Abandoned by his mother shortly after immigrating to America, Gon (Jang Dong Gun) is raised by the mafia and grows up to become a cold-blooded hitman. Though usually flawless in taking out his targets, Gon makes a terrible mistake of killing an innocent young girl. A flood of guilt takes over his life and the situation becomes worse when his boss assigns him the job of killing the young girl’s mother. Gon’s new target, Mogyeong (Kim Min Hee), is a risk manager at an investment firm and has buried herself in work to bury her grief. She is completely unaware of her role at the heart of a dangerous conspiracy. Finally, she meets the man who wants to tell her the truth behind the death of her child.
Last year, we had an opportunity to talk to Asian American actor Brian Tee, who also appears in “No Tears for the Dead.” He talked about what its like working in the movie industry, his connections to Korean celebrities, and more.
