Directed by Kim Han Min, ‘Hansan‘ (working title) is a film about the Battle of Hansan Island, a naval battle between the Japanese and Korean fleets that took place on Hansan Island in 1592. Taecyeon will be playing the role of Im Joon Young, one of the members of the Korean naval forces.

Although he has taken on acting roles across multiple genres since his debut, this will be his first role in a historical or period-era project.

Other cast members include Park Hae Il, Byun Yo Han, and Kim Sung Kyu. Filming will begin in the second half of this year.
