South Korean actor Song Joong Ki is visiting Pavilion Kuala Lumpur tonight at 7pm! The Battleship Island star and his co-stars Hwang Jung-min, So Ji-sub and director Ryoo Seung-wan are on our shores to promote the movie, which opens in cinemas on 17 August.

Joong Ki was in Singapore yesterday, where he spoke about his role as a soldier in the film.

"If you count the number of years I've served National Service in Korea, as well as playing the role of the soldier in The Descendants of the Sun, and now this role, I've been living the life of a soldier for five years now!" Joong Ki said.

"The hardest thing about this movie, I feel for all of us, was probably having to lose weight to play the roles of captured labourers," he added. "Because they (the characters) were very skinny because of malnutrition. So that was one of the toughest."

When asked if he would work with his fiancé Song Hye Kyo again in the future (they both starred in The Descendants of the Sun), Joong Ki said it might not happen.

"Working with Hye Kyo for future (collaborations), that's something I would have to give a little more thought to," the 31-year-old said. "Because I feel that it would be challenging. Work is work, so it may be a little tough to be on the same production."

See the stars of The Battleship Island tonight at Pavilion KL's main entrance. Watch the trailer for the movie below.
