Cha Eun-woo’s film debut in Decibel


On 28th April, news of Cha Eun-woo making his big screen debut in the thriller action film Decibel was confirmed


Thriller action film involving the Navy


Decibel is a heart-pumping action film that involves a terrorist who plants a unique sound bomb in the city centre. As a similar sound bomb incident happened in a submarine a year ago, the Navy gets involved in order to stop the terrorist attack.

The movie will showcase hyper-realistic scenes of modern-day terrorism, explosions, and a race against time to fuse the terrorist’s bomb with the help of chemical bomb and underwater warfare experts.

Cha Eun-woo will be acting as a young Navy sonar technician with sensitive ears. He’s onboard the same submarine as a Navy commander played by Kim Rae-won, as well as a Navy lieutenant played by Lee Jong-suk. 

This will be Lee Jong-suk’s first official big screen appearance after completing his mandatory military service. He will also be making a cameo in The Witch: Part 2. Kim Rae-won is similarly returning to the big screen after 2 years – his last movie was the 2019 Crazy Romance. 

Other cast members of Decibel include Jo Dal-hwan, Jung Sang-hoon, Lee Sang-hee, and Park Byung-eun.

Jung Sang-hoon will take on the role of a reporter who works closely with the military and Kim Rae-won. Park Byung-eun will act as a member of the Defense Security Support Command unravelling the motives behind various terrorist attacks. 

Jo Dal-hwan will play a happy-go-lucky senior Naval officer on the same team as Kim Rae-won, Lee Jong-suk, and Cha Eun-woo.

Lee Sang-hee will be playing the role of the senior officer of the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) squad, and she is also the wife of the Navy’s 2nd-in-command.
