘s agency LDV Encontents told TenAsia over the phone on Wednesday.

Jung will be playing a character named Gapsu who is raised to assassinate King Jeongjo, who will be played by Hyun Bin.

The film will revolve around the struggle between those who try to assassinate the King versus those who try to protect him.

Also, though various media outlets have reported that actor Cho Jung-seok has also been cast for the film, his agency Dreamstar Entertainment denied the news.

An official with Dreamstar said Cho is still checking on his schedule and therefore, he has yet to confirm his joining the movie’s cast.

Meanwhile, the new movie will be Hyun Bin’s first film since his discharge from the military in December 2012.
