We don’t know if and when Kim Soo Hyun’s new movie, Real, will be coming to Singapore, but if it does, expect to show your identification card when you buy tickets.
The movie, starring the actor and Sulli, has been slapped a teenager-restricted or 19+ rating in South Korea – similar to an M18 rating in Singapore – which means no persons under 19 can watch the movie.
According to Korean news outlets, the Korea Media Rating Board gave it that rating because of “sex scenes, nudity, murder using knives, and the production and consumption of drugs.” They added, “Because of the theme of power play in criminal organisations and dialogue, there is a risk of copycat crimes.”
Real is an action noir thriller that revolves around the story of two men who get entangled in the secrets and conspiracies surrounding a casino. Soo Hyun will be playing two roles in the movie, and the lineup also includes veteran actors Sung Dong Il and Lee Sung Min.
The movie will hit the silver screens in South Korea on June 28, 2017. Watch the trailer below (in Korean, with Korean subtitles).
Of course, we can’t be sure that the movie will have a similar rating if it’s screened in Singapore, but if it does get anything below M18, you can probably expect some scenes to be cut.
