[NEWS] Tazza 2 "Hand of God" to hits theaters in September (140812)

| Tuesday, August 12

The long wait for TOP (Choi Seung-hyun) fans is nearly over. Tazza 2: Hand of God (let’s be real, they could have called it Tazza 2: Hand of TOP) is being released next month, and we’ll get to see how well the sequel does in comparison to the first movie, Tazza: The High Rollers, which sold over 6 million tickets in 2006.

Both works are based on the card-gambling manhwa illustrated by Heo Young-man and written by Kim Se-young, which also spawned an eponymous drama series starring Jang Hyuk in 2008. The original comic had four parts, so if the latest installment does well, we could be in for a third movie (although we might have to wait a while to see it; we’ve had to wait eight years for this one).

In Tazza 2: Hand of God, TOP plays Dae-gil, the nephew of cardshark and swindler Go-ni (Jo Seung-woo in the first movie). Like his uncle, Dae-gil has been competitive and good at sleight-of-hand from a very young age. He plunges fearlessly into the gambling underworld, and begins the high-stakes battle of his life.

The trailer doesn’t reveal much, but we’re given small glimpses of a slick con movie, with some of the original cast making repeat appearances (Yoo Hae-jin, Kim Yoon-seok), some new to the franchise faces (Oh Jung-se — love him — of A New Leaf, Kwak Do-won of Suspicious Housekeeper), and Shin Se-Kyung (When A Man Loves) and Honey Lee (Shark) upping the pretty factor.

Tazza 2: Hand of God is directed by Kang Hyung-chul (Speedy Scandal, Sunny) and will be released in theaters at Chuseok Day (In September).

  • T.O.P meets up with the cast & crew of Tazza 2 for the first time!

    *NOTE: "Tazza: The High Rollers 2" is based on "The Hand of God," a four-part manga written by Heo Young Man. The story that the original film was based on focused on gambling drifters who play the Korean card game Hwatu or War of the Flowers. The film’s main character Kim Goni has been cheated out of his life’s savings by professional gamblers and learns how to gamble to take revenge. It was one of Korea’s highest grossing films. In “Tazza: The High Rollers 2,” T.O.P. would play Ham Dae Gil, Kim Goni’s nephew, who comes to Seoul and also gets involved with gamblers.
