THE VILLAINESS: Check Out A Batch Of Stills For Jung Byuong-Gil's New Action Thriller


Whether or not you choose to look at Confession Of Murder helmer writer and director Jung Byuong-Gil's newest, The Villainess, as South Korea's answer to John Wick or Nikita is entirely up to you. The bottom line however, is that it exists, and nothing short of a step-up for Korean action cinema with actress and martial artist Kim Ok-Vin leading the way.

The film is poised for an early-hours Sunday morning Out-Of-Competition screening at Cannes before rolling out in June and the trailer above has already offered plenty on what we can expect. In the meantime, we do have a batch of stills you can revel in for the time being as the film inches closer to its festival outing. Shin Ha-Kyun, Bang Sung-Jun and Kim Seo-Hyung also star.
Since she was a little girl, Sook-hee was brought up to become a deadly assassin. She gets a second chance in life when South Korea’s Intelligence Agency’s Chief Kwon recruits her to become a sleeper cell.  
“Work for us for 10 years, you’ll gain freedom.” 
Her new identity is Chae Yeon-soo, 27 years old, theater actress. With a promise of complete freedom after serving the country for 10 years, Sook-hee begins a new life. For someone who lived a life of a killer, living a normal life is no easy task. But when 2 men appear in her life suddenly, she uncovers secrets of her past…
Check out the stills below!
