Box office sensation Confidential Assignment 2: International has announced their star-studded lineup, including the return of Hyun Bin, Yoo Hae Jin, and Girls’ Generation‘s Yoona.
Confidential Assignment was released in 2017 and was immediately a hit in Korean theaters, garnering 7.81 million viewers and bringing up rumors of a potential sequel. Five years later, the movie has been confirmed to receive a sequel, and the main cast will include returning actors Hyun Bin, Yoo Hae Jin, and Yoona alongside newcomers Daniel Henney and Jin Seon Kyu.

Daniel Henney’s role as Jack will be the FBI agent who investigates global crime. Finally, Jin Seon Kyu will play the role of Jang Myung Joon, the leader of a North Korean crime ring, and be the movie’s main villain.
