Lee Jung-Jae

The Korean box office smash HUNT is directed by and stars the soon-to-be-a-household-name South Korean superstar Lee Jung-jae – winner of an Emmy Award for his role in the phenomenon Squid Game, and starring in next year’s Star Wars series The Acolyte.

The film will receive its UK premiere at the London East Asia Film Festival (LEAFF), on 19 October at the Odeon Luxe, Leicester Square. Lee will be in attendance for a Q&A and to introduce the Opening Gala screening.

Trailer For Hunt

Set during the political turmoil of South Korea in the 1980s, Lee plays an intelligence chief tasked, along with Jung Woo-sung (The Good The Bad The Weird), with rooting out ‘Donglim’, a mole whose leaks are threatening the country’s national security.

Recalling Cantonese classic Infernal Affairs (and its remake The Departed), the incredible stunt choreography of The Raid, and political thrillers No Way Out and In The Line Of Fire, with some big scale shoot-outs (including a nail biting gun battle on the streets of Tokyo) that wouldn’t look out of place in Heat, HUNT is a slick, smart debut, with all the intrigue, espionage, suspense and frenetic action you can handle.

Fans of recent outstanding Korean cinema hits Train to Busan and Parasite should be sure to track down Lee Jung-jae in HUNT this November, for another film that engages the mind and will thrill you to the core.

Synopsis Of Hunt

After a group of operatives on a top secret government mission are gunned down, Korean Foreign Intelligence Unit chief Park Pyong-ho (Lee Jung-jae) and Domestic Unit chief Kim Jung-do (Jung Woo-sung) must uncover a North Korean spy, known as Donglim, who is deeply embedded within their agency and thought to be responsible for the leak.

Not knowing who to trust, paranoia and suspicion spreads throughout the department, as the two conflicting units race against the clock to find the elusive mole, and slowly start to uncover the truth – an unthinkable plot to assassinate the South Korean president.
