There's no stopping "Good Boy" Kim Seon-ho from making his on-screen comeback. The South Korean actor is now set to star in a new neo-noir action film with acclaimed actors Che Seung Won and Kim Kang Woo.

Titled "Tyrant," the film chronicles the mission of three agents who, according to The Korea Times, will try to retrieve the last sample of a secret government project called "tyrant."

Kim Seon-ho will play the role of Director Choi, a government agent who has been unofficially running the tyrant program. This is the second time the actor will be working with director Park Hun Joong after the 2023 action thriller The Child

"It’s an honor to be able to greet the audience through the role of Director Choi who has a different charm from characters I have showcased in the past. I’m happy to work once again with director Park Hoon Jung following The Child," Kim Seon-ho said in a statement

Cha Seung Won, meanwhile, will play alongside Kim Seon-ho as former intelligence agent Im Sang who will try to interfere with the mission by destroying the sample and terminating the forces behind it. They will be joined by Kim Kang Woo as Paul, a foreign intelligence agent who will likewise destroy the much-coveted sample of the tyrant program.

Shooting of Tyrant began on Jan. 2 this year, with its premiere date still kept under wraps.

The news of Kim Seon-ho's involvement in the film comes after his agency, Salt Entertainment, confirmed in October of last year that the actor is in talks  with JTBC to star in the upcoming historical romance drama tentatively titled "Hash’s Shinru." 

Based on the web novel by Yoon Yi Soo, Hash's Shinru is set in the Joseon Renaissance and follows the story of Lee Hyang, a crown prince and scientist who loves watching the stars at night, and Haeru, a mysterious woman who can predict the future.

Apart from these two projects, Kim Seon-ho is set to star in the upcoming film Sad Tropics. Directed by Park Hoon Jung, the film revolves around a Filipino-Korean spring boxer who flies to South Korea in hopes of finding his father. 

It will be Kim Seon-ho's official film debut after being embroiled in a controversy with his ex-girlfriend in October 2021.
