Movie “Two Constables” (“Two Patrol” / “두포졸”), co-starring with Seol Kyeong Gu.  Based in the Joseon times during the era of King Seongjeon, this movie tells the story of a veteran fraud policeman suddenly finding himself paired up with a rookie soldier while on the hunt for corruption in the Royal Court, thereby putting all the noblemen in fear.  This production will be helmed by esteemed director Kang Woo Suk, who also directed the previous iterations of this buddy-cop trilogy (“Two Cops” and “Two Cops 2”).  Production of the movie has been postponed due to funding problems, and it remains to be seen if the film will be released at all.  (Our article on the production issues is here.)
