Ha Jung-woo, Lee Sun-kyun talk “Take Point” on V

Appearing on a V Movie broadcast with emcee Park Kyung-lim, the two said the film, a war-themed action thriller, would draw the audience in.

“It may feel like you’re actually inside the bunker,” Ha said.

Lee added, “It has many intense and thrilling scenes that the audience can feel they are part of.”

Directed by Kim Byung-woo, best known for the 2013 film “The Terror Live,” “Take Point” centers on a private military company -- a group of elite mercenaries hired for a secret CIA mission to abduct North Korea’s defense minister in an underground bunker below the Demilitarized Zone, which separates the two Koreas.

Besides Ha and Lee, it stars Kevin Durand, Jennifer Ehle, Spencer Daniels, Robert Curtis Brown and Malik Yoba.

It is set for release in Korea on Dec. 26.

Jinyoung revealed that it was his second solo broadcast and he still felt a little nervous and awkward.

The livestream went on for nearly an hour and consists of two segments due to an interrupted connection.

Jinyoung chatted casually with the fans, answering some of their questions.

“I am listening to EXO’s latest album, ‘Love Shot.’ The title track is good, but I like ‘Wait’” he said.
