Publicity stills for Song Kang-ho's new movie released on Monday have piqued curiosity about what the actor can show this time since he has already been the focus of attention due to his role in the globally acclaimed film "Parasite."
Song plays the role of King Sejong, who was behind the invention of Hangeul, the Korean alphabet, in the 15th century, in the upcoming period film "The King's Letters."
It will be interesting to see how he portrays the not-well-known human side of one of the greatest kings of Korean history and brings to life the story behind the invention of Hangeul.
"As an actor, it was an honor to play King Sejong. I've got to know more about him that history didn't tell us and feel how great and humane he was," Song said.
Park Hae-il and Jeon Mi-sun co-star in the movie, which is set for release on July 24.
