Returning to another Fun Story OTW we have Super Junior’s Siwon and Jackie Chan together, however the pair of friends have been brought together for Jackie Chan’s film Dragon Blade!
‘Dragon Blade’ is said to be one of the biggest upcoming films in China starring Jackie Chan, faces off with American actor John Cusack starring as soldiers whilst Adrien Brody plays General Tiberius. in the forthcoming Chinese epic. Costing over $65 million to produce, it shows off a one of the largest budgets for a Chinese film.
One of the leading actors of the film is none other than Super Junior’s Siwon who seems to be very busy acting lately, having two more films lined up for release in 2015: ‘Helios’ and ‘To the Fore’, ‘Dragon Blade’ is the first of his films to reach theaters this year.
The press conferences and promotional tour for the movie took place in Shanghai on the 6th February, Singapore on the 10th February, Malaysia on the 11th and on the 12th February it is being held in Taiwan, where the conference was not ones most would expect. The events were filled with laughter with all actors sharing funny anecdotes of what it was like working with each other. Many of the actors shared particularly the struggle with the language barriers they coped with since the cast is filled with Chinese, American and Korean actors amongst each other.
Siwon plays Yinpo in the film; a talented Chinese General in the film supporting Jackie Chan’s character Huo An. He enlightened a media news outlet with stories of working with the Hollywood actors and Chinese actresses in the movie as well as answering an amusing questions of his rather large beard he sported in the film as well as if he saw his fellow Super Junior members or his pet French bulldog; Bugsy. Being fluent in English, it is apparent he has helped the American actors in translating much of the things said during filming and promotions. Siwon here as a result was able to give the interview fully in English.
