Action film “The Point Men” is gearing up for its North American premiere!
“The Point Men” depicts the story of the people who go to Afghanistan to rescue Korean missionaries who are held hostage by the Taliban. In this film, the Korean government dispatches the skilled diplomat Jeong Jae Ho (Hwang Jung Min) in order to handle the situation. Once he arrives, he asks for the Afghan government’s cooperation and uses every means possible to free the hostages. However, his efforts go in vain, and he is forced to work with the National Intelligence Service agent Dae Sik (Hyun Bin), who is an expert on the Middle East. The two become unlikely allies in a race against time to save the hostages.
The film is led by Director Yim Soon Rye, who has previously created movies including “The Whistleblower” and “Little Forest.” She shared about her new film, “It’s a story of the desperate situation of people saving people,” and explained how it focuses on the stories of people who run to rescue people rather than the dichotomy between good and evil.
“The Point Men” recently made its Korean premiere on January 17 and will additionally be hitting theaters in the United States and Canada on January 27 (local time).
Watch a trailer below, and also stay tuned for the film’s upcoming release on Dramacool.
