Set in the early 1900s in Harbin, the capital of China’s northernmost province Heilongjiang, the movie tells the tale of Korean independence activists who risk their lives to take back their homeland. 

Apart from taking on action scenes, Hyun Bin will also flex his emotional side as he reportedly has to express feelings of anxiety and responsibility.

The movie will be directed by Woo Min-ho (Inside Men) and working together with him on the film will be cinematographer Hong Kyung-pyo, who worked on the Oscar-winning film Parasite.
