Action Star Choi Min Sik Takes on Supernatural Thrill Ride in Exhuma edited

Korean cinema veteran Choi Min-sik, best known for his best performances in “Oldboy” and “Roaring Currents,” is back on the big screen with a chilling mystery-thriller titled “Exhuma.”

Stepping into the role of a powerful geomancer, Choi Min-sik leads the charge in unraveling a terrifying ancestral curse that plagues a wealthy family in Los Angeles. When a series of paranormal events threaten their newborn child, the desperate family turns to a pair of young shamans, played by rising stars Kim Go-eun and Lee Do-hyun.

Guided by their intuition, the shamans sense a sinister presence attached to the family – a “Grave’s Calling,” as it’s ominously known. To break the curse and appease the restless spirit, they seek the expertise of Choi’s geomancer and a skilled mortician, played by the versatile Yoo Hai-jin.

Their quest leads them to a remote Korean village, where the cursed grave lies hidden. The exhumation, however, unleashes a malevolent force far more powerful than they imagined. Now, the unlikely team must confront this ancient evil and find a way to stop it before it consumes them all.

Exhuma” is a collaborative effort between Showbox and Pinetown Production, with the esteemed MCMC studio lending its support. The film is directed by Jang Jae-hyun, known for his critically acclaimed works like “Svaha: The Sixth Finger” and “The Priests,” ensuring a masterfully crafted experience.

Choi Min-sik, a powerhouse actor with a filmography boasting iconic roles in “Oldboy,” “Shiri,” “I Saw the Devil,” and Luc Besson’s “Lucy,” brings his undeniable charisma and intensity to the role of the geomancer. He’s joined by an equally impressive supporting cast, including Kim Go-eun, the star of Netflix’s “Little Women” and hit series “Guardian” and “Eungyo.” Yoo Hai-jin, known for his diverse roles in “The Night Owl,” “Confidential Assignment 2: International,” and “Space Sweepers,” adds another layer of depth to the narrative. Completing the team is Lee Do-hyun, a rising star with credits in “The Good Bad Mother,” “The Glory,” and “Sweet Home,” who brings his youthful energy and talent to the mix.

“Exhuma” is set to debut in Korean theaters in February, sending shivers down the spines of audiences nationwide. With its captivating plot, stellar cast, and proven director, this film promises to be a thrilling cinematic ride that will leave you wanting more.

The film is set to premiere in Korean theaters on February 22, 2024. Currently, there is no information about a global theatrical release for audiences outside of Korea and, no official announcements about “Exhuma” being available on any streaming platforms. We’ll need to wait for confirmation from distributors or the production team.
