Sun-woo, a former SEAL member and molecular physics major, joins the Narae-ho space program in Korea to fulfill his father’s dream. However, a sudden and unforeseen accident occurs during the expedition, leaving him as the mission’s sole survivor. “The Moon” promises to be a gripping and epic action-adventure that will captivate audiences with its intriguing storyline and Doh Kyung-soo’s compelling performance.
Doh Kyung-soo was drawn to “The Moon” due to its exceptional script and the opportunity it presented for him to challenge himself as an actor. Expressing weightlessness with his body was a unique aspect of the role that intrigued him.

In “The Moon,” the first manned mission to the moon from Korea faces a tragic disaster when an explosion occurs on board. After seven years, a second human spaceflight is launched successfully, but a solar wind causes it to malfunction, leaving astronaut Sun-woo (played by Doh Kyung-soo) stranded in space. With another life-threatening crisis, the Naro Space Center seeks the help of its former managing director, Dr. Kim (portrayed by award-winning actor Sul Kyung-gu), to bring Sun-woo back home safely. The film also features Kim Hee-ae, known for her recent roles in “The World of the Married” and “Queenmaker,” adding further star power to this gripping and thrilling space adventure.
