Korean heartthrobs Lee Jong-suk and Cha Eun-woo, member of K-pop boy band ASTRO, have been cast in a new action film titled “Decibel.”
It was announced that the two will be starring in the film along with Kim Rae-won, Jung Sang-hoon, Park Byung-eun, Jo Dal-hwan and Lee Sang-hee. Filming began last April 20.
This will be Lee Jong-suk’s first movie following his discharge from military service last Jan. 2 while this will be Cha Eun-woo’s film debut. “Decibel” tells the story of the Navy that will try to stop a terrorism attack in the city.
In “Decibel,” Lee Jong-suk will play a Navy captain who is loyal to his crew while Cha Eun-woo will essay the role of a sailor with keen hearing.
Last January, it was reported that Lee Jong-suk was considering to star in “Decibel.” His agency A-Man Project said, “It is true that Lee Jong Suk has received an offer to join ‘Decibel.’ The actor is positively reviewing the script,” according to SBS News.
