New Thriller from YIM Soon-rye and with HWANG Jung-min and HYUN Bin Resumes Production
The upcoming Korean thriller Bargaining (translated title) from director YIM Soon-rye, featuring top stars HWANG Jung-min and HYUN Bin, is set to start production in Jordan this month.
Production was originally scheduled to kick off in the Middle East earlier this year but had to be postponed indefinitely during the escalating COVID-19 crisis, as international travel was swiftly disrupted. In the meantime, the project has been shooting its Korea-set scenes, which are almost complete. The film now has the green light from Jordanian officials to resume production this month.
Bargaining follows a National Intelligence Service (NIS) agent and a diplomat who work together to negotiate for the safe release of Korean nationals taken hostage in the Middle East.
