Top Korean actors Gang Dong-won and Ko Soo have become the main cast of a new action thriller tentatively titled "Psychic," according to movie producers Zip Cinema on Monday.

Gang will play the role of a mind-controlling psychic who tries to lead an ordinary life until he meets Kyu-nam, played by Ko, who is not affected by his supernatural powers.

The movie will be helmed by director Kim Min-seok who has won the award for his film “Memories of Oldboy” at the 2004 Mise-en-scene's short film festival under the action category. He was also the assistant to famed directors Bong Joon-ho and Kim Ji-woon.

Filming is set to begin in mid-May with release scheduled for the latter half of the year.

Gang made his debut in the entertainment industry in 2003 appearing in several dramas but rose to fame after his role in the hit movie "Romance of their Own." He has starred in other movies such as "Duelist," "M," "WOOCHI" and most recently in the action movie "Secret Reunion."
Ko appeared in the music video “Letter” by singer Position in 1998 and has since added numerous dramas and films to his resume. His most memorable appearances include dramas "Piano" and "Will it Snow for Christmas?" and movies "Some" and "White Night."
