The Many Faces Of Choi Min-sik

This week, Luc Besson's new science-fiction-slash-action thriller Lucy premieres, starring Scarlett Johansson as a human who becomes a divine being. Ouch, go easy on the typecasting there, people!

Speaking of which, there is an intense evil Asian dude in the film, and he is played by Choi Min-sik. And that actually is a surprise, as the actor is known for being picky about the roles he plays.

Another thing Choi Min-sik is known for, is that he is a very, VERY good actor, who brings an impressive physicality to each performance, despite not looking at all like an action star.

So once again I'm going to use a gallery of six close-ups of one of my favorite thespians to make a quiz. Click through the images and guess which six movies they're from. No competition, no prizes, just for fun, try to see how far you get without using IMDB.

And I'll post the answers next Thursday (earlier if someone has all six of them right).

And here he is as Mister Jang, the mysterious villain who knows what's happening to Scarlett Johansson's character in Lucy.

Hi All, sorry for the late reply but I was incommunicado for a few days. You guys have them all right! Art Vandelay had them all, bar number 5, which was indeed TAEGUKGI, as first stated by Don Drye.

Well done, all!

Wrong. Taegukgi should be #5.
