Hyun Bin will be officially cast in director Woo Min Ho’s new film “Harbin” as the main lead.
On 16th November production company Hive Media Corp revealed, “Hyun Bin has decided to star in ‘Harbin’ due to the quality and interesting nature of the script as well as the trust he has in director Woo Min Ho.”
“Harbin” is a spy action film taking place during the early 1900s in Harbin, the capital of China’s northernmost province Heilongjiang. It tells the story of Korean independence activists who put their lives on the line in order to take back their homeland.
Hyun Bin will play both action scenes and emotional acting and will also express the complicated feelings of anxiety and responsibility from putting one’s life on the line at the center of the independence fight.
“Harbin” will be directed by Hive Media Corp, which has previously released “Inside Men,” “The Man Standing Next,” and “Deliver Us From Evil.” The production team will also include camera director Hong Kyung Po of “Deliver Us From Evil,” “Parasite,” and “Snowpiercer.” The movie is scheduled to begin filming in 2022.
