“Confidential Assignment” sequel gives a glimpse of the actors’ teamwork from first script reading

Directed by Kim Sung Hoon, the 2017 film “Confidential Assignment” was about a North Korean detective named Rim Chul Ryung (Hyun Bin) and a South Korean detective named Kang Jin Tae (Yoo Hae Jin) teaming up to catch a criminal. Girls’ Generation’s YoonA also appeared in the 2017 film as the sister-in-law of Kang Jin Tae.

The sequel is tentatively titled “Confidential Assignment 2: International” and will be directed by Lee Seok Hoon, who has directed films like “The Pirates” and “The Himalayas.” It follows Rim Chul Ryung heading back to South Korea in pursuit of a brutal and secret criminal organization. He teams up again with Kang Jin Tae, who volunteers to work with the North Korean in order to get back on the investigation team after a mistake landed him in the cybercrime department.

Daniel Henney and Jin Sun Kyu will be appearing in the film franchise for the first time. Daniel Henney plays Jack, an FBI detective from the United States, who is on the trail of a North Korean criminal organization that has caused havoc all over the world. Jin Sun Kyu plays Jang Myung Joon, the leader of this criminal organization.

On February 13, CJ ENM took to Instagram to share stills of Hyun Bin, Yoo Jae Jin, YoonA, and Jin Sun Kyu at the script reading. The caption reads, “The ‘Confidential Assignment’ everyone has been waiting for has started again!”
