Trailer For Korean Box Office Smash The Thieves

Choi Dong-hoon's crime caper The Thieves was a monster smash hit in South Korea, where it sold 500,000 tickets on the first day of release and went on to shift more than ten million admissions over three weeks.

It has earned the crown as Korea's top grossing movie and it opens in cinemas in the USA on 12 October 2012.

The movie features an international cast of Korean and Chinese stars that includes Gianna Jun from the live action Blood - The Last Vampire, the always excellent Simon Yam, Lee Jung-jae from The Housemaid, and Kim Yun-seok who was awesome as the unstoppable mobster Myun-ga in The Yellow Sea.

The plot sees a disparate collection of thieves join forces to try to pull off an audacious heist - to steal The Tear Of The Sun, a diamond worth US$20 million.

The US trailer is below to give you a taste.

If Choi's name sounds familiar, his last film was Woochi - The Demon Slayer which came out here in the UK courtesy of Cine Asia.

Fingers crossed The Thieves will get picked up for a UK release as it looks like a blast.
