[MOVIE] ‘Unbreakable Spirit’ Starring Bruce Willis, Song Seung-Heon, Liu Ye and More to Open in Singapore Cinemas

Unbreakable Spirit is inspired by the WWII’s Japanese bombing of Chongqing in 1941, taking away countless lives. Numerous buildings were also destroyed, causing millions of people to be homeless. This action-war film has one of the highest budgets in the history of Chinese Cinema, assembling stars from all over the world. Mel Gibson also served as the Consultant offscreen for the film.

Leading the U.S. Air Force is Bruce Willis, the man behind the Die Hard franchise (1988 – 2013), with one of his most recent works being Glass earlier this year. The Chinese pilots – played by Chinese actor Liu Ye (Saving Mr. Wu, 2015), Korean heartthrob Song Seung-Heon (Obsessed, 2014), Hong Kong stars William Chan (The Mystic Nine, 2016) and Nicholas Tse (Cook Up A Storm, 2017) – are taken under Bruce Willis’ wing. This is also Song Seung-Heon’s second Chinese project, after The Third Way of Love (2015) with Liu Yifei.

The film also stars Fan Bing Bing (Sky Hunter, 2017), Adrien Brody (Dragon Blade, 2015) and Ma Su (See You Tomorrow, 2016), all known for their illustrious careers.

Film Synopsis:

During World War II, under terrible conditions, lack of resources, weapons, knowledge and experience – the Chinese Air Force fought bravely against the powerful Japanese Imperial Army. Commander Jack Johnson (Bruce Willis) from the United States Air Force not only teaches the Chinese how to battle against the Japanese, he also leads his own Chinese aviation squadron against the trained Japanese air force.

Meanwhile, a Japanese spy sneaks into Chongqing posing as a refugee and tries to steal Chinese military plans, causing a great deal of damage. Two Chongqing families with a hundred-year feud resolve their differences as the enemy invades, reflecting how the Chinese have always prevailed through constant struggle and mayhem.

[COVER] Meet The Hero Of Saimdang, Song Seung Heon, In The Upcoming Drama!

Song Seung Heon, the lead actor for upcoming drama Saimdang, made an appearance at a press conference hosted by Singtel and Oh!K, where he answered several questions about his acting career as well as his role in the drama.

When asked how it was like to act alongside veteran actress Lee Young Ae in Saimdang, the humble actor said that he felt extremely honoured but nervous at the same time to be co-starring with such a skilled and experienced actress.

He also recalled a funny moment when they just started filming, sharing that they had multiple NGs because of the mistakes they made despite being veteran actors, as both of them were too tense around each other.

On his upcoming drama, Song Seung Heon explained that he felt the desire to change the stereotype about how historical characters should act, so he often consulted with the producer before the cameras start rolling.

If there’s any similarity between his character Lee Gyeom and himself, the actor revealed that if they were to choose one woman to love, they will stick with their choice and love only her for the entire lifetime.

Catch Saimdang‘s exclusive premiere on Oh!K via Singtel TV Channels 525 (Mandarin subtitles) & 611 (Malay subtitles), with the first episode slated to air on 26 January 2017, 9pm, during the same time slot as Korea’s telecast!
