Actor Daniel Henney to Star in 1st Korean Film in 9 Years
Actor Daniel Henney is set to make his first appearance in a Korean film in nine years with the action comedy "Confidential Assignment 2: International." The sequel to the 2017 hit "Confidential Assignment" revolves around three detectives who team up in pursuit of an international crime organization. Henney plays an FBI agent who comes all the way to Seoul to work with a North Korean special agent and a South Korean detective played by Hyun Bin and Yoo Hae-jin, respectively. Expectations are running high about the chemistry the three actors will generate. Henney first rose to stardom in Korea with his TV debut in the 2005 hit series "My Name Is Kim Sam-soon" and expanded his activities to the U.S. His last Korean film was "The Spy" directed by Lee Myung-se in 2012. Since then he has focused on working in the U.S., appearing in "Criminal Minds" and other TV series. The film's director Lee Seok-hoon said that he "created the character of the FBI agent with Henney in mind" for the sequel."Confidential Assignment 2: International" will hit local theaters in time for Chuseok next month.
