ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Actor Keanu Reeves visited South Korea on Thursday (January 8) to promote his new action film "John Wick." Reeves who stepped away from the American action film genre for a few years, was feeling great about his second visit to South Korea after seven years. "It's really great to be back. Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to stay very long so it's a kind of wonderful torture to be here with John Wick but to not be able to spend more time to visit the city," Reeves said at a news conference held in Seoul. Reeves plays John Wick, a former hitman who goes after the person who killed his beloved dog after a home invasion. Reeves said he likes the unique tone of the film. "I found like the script was fun. The film really takes you to another place, it's like one of those…I call it a popcorn movie. You know you just kind of go for this ride. And I found that the humour, the action, the production design and the great performances. So for me, I felt that the tone of the picture was something unique," said Reeves. About three hundreds fans were gathered to see Reeves on the red carpet. "John Wick" is scheduled to be released on January 21 in South Korea.
