Crash Landing On You has just ended but its lead actor Hyun Bin is already gearing up for a big-screen comeback.
VAST Entertainment, Hyun Bin’s agency, officially confirmed on February 21 that the actor signed on to play the lead role in the upcoming action thriller film Negotiation. The movie will tell the story of a Korean diplomat and a National Intelligence Service agent who set out on a dangerous mission to rescue a group of South Korean kidnap victims in the Middle East.
Hyun Bin, who was last in the 2018 film Rampant, will be playing the NIS agent while veteran actor Hwang Jung-min will portray the diplomat. Hwang is known for his work in movies like The Spy Gone North (2018), Asura: The City of Madness (2016), and The Wailing (2016).
Negotiation will be helmed by Im Soon-rye, who directed the 2018 film Little Forest starring Kim Tae-ri and Ryu Jun-yeol. It will begin shooting soon in Jordan.
Meanwhile, Crash Landing on You recently ended its broadcast on a high note after it achieved a peak rating of 21.7 percent, becoming the second Korean cable drama in history to exceed the 20% mark. Hyun Bin starred in the series opposite Son Ye-jin.
So Hyun Bin is playing a soldier/detective/agent again. And it’s totally fine. No matter how many times he plays such roles, it won’t get old, because nothing is hotter than Hyun Bin in uniform, dealing with weapons and landing some great kicks on the bad guys.
