Hyun Bin will be starring in director Woo Min Ho’s new film “Harbin” (literal title)!
On November 16, a source from the 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.”
Director Woo Min Ho has successfully captured Korea’s turbulent modern history through his hit films “Inside Men,” “The Drug King,” “The Man Standing Next,” and more. His new project “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 be showcasing both action scenes and emotional acting for the upcoming film. In addition to capturing the loneliness of someone living in a generation in which their motherland is gone, Hyun Bin 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 produced by Hive Media Corp, which has previously released “Inside Men,” “The Man Standing Next,” and “Deliver Us From Evil.” The staff will also consist of the nation’s best, including camera director Hong Kyung Po of “Deliver Us From Evil,” “Parasite,” and “Snowpiercer.” The movie is scheduled to begin filming in 2022.
