This is Kim Soo Hyun’s latest big screen project.
The new Korean action thriller movie “Real” was released on Wednesday. The movie features Kim Soo Hyun and Choi Jin Ri in the lead roles. However, the production company of the movie has reported to the police about the theft of its intellectual property. They asked the police to investigate the leak of some of the film’s scenes.
The production team reported that some parts of the film were filmed illegally at a theater, and then was posted online one day after it premiered in local cinemas. The production company has decided to take legal action against the culprit by requesting the cyber investigation unit of a local police station to investigate the matter. It further added that it cannot sit idle while the scenes are being shared on social media. Moreover, this has not only happened within Korea but outside its borders as well.
