Actor Kim Soo-hyun will return to the silver screen in the second half of next year with the movie "Real," his agency said Thursday.
The movie, slated to start production in October, will be Kim's first appearance on the big screen since 2013.
With the exception of a cameo appearance in the 2014 comedy "Miss Granny," Kim's last major film role was that of a North Korean agent in "Secretly, Greatly," which drew 7 million viewers in 2013.
The upcoming movie is an action film that tells the story of Jang Tae-young, an ambitious criminal who solves problems for his clients.
The movie will be directed by Lee Jeong-seop, whose previous projects include "The Perfect Couple" and "Lost in Love," for which he wrote the screenplays.
Aside from the new film project, the star of the hit drama "My Love from the Star" will return to the small screen in the new KBS drama "Producer." It is set to air on May 8.
