“Hopeless” is a noir film about a boy named Yeon-gyu (Hong Xa-bin), who wants to escape from his hellish reality, meets the middle boss of a local gang Chi-geon (Song Joong Ki) and gets involved in the world of crime.

The new press still cuts this time fans’ attention as they herald a noir movie with the darkest sensibility this fall. Hong Xa-bin impresses viewers with his portrayal of Yeon-gyu, who has complex inner thoughts, through shaky eyes and a rough appearance in survival.

Song Joong-ki’s still image raises fans’ expectations for a completely new acting transformation, from an outlook that he has never shown before and a cool face that is hard to guess what he is thinking inside. In particular, Song Joong-ki reportedly went through intense training throughout the filming period to build a solid physique that could show the life of someone who struggles to survive and added wound and injury makeup all over his body to become the character himself. 

Kim Hyung-seo (BIBI) also expresses the firm eyes of the blunt girl Ha-yan, who is not easily shaken by the harsh reality and tries to protect Yeon-gyu.


There is also a picture showing the three characters with different expressions. While Yeon-gyu looks anxious, Chi-geon tries to lead Yeon-gyu to his world, and Ha-yan steps forward to protect Yeon-gyu. The fierce atmosphere between the three stimulates viewers’ curiosity about the story they will tell. 

In addition, “Hopeless” production team also revealed images of other characters, such as Seung-mu (Jung Jae-kwang), who is in the same gang as Chi-geon and keeps an eye on Yeon-gyu, as well as Jung-beom (Kim Jong-su), the ruthless boss of the gang, with overwhelming aura, signaling a breathtaking survival.
