SEOUL, April 6 (Yonhap) -- South Korean filmmaker Kim Jee-woon's new film "Secret Agent" has recently finished its five months of filming in China and South Korea, its production company and distributor said Wednesday.

Set in 1920s Korea under Japanese colonial rule, the period drama follows an armed anti-Japanese Korean independence movement group that strives to smuggle a bomb in from Shanghai to attack major Japanese facilities in Seoul.

Filming ended in Seoul on March 31, five months after it began in Shanghai on Oct. 22, Warner Bros. Korea said.

The movie stars Song Kang-ho as a Japanese police officer hunting down the group members and actor Gong Yoo as the group leader. Song Kang-ho has previously appeared in Kim's Korean-style Western "The Good, the Bad, the Weird" and director Bong Joon-ho's English-language debut film "Snowpiercer."

"Secret Agent," or "Miljeong" in Korean, is the first Korean-language film to be financed by the Hollywood film studio Warner Bros. It is expected to open in local theaters in the second half of this year.

Finecut enters Kim’s 'Age Of Shadows'

By Jean Noh | ScreenDaily

Korean sales company Finecut has picked up Kim Jee-woon’s highly-anticipated The Age Of Shadows, which marks Warner Bros Korea’s first local-language production.

The film, set against the resistance movement during the Japanese occupation era, stars Song Kang-ho (Snowpiercer) and Gong Yoo (Train To Busan).

Finecut previously handled international sales on Kim’s last Korean feature I Saw The Devil (2010), before he made his Hollywood debut with The Last Stand (2013) starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Set in the late 1920s, The Age Of Shadows follows the cat-and-mouse game that unfolds between a group of resistance fighters led by Gong’s character, trying to bring in explosives from Shanghai to destroy key Japanese facilities in Seoul, and Japanese agents trying to stop them.

Song plays a talented Korean-born Japanese police officer who was previously in the independence movement himself and is thrown into a dilemma between the demands of his reality and the instinct to support a greater cause.

Currently in post-production, The Age Of Shadows will unveil first footage and other information at the Cannes market.

Known as the stylistic auteur of a variety of genre films, Kim debuted with black comedy The Quiet Family in 1998 and has since directed films such as comedy The Foul King (2000), seminal horror thriller A Tale Of Two Sisters (2003), gangster noir A Bittersweet Life (2005) and Manchuria-set Western The Good, The Bad, The Weird (2008). The last two titles both screened in Cannes Out of Competition.
