Yoo Ah In’s Blockbuster Film “Veteran” is Coming to DVD Worldwide
“Veteran” is coming to DVD worldwide on July. Having released the Blu-Ray on April 5th in North America, “Veteran” is out for preorder now in Yesasia!
The blockbuster garnered attention in 2015 as the third highest grossing Korean film of all time, racking up $85 million at the box-office. “Veteran” has gathered several awards under its belt through Yoo Ah In’s and director Ryu’s performance, such as the 2016 Baeksang Arts Awards, 2016 Golden Film Festival, 2016 Max Movie Awards, 2016 Korean Film Reporters Association Awards, 2015 Korea Film Actor’s Association Awards, and 2015 Korean Association of Film Critics Awards.
Yoo Ah In portrays Jo Tae Oh with sheer bravado, forcing audiences to confront their true feelings about corporate scions and the transparency of the relationship between the Korean business world and laws enforcement.
“He was known to the Korean public as having a childlike image and was viewed as a healthy, young man,” said director Ryoo Seung Wan, in reference to Yoo Ah In. “At the time, he wanted to deviate from those types of roles and he wanted to try out something new. It was a fortunate case where the requirements of the film matched up with the actor’s desires to try something different.”
Produced by Ryu Seung Wan’s R&K and distributed by CJ E&M, “Veteran” strikes a chord with audiences who have grown accustomed to viewing the juxtaposition of scrappy protagonists who attempt to take on the challenges of a system rife with corruption.
On last February 26th, Yoo Ah In reunited with the “Veteran” casts; Hwang Jung Min, Yoo Hae Jin, Oh Dal Soo, Jang Yoon Ju, and director Ryu Seung Wan, in a studio, to record their commentary for the DVD commentaries.
Yoo Ah In and Jang Yoon Joo posted their reunion photos in their instagram accounts as well~
Yoo Ah In said on the caption, “Hello, Veteran”, while Jang Yoon Ju added the caption, “Today I met and had fun with these pleasant people. Re-united after a long time. We are Veteran 🙂 ”
The DVD contains special features:
