Cold Eyes not just a Korean remake of Hong Kong thriller Eye In The Sky
The Korean thriller Cold Eyes is a remake of the acclaimed Hong Kong flick Eye In The Sky (2007).
And while the new cast watched the original, they also wanted to put their own spin on the characters.
Speaking to media at Marina Bay Sands on Friday, Jung Woo Sung, 40, says that he watched it only once. He adds: "Watching it too many times wouldn't help me create my character. Something I was looking for was a calm and classy feel and I referred to Le Samourai (1967) with Alain Delon."
His character James is the villain of the piece, while Han Hyo Joo, 26, plays a rookie member of a surveillance team, and boyband 2PM's Lee Jun Ho, 23, is a fellow team member.
