Lee Dong Wook will be joining the cast of the new spy action movie "Harbin." The "Goblin" star will work alongside Hyun Bin and Jeon Yeo Been in the film.
Lee Dong Wook's agency, King Kong by Starship, confirmed its talent part in the movie. However, it's yet to share the role he's about to play.
"It's true that Lee Dong Wook is appearing in the movie 'Harbin' [literal title]," the agency's statement reads, per Soompi. However, it explained that it found it difficult to talk about his role.
The film in question is a spy action movie that will take place during the 1990s in Harbin, the capital of China's northernmost province Heilongjiang. It will feature the life of the independence activist Ahn Jung Geun, played by Hyun Bin, who's also the Lieutenant General of the Korean Army, and his fellow militants who bravely put their lives on the line to have their homeland back.
Aside from Lee Dong Wook, Hyun Bin, and Jeon Yeo Bee, "Harbin" will also feature Park Jung Min, Jo Woo Jin, Yoo Jae Myung, Park Hoon, and more. There will also be a special appearance by Jung Woo Sung.
Park Jung Min will be seen as the independence fighter Woo Deok Soon, who prioritizes his country more than his name. Jo Woo Jin will then play Kim Sang Hyun, who will work with Ahn Jung Geun to save their lost nation.
In addition, Jeon Yeo Been will portray the role of Madame Gong, a fellow Independence Army member. Yoo Jae Myung will also be seen as Ahn Jung Geun's assistant Choi Jae Hyung, and Park Hoon as the Japanese Empire Mori Datsuo.
However, it remains to be seen what role Lee Dong Wook will play. He will reportedly join "Harbin" filming as soon he completes the production of his upcoming K-drama, "Tale of the Nine Tailed 1938." The movie will officially start filming on November 20.
Meanwhile, the film's team reportedly visited Ahn Jung Geun Memorial Museum on Monday, November 14. Director Woo Min Ho revealed his method and mindset for the movie, and the story he wanted to tell would be different from his previous works; thus, he's both nervous and excited.
Hyun Bin, alternatively, explained that he decided to visit the museum after accepting the movie. He quickly felt nervous and had a deep heavy feeling in his heart, promising he would do his best for the film, along with the other actors and "Harbin" staff and crew.
