Most Anticipated Korean Films of 2016

3. Secret Agent
Dir: Kim Jee-woon (A Bittersweet Life, 2005)
Cast: Song Kang-ho (The Host, 2006), Gong Yoo (The Suspect, 2013), Han Ji-min (The Fatal Encounter, 2014)
Distribution: Warner Brothers
Filming Dates: 2015-10-22 ~ 
Status: Filming
Genre: Period Action

Plot: A Korean independence organization uses violent means to achieve its goals during the Japanese Colonial Era.

What to expect: Another major director returning to home soil, this time following I Saw the Devil (2010), Kim Jee-woon is currently shooting a stylish Colonial Era action thriller with frequent collaborator Song Kang-ho in both China and Korea. After the creative and commercial setback of The Last Stand (2013) hopefully this will see the genre smith firing on all cylinders again.

When can we see it? Not confirmed but will most likely debut in Korea around July or August.
