CJ Entertainment released a trailer this week for a new Korean spy movie that looks pretty great. A late Cold War period piece set in the days of Kim Jong-il, The Spy Gone North follows a South Korean agent sent as a dangle to infiltrate a cadre of North Korean leadership based in Beijing, who ultimately gains the trust of the Supreme Leader himself. His delicate position ultimately becomes threatened by the ruling class on both sides of the Demilitarized Zone. According to the trailer, the story is inspired by true events, but it also looks at least a little bit inspired by The Spy Who Came in from the Cold. (And maybe just a tad by The Chairman...?) Jong-bin Yoon (Nameless Gangster: Rules of the Time) directs and Jung-min Hwang (The Wailing) stars. The Spy Gone North opens in select theaters in the U.S. August 17.
