Hijack 1971 cast & the characters they play

Ha Jung-Woo as Korean Air Force pilot Tae-In, Sung Dong-Il as captain Gyu-Sik, Chae Soo-Bin as flight attendant Ok Soon, and Yeo Jin-Goo as hijacker Yong Dae are among the cast members in Hijack 1971. Though the names are different, the characters are based on actual persons.

Hotel del Luna actor Jin-Goo takes up the antagonist role in the film. In a press conference, he said, “There was a real person that Yong Dae is based on, but I mainly created the character when discussing with the director and watching the films that the director recommended.” He added, “As I focused on Yong Dae’s state of mind and his situation before the bombing (of the plane), rather than after the bombing, the expression and the look of the character naturally came.”

It’s interesting to note that this is director Kim Sung-Han’s directorial debut. Moon You-Kang, Im Se-Mi, Kim Sun-Young, Chung Ye-Jin, Moon Woo-Jin, and Kim Chul-Yoon are among the other actors in the film.
