Lee Min Ho's 'Bounty Hunter' Movie Coming to China in July

By Staff Reporter / 2016.05.26

South Korean heartthrob Lee Min Ho's upcoming movie Bounty Hunters is set to hit Chinese theaters on July 1.

The movie was supposed to be released next month, but its release has been postponed because of the need to add some finishing touches, according to Chosun Media's The Chosunilbo. Other than Lee, the cast of Bounty Hunter includes renowned Wallace Chung, Tang Yan, and Tiffany Tang, as well as pretty new faces such as Karena Ng and Jeremy Jones.

On Monday, another trailer for the film was released via Weibo. "The lead actors who love each other through hardship. But the rule of life is that things are always changing. Will they be able to stay together this happily?" the post was captioned.

Bounty Hunters is a Korean-Chinese financed project. It was directed by Shin Tae Ra (from the 7th Grade Civil Servant) and produced by Hong Kong's Raymong Wong Pak Ming.  

The action/romance film revolves around a group of bounty hunters who are chasing fugitives across China, Korea, Thailand, and Hong Kong in exchange for money. In the bounty hunter team, Lee is the brawn, Wallace the trickster, Tang Tang the brains and Karena the wunderkind hacker, according to Koala's Playground.

Although the film has not been released yet, fans have high expectations for it.

Lee Min Ho is one of the most-followed Korean stars on Weibo. He rose to stardom after portraying the rich but arrogant Gu Jun-pyo in TV hit series Boys Over Flowers in 2009 and Kim Tan in The Heirs in 2013.
