A new film by Ryoo Seung-wan is always something to look forward to. He has brought us solid films like No Blood No Tears, Arahan, Crying Fist, The City of Violence, Dachimawa Lee, and The Unjust. Once more teaming up with his younger brother Ryoo Seung-Bum, Ryoo Seung-wan brings us a spy thriller called The Berlin File. Due to hit theaters in 2013 the first teaser has been released. The Berlin File also stars Ha Jung-woo, Jeon Ji-hyun and Han Suk-kyu, and John Keogh.
Synopsis: Stationed in Berlin, North Korean secret agent and weapons trader Pyo and his embassy staffer wife Ryon lead risky lives. When an arms deal with an Arab organization is exposed, Pyo’s intuition tells him that North Korean security is compromised and he becomes the target of investigation by South Korean intelligence agent Chun. Also in the city is Myung-soo. Myung-soo neutralizes North Korean officials in Berlin, and during the succession period after the death of North Korean leader Kim Jung-il he is granted more power and control. When an informant tells Pyo that Ryon is a double agent he sets out to disprove the claim. But witnessing her visit the American Embassy is evidence that he cannot ignore. It brings about a personal crisis that ends with Ryon as Myung-soo’s hostage, and a three-way confrontation with Chun and a group of Arab terrorist on the outskirts of Berlin.
