YoonA In Talks Along With Hyun Bin And Yoo Hae Jin For “Confidential Assignment” Sequel
On August 28, Munhwa Ilbo reported that YoonA received an offer to star as the female lead of “Confidential Assignment 2.
In response to the reports, a source from SM Entertainment confirmed, “YoonA has received the offer to star in ‘Confidential Assignment 2,’ and she is reviewing the offer.”
If she accepts the role, YoonA may be starring in the sequel with Hyun Bin and Yoo Hae Jin, who she co-starred with in “Confidential Assignment” in 2017. The two actors are also in talks to return for the sequel. Reportedly, Daniel Henney is also in talks to join the film as an American detective who used to be in the FBI.
The original 2017 film, which attracted over 7.81 million moviegoers, was directed by Kim Sung Hoon and told the story of North Korean detective Rim Chul Ryung (Hyun Bin) working with South Korean detective Kang Jin Tae (Yoo Hae Jin). YoonA originally played Kang Jin Tae’s sister-in-law. According to the reports, YoonA’s role will also be expanded upon in the sequel, making her the female lead. Although she played a supporting role in the 2017 film, YoonA caught the eyes of many viewers with her prominent acting.
After being acknowledged for her potential and acting skills through projects such as “Confidential Assignment,” YoonA starred in the hit film “E.X.I.T” last year, which surpassed 9 million moviegoers at the Korean box office. Earlier this year, YoonA also confirmed her participation in the upcoming JTBC drama “Hush” (working title).
A source from CJ ENM explained that YoonA’s character will showcase even more chemistry with North Korean detective Rim Chul Ryung (Hyun Bin) as he returns to South Korea once again for another joint confidential case in the sequel.
