K-drama star Hyun Bin (“Secret Garden,” “My Name is Kim Sam Soon,” and “The Fatal Encounter”) is in the latest action packed film that was just released this past Friday at Consolidated Theatres Pearlridge. Directed by Sung Hoon Kim and produced by Je-kyoon Yoon, this covert North and South operation is filled with realistic actions scenes and witty humor. Here is the synopses provided by CJ America:
North Korean detective Cheol-ryung (HYUN Bin) lost his wife and unit when his superior Cpt. Cha (KIM Joo-hyuck) betrayed him in order to steal engraving plates that print U.S. counterfeit bills.
He joins a delegation to South Korea after learning that Cha has defected there. South Korean detective Kang (YOO Hai-jin) is assigned to the covert joint investigation in order to find Cha, but he’s only told that Cha is a simple murderer and nothing more.
The South Korean Intelligence Agency believes that there is an ulterior motive behind finding Cha and asks Kang to interfere with the investigation until they can find out what’s really going on.
