Lee Dong Wook Joins Hyun Bin And Jeon Yeo Been's Historical Movie + Filming To Begin This Week

Lee Dong Wook is set to join Hyun Bin and Jeon Yeo Been in an upcoming spy action film!

On November 17, a representative from Lee Dong Wook’s agency revealed, “It’s true that Lee Dong Wook is appearing in the movie ‘Harbin’ [literal title]. It’s difficult to give details with regards to his character.”

“Harbin” is a spy action film taking place during the early 1900s in Harbin, the capital of China’s northernmost province Heilongjiang. Focusing on real-life independence activist Ahn Jung Geun, the film tells the story of various Korean independence activists who put their lives on the line in order to take back their homeland.

Starring alongside Lee Dong Wook are Hyun Bin, Jeon Yeo Been, Park Jung Min, Jo Woo Jin, Yoo Jae Myung, Park Hoon, and more, with a special appearance by Jung Woo Sung.

Hyun Bin will star as Ahn Jung Geun, a Lieutenant General of the Korean Army. Park Jung Min will play independence fighter Woo Deok Soon, who prioritizes his country over his own name. Jo Woo Jin’s character Kim Sang Hyun will work alongside Ahn Jung Geun to rediscover their lost nation.

Jeon Yeo Been plays Madame Gong, a fellow member of the Independence Army, while Yoo Jae Myung will portray Ahn Jung Geun’s assistant Choi Jae Hyung. Park Hoon will star as Mori Datsuo of the Japanese Empire.

On November 14, the “Harbin” team visited the Ahn Jung Geun Memorial Museum where director Woo Min Ho commented, “My method and mindset [for this film], as well as the story I want to tell, are all different from my previous works, so I’m nervous and excited. I wish for the safety of all our staff and safe filming.” Hyun Bin added, “After deciding to appear in this project, I came to the Ahn Jung Geun Memorial Museum by myself once and at the time, there was a deep heaviness and nervousness in my heart. I will do my best along with our incredible actors and staff.”

Park Jung Min shared, “There’s a lot of pressure when acting in a project that deals with heroes in Korean history. I will work hard so that I am not shameful.” Jo Woo Jin chimed in, “I think that it’ll be fine as long as I do well. I will work to complete filming well and safely.” Jeon Yeo Been commented, “I cannot fathom risking your life for and dedicating your lifetime to your country. I will work hard to understand what kind of feeling that deep desire is.”

Lee Dong Wook is currently filming for the upcoming second season of “Tale of the Nine-Tailed.” “Harbin” will officially start filming on November 20 and Lee Dong Wook will join the set as soon as his drama filming concludes.
