The first teaser poster has just been released for Choi Dong Hoon’s upcoming The Thieves due to hit theaters sometime this summer. The poster has that nice 70’s vibe to it, and it reminds you of the Hollywood movie posters during that era. Billed as the Korean Oceans 11, The Thieves stars Kim Yun-seok, Jeon Ji-hyeon, Kim Hye-su , Simon Yam, Angelica Lee, Kim Hae-sook, Oh Dal Soo, Lee Jeong Jae.
In order to let things cool down from their latest heist, Popeye and his group of thieves go to Macao on a job. But the mastermind behind this job is none other than Popeye’s old partner Macao Park, who escaped with 68kg of gold several years ago on their last job together.
Macao Park brought Chinese thieves as well but little did they know what Macao Park planned for each one of them. But his plan takes an unexpected turn when Popeye brings Pepsi, an old flame of Macao Park, to settle the old score. The thieves’ target is a $20 million diamond known as ‘Tear of the Sun’, kept safely away in a casino, brought there to be sold by a notorious Chinese fence. While working together to steal this fabled diamond, they all have their own agenda to keep the diamond for themselves. But who will succeed and live to see another day?
