“Mr. Go,” based on the work of famous cartoonist Hur Young-man, tells the story of a gorilla with a special skillset who joins a professional baseball team in Korea and becomes a superstar.
Ryu, Choo and real-life players from the Doosan Bears in Korea’s professional league appear as teammates who are amazed by the talented primate’s batting skills.
“Ryu and Choo’s acting abilities are on par with their excellent baseball skills, and they both seemed excited about their first appearance on the silver screen,” said Showbox, the film’s distributor.
