Korean movie stars Hyun Bin and Jang Dong-Gun will be in Singapore on 30 October to promote their new film “Rampant”. It will be their only international promotional visit for the zombie horror film, which opens islandwide on 1 November.

This will be Hyun’s first trip to Singapore since 2013, when he attended a fan-meeting event at Bugis+ mall. As for Jang, he last appeared in Singapore in 2005 for a promotional trip for “The Promise”, which also starred Hong Kong actress Cecilia Cheung.

The duo, along with director Kim Sung-Hoon, will be attending the film’s gala premiere, as well as a public meet-and-greet event during their visit. Details of these events will be announced at a later date.

From the same producers of the hit horror movie “Train to Busan”, “Rampant” is set in medieval times in Korea, where undead demons are threatening the royal palace. Hyun plays Prince Ganglim, who reluctantly battles the demons and infected peasants while fending off his Minister of War (Jang), who has his eyes on the throne.

This is Hyun’s fourth movie in two years, while Jang’s recent projects include TV series “Suits” and the thriller “Seven Years of Night”.
