Last year, it was announced that MBLAQ’s Lee Joon will star in a movie produced by the world-renowned director, Kim Ki-duk. I became very excited the moment that I read the news because Joon have always dreamed of being a great actor. In one episode of Strong Heart, he even told Kim Ki-duk that he wanted to be a cast in one of the director’s movies so he left his contact number at Kim Kiduk’s webpage!
배우는 배우다/Actor is an Actor/Rough Play is a movie directed by Shin Yeonshik. The male lead role will be played by MBLAQ’s Lee Joon and the female lead will be Seo Younghee. The movie is about a guy(Lee Joon/Oh Yeong) who dreamed of being an actor. After getting a break in the acting scene and after being popular, Joon’s character will once again fall back into the ground.
Last week, an official announcement was made about Rough Play. The news articles said that the movie will have its worldwide premiere at the Busan Film Festival on October. Lee Joon is also expected to walk down the red carpet at the film festival. The official release of the movie in cinemas will be on October 24, 2013(HUHU THE SAME DATE AS SS5 MANILA!).
Some of the still cuts from the movie along with the official movie poster! I got overly excited when I saw the still cuts and I even cried! This was my first time spazzing over a Korean movie because one of my biases is the lead actor!
And today was the day I’ve waited for! Finally they released a teaser of the movie! I came to know about the trailer when one of my friends sent me an image of Lee Joon acting on the movie. When I saw the picture, I came to realize that it came from a snapshot from a video. Meaning, there was a released video for Rough Play! I immediately searched 배우는 배우다 on Twitter and saw the links of the video! I cried again when I watched the 30-second video of Rough Play starring Lee Joon! I felt like a proud mom watching her child performing and doing his best in his craft. ㅠ.ㅠ

Some says that the video released today will be the official trailer or 예고편 but I think the video is just a teaser and not really a trailer! I think they will release a longer video soon.
I hope that this movie will be a hit! I remembered the time when I was just talking with one of the members of the production team of this movie on Twitter. He kept us updated about the progress of the movie and he even tweeted some pictures from the filming set! And now, here I am, doing the countdown for the release of this movie! I will definitely buy the DVD of this movie!
Please give lots of love to Rough Play! ❤
