Hyun Bin Confirmed To Star In New Spy Action Film

Nov 16, 2021 by S. Nam

 

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.

Possible plot.

 

On October 26, 1909, Ahn Jung-geun, a Korean independence activist, shot Hirobumi Ito, Japan's four-time prime minister and former resident-general of Korea, at Harbin railway station. Ahn was arrested on the spot while Ito, in Harbin for a scheduled meeting with a Russian representative in Manchuria, died shortly afterwards.

 

The man dubbed a national hero by Koreans was sentenced to death by the Japanese colonial court and hanged the following year.

 

Spoiler

Born in Korea in 1879, Ahn had just an 11-day connection with Harbin.

In 1905, the Japan-Korea Treaty was agreed following the Russo-Japanese War. It made Korea a protectorate of Japan. Ito was appointed as the governor of Korea after the treaty was signed.

Ahn started a coal business at the age of 25 before providing education in Korea to enlighten his countrymen. He later joined the "righteous armies" to fight against the Japanese, which ended in defeat.

On October 20, 1909, Ahn learned from reports that Ito was going to Harbin and he came up with a plan for killing the senior politician.

He arrived in the Chinese city on October 22 and contacted some associates. Four days later, he avoided the Japanese guards at the train station and shot Ito three times as well as Ito's three Japanese companions.

Ahn was arrested by Russian police and soon handed over to the custody of Japanese army. Ahn then was transferred to another prison in Lüshun, Liaoning Province on November 1. He was jailed there until being hanged in March 1910.

But a 2020 movie "Hero" has already been made about Ahn.

 

"An Jung-Geun (Jung Sung-Hwa) is a fighter for the Korean independence movement. Seol-Hee (Kim Go-Eun) used to be a court lady for Queen Myeongseong, but, after Queen Myseongseong was assassinated by the Japanese, Seol-Hee takes part in Korean independence activity. She becomes a geisha and gains the favor Hirobumi Ito, who is the Japanese Resident-General of Korea. He travels to Manchuria and Seol-Hee accompanies him. Korean independence fighter An Jung-Geun learns of Hirobumi Ito's travel plans from Seoul-Hee. An Jung-Geun decides to assassinate Hirobumi Ito for the Korean independence movement." [Source: asianwiki]


"This is a film adaptation of the musical 'Hero' that deals with the life of Ahn Jung-geun." [Source: hancinema]

Perhaps the focus of Hyun Bin's movie is on another part of this life?

 

But, Ahn dies after the assassination 😭

104 Years Later, a Chinese Train Station Platform is Still the Site of Anti-Japanese Rancor

BY EMILY RAUHALA / HARBIN

JANUARY 30, 2014 5:00 AM EST

 

It is the morning of Oct. 26, 1909. Japan is tightening its grip on the Korean peninsula, and the Japanese governor of Korea, Hirobumi Ito, is due to arrive, by train, at the railway station in Harbin. Hiding on the platform is a Korean veteran of the anti-Japanese struggle, Ahn Jung-geun. He tucks himself into a line of soldiers, stashing his pistol in a lunch box. When Ito emerges, Ahn steps forward and shoots him dead. For this, Ahn is later executed by the Japanese.

 

This sanguineous story is the subject of a new museum in the city of Harbin, in northeast China. A joint South Korean-Chinese effort, the Ahn Jung-geun Memorial Hall stands in the V.I.P section of the city’s train station, not far from where Ito died. Since its opening on Jan. 19, the project has been given fulsome praise from South Korea and China — and has been roundly denounced by the Japanese.

 

Spoiler

East Asia is at war over history. Amid ongoing territorial disputes and rising nationalist sentiment, Japan’s imperial expansion and wartime record have become a focal point for the region. In late December, Japan’s hawkish prime minister, Shinzo Abe, rankled neighbors by visiting Yasukuni shrine, the resting place of 2.5 million war dead, including convicted war criminals. It was the first Prime Ministerial visit to the site since 2006.

 

Predictably, the move was unpopular. A spokesman for the Chinese foreign ministry called the visit an attempt to “whitewash” a history of “aggression and colonial rule by militarist Japan.” The U.S. expressed “disappointment,” urging Japan to find “constructive” ways to deal with sensitive issues. South Korea’s President Park Geun-hye blasted Abe for “by digging up the wounds of the past.”

 

The memorial hall has brought a fresh set of controversies. To Japan, Ahn is a criminal. Hirobumi Ito is a proud figure in Japanese history, an architect of the reformist Meiji constitution who served several times as Prime Minister. “We recognise Ahn Jung-Geun as a terrorist who was sentenced to death for killing our country’s first prime minister,” said Yoshihide Suga, a government spokesman.

 

Of course, this is exactly why he is revered in South Korea, which has an Ahn Memorial Hall of its own. The China project was first suggested by South Korean President Park Geun-hye at a meeting with President Xi Jinping last summer. Park’s father, former strongman Park Chung-hee served as a lieutenant in the Japanese army and studied in Japan. When he came to power in a 1961 coup, he normalized diplomatic relations with Tokyo, which provoked demonstrations. His critics considered him too close to the Japanese.

 

Honoring Ahn is an easy way for Park to bolster her nationalist credentials. Though Japan and South Korea are tied by trade, tourism, and an alliance with the United States, they remain very much at odds over history, particularly the fact that South Korean women were forced to work as sex slaves in Japanese military brothels. Many South Koreans don’t think Japan has adequately apologized.

 

It also gave Park a chance to engage with Beijing. China is a long-time ally of North Korea, but has warmed to the South under President Park. And it is not hard to muster anti-Japanese sentiment in China, particularly in Harbin. During the Japanese occupation of Manchuria, Unit 731 of the Japanese Imperial Army set up a base in Harbin to conduct germ-warfare experiments and medical testing. The site is now a museum where the Unit’s brutality is brought to life by videos, dioramas and modeling clay.

 

This helps explain why China is so keen to honor Ahn. “Ahn Jung-geun is, in history, an upholder of justice who fought against Japan’s aggression,” said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Qin Gang at a press conference. He dismissed Japan’s protest that the hall honored a terrorist. “If Ahn Jung-geun were a terrorist, what about the 14 Class-A war criminals of WWII honored in the Yasukuni Shrine?”

 

The rhetoric has a cooled a bit for now. A week after the grand opening, the hall saw a small but steady stream of visitors, though the number of foreign journalists easily matched the number of people simply stopping by to take a look. The small, two room space boasts a commemorative bust, some photographs, and samples of Ahn’s calligraphy. A plaque marks the spot where Ito fell.

 

Outside, on the hall’s rebuilt facade, the clock is stuck at 9:30 a.m., the moment Ito was killed.

[Y Issue] Hyun Bin, shall we meet the trendiest juniors... Park Jung-min, Jeon Yeo-bin "Positive review of 'Harbin'" (official)

Actors Park Jung-min and Jeon Yeo-bin have been considered for the highly anticipated 'Harbin' as Hyun Bin's next work.

On the 12th, Park Jung-min's agency Sam Company and Jeon Yeo-bin's agency MMM Entertainment told YTN Star, "We are positively reviewing the movie 'Harbin'."

'Harbin' is the next film directed by Woo Min-ho, who successfully captured the turbulent modern history of Korea on the screen through 'The Insiders', 'The Drug King' and 'The Managers of Namsan'. Set in Harbin in the early 1900s, it is a masterpiece of spy action that tells the story of independence fighters who risked their lives to reclaim their homeland.

Recently, Park Jung-min met global viewers with the Netflix original series 'Hell'. He also appeared in director Park Chan-wook's short film 'The Day of the Night' with Yoo Hae-jin and Kim Ok-bin.
