Hugh Jackman recently admitted he took a huge risk taking the lead role of Jean Valjean in the film, but he was pleased with the outcome.

Valjean is a former prisoner turned pillar of society in 19th century Paris, who seeks redemption, while his Nemesis Inspector Javert (Russell Crowe) hunts him down.

The role involved taking a huge singing role for Jackman - who has previous musical form on stage as 'The Boy From Oz', and in front of a worldwide audience when he hosted the Oscars in 2009.

The juggernaut that is the release of highly-anticipated blockbuster 'Les Misérables' swung into life last week, making its first stop in South Korea.
