Listed as one of our most hotly anticipated films of 2013 and definitely getting positive treatment from netizens, comes the trailer for this summers “Cold Eyes 감시자들”.
As mentioned back in 2012 this film may change titles and it seems to have landed the name “Cold Eyes” rather than its working title name “Stake Out” which just happens to be the literal translation of its Korean title, 감시자들 (gam-si-ja-deul).
Directed by JOH Ui -Seok 조의석 who made a big name for himself in Korea with his breakout film Make it Big일단 뛰어! (2002) and The World of Silence 조용한 세상 (2006), this is his first film back in 7 years. He was greatly praised for his ability to concentrate on character development and that alone should be something to look forward to. The film is also co-directed by Kim Byeong-seo 김병서 who makes his first big film debut in the directors chair.
