THE SPY GONE NORTH: Check Out The International Trailer Ahead Of Its Cannes Premiere

I guess you could call it a pretty auspicious time that a film like Kundo and Nameless Gangster helmer Yoon Jong-Bin's The Spy Gone North would exist, given recent news of a truce after years of war between the North and South. Yoon's film isn't alone in this perspective either, which is good, all things considered, essentially joining in the creative frontlines for a story that invites moviegoers for an historic tale based on a true story reflective of more tumultous times.
In 1993, former military officer PARK Suk-young is recruited as a spy by South Korea's National Intelligence Service, and given the codename "Black Venus". He is then sent to infiltrate a group of high-ranking North Korean officials based in Beijing, with the ultimate goal of acquiring information on the North's nuclear program. After becoming close to RiMyong-un, a key power broker, Black Venus succeeds beyond his wildest dreams of gaining the trust of North Korea's leadership. But political machinations on both sides of the border threaten to derail his accomplishments.
The Spy Gone North will now have its day playing Out Of Competition for the Midnight Section of the Cannes Film Festival which kicks off next week, bringing Yoon back in the 12 years since debuting The Unforgiven. Also starring are Lee Sung-Min, Cho Jin-Woong and Ju Ji-Hoon.

Enjoy the trailer!
