He is so vicious that killing a single person is not a task, and he overpowers his opponents with just his eyes. Actor Kim Moo-yeol showed perfect balance from his acting to action and blended into the ‘The Roundup’ series with his own unique colors.

‘The Roundup 4’ is about the monster detective Ma Seok-do (played by Ma Dong-seok) who returns to face the villain Baek Chang-gi (played by Kim Moo-yeol), a former special forces mercenary who runs a large-scale online illegal gambling organization, and the IT industry genius CEO Jang Dong-cheol (played by Lee Dong-hwi). (played by Park Ji-hwan), a film depicting a crime eradication operation carried out together with the Kwangsoo Unit and the Cyber ​​Team.

The ‘The Roundup’ series has been garnering attention by creating attractive villain characters in each series. ‘The Roundup’ is a work that can only be completed if Ma Dong-seok leads it and the villain pushes it well. Kim Moo-yeol was chosen to play the main villain Baek Chang-gi in ‘The Roundup 4’.

Baek Chang-gi is a former mercenary villain who was expelled for a brutal act of murder. His fighting power is optimized for killing, and he is even equipped with the ferocity to eliminate anything that stands in the way of his basic interests. Empty eyes that don’t know what’s inside, and cruelty that doesn’t even blink an eye at murder. Like Jang Dong-cheol’s line, “A man without fear cells,” it is no exaggeration to say that Baek Chang-gi is the strongest villain character in the ‘The Roundup’ series so far.

Baek Chang-gi, played by Kim Moo-yeol, speaks little and does not change much in expression. Because he does not show his emotions as much as possible, he is even more inhuman and fearful. Kim Moo-yeol also explained the difference from the villains in his previous films as “a villain who can overcome crises most rationally and is optimized for survival.”

The ‘The Roundup’ series is a work that runs straight towards the conclusion of ‘punishment for evil’ with Maseok-do taking center stage, so the more vicious the villain, the more refreshing the final ‘big punch’ will feel. In that sense, Kim Moo-yeol plays the role of a villain in the ‘The Roundup’ series to a great extent.

(Kim Mu Yeol)

Kim Moo-yeol is an actor with a face where good and evil coexist. In ‘The Roundup 4’, he transforms into a perfect villain and maintains the tension of the play by showing off his youthful and mysterious eyes. Unlike Jang Chen (played by Yoon Kye-sang) in Part 1 or Kang Hae-sang (played by Son Seok-gu) in Part 2, as he does not have many lines or facial expressions, he may seem like a colorless character who is not particularly noticeable, but he leaves a surprisingly strong impression.

Ma Dong-seok said, “I thought there were only a few actors who could handle difficult action scenes but also had acting skills, and among them, I thought (Kim) Mu-yeol would be a good fit.” After watching ‘The Roundup 4’, you will fully understand Ma Dong-seok’s choice. In addition to Kim Moo-yeol’s character setting and passionate acting, Ma Dong-seok’s highly praised action skills create an amazing synergy effect. Kim Moo-yeol gained more than 10 kg in weight for ‘The Roundup 4’, and his physical appearance alone is intimidating. He shows agile and sharp actions in contrast to the heavy and powerful Maseokdo, and in rare cases, he is shown struggling.
