A Chat With the Cast of ‘Time to Hunt,’ the Korean Heist Film You Should Watch Next
If you’re getting a sugar overdose from those romantic K-dramas the lady in your life has been subjecting you to, then it’s about time you streamed Time to Hunt. It’s a Korean action-drama set in a dystopian version of Seoul. It comes straight from the imagination of director Yoon Sung-hyun, on only his second film after 2011’s Bleak Night, an independent film about a school friendship gone awry. Time to Hunt had its international premiere at the 70th Berlin Film Festival last February, the first Korean film to gain such an honour.
Yoon’s thriller revolves around a heist orchestrated by orphan Jun-seok (Lee Je-hoon) with his friends, the vaguely simple-minded Jang-ho (Ahn Jae-hong) and devoted son Ki-hoon (Parasite’s Choi Woo-shik). They recruit an inside man named Sang-soo (Park Jeong-min) to help them steal a pile of American dollars from an illegal gambling den run by gangsters. But as it so often happens in these heists, complications arise, and the four friends are soon pursued by a terrifyingly implacable assassin (Park Hae-soo).
