As Hopeless gears up for its premiere at the 76th Cannes Film Festival, the first batch of its still images has sparked considerable interest.

Directed by Kim Chang Hoon, the noir film Hopeless follows the story of a young boy named Yeon Gyu (Hong Xa Bin) who, desperate to escape his hellish reality, finds himself entangled in a dangerous world after meeting Chi Geon (Song Joong Ki), a mid-level boss in a crime syndicate.

Hopeless will make its global debut on May 24th at 11 AM (local time), with an official screening at the Debussy Theatre, followed by a red carpet event at 9:30 PM late the same day, and an official photocall scheduled for 11 AM on the 25th.

Director Kim Chang Hoon, Hong X Bin, Song Joong Ki, and Bibi, who are gathering attention for their first Cannes appearance, will add glamor to the event by attending the official screening, red carpet event, and photocall, meeting with film fans from around the world for the first time.

In the meantime, the newly released stills from Hopeless deliver a powerful impression, capturing the precarious situations of Yeon Gyu, Chi Geon, and Ha Yan.

The stills, featuring an 18-year-old Yeon Gyu recklessly riding a motorcycle and devoid of any support, amplify the anticipation for Hong Xa Bin’s nuanced performance. Additionally, the stills showcasing the rugged persona of the gang’s mid-boss Chi Geon give a glimpse of Song Joong Ki’s unprecedented acting transformation, stirring interest.

The images of Yeon Gyu and Chi Geon standing unflinchingly face-to-face radiate a palpable tension, piquing curiosity about the story that unfolds when these two characters meet.

Lastly, the still capturing the resilience of Ha Yan, who doesn’t back down even in grim realities, raises expectations for the mature performance delivered by Bibi.
