Jung Ji-hoon, aka “Rain,” stars in the 2012 high-flying action-drama film Black Eagle.

In the foreign film, hotshot South Korean Air Force pilot Tae-hun (Rain) is kicked off the military’s top-notch air team and demoted into combat where his brash ways cause tension with the unit’s own ace top gun, the strait-laced Cheol-hui (Yu Jun-sang, In Another Country).  Now they must set aside their differences and lead the way to rescue a comrade and prevent war …

Originally entitled Soar into the Sun for its international theatrical release back in August, 2012, which included a small release to theaters in the U.S. Black Eagle plays like a Korean Top Gun, complete with a lot of razzle-dazzle aerial footage.

Korean superstar Rain offers a lot of the appeal here, particularly to younger audiences—back in 2010, he won the “Biggest Badass Award »
