A special trailer was recently released. The video features behind the scenes footage of the cast shooting in exotic locations at Manila, Philippines.

Based on the trailer, Master promises to deliver pulsating car chases, spectacular shoot-outs and jaw-breaking fight scenes. The film will definitely bring in thrilling action and powerful performances from its three leads.

Veteran actor and international megastar Lee Byung-hun (Inside Men (2015), The Age of Shadows (2016), and Single Rider (2017)) plays Jin Hyun—the charismatic conman and chairman of Won Network. Kang Dong-won is the feisty cop, Kim, assigned to hunt down Jin. Kim Woo Bin takes on the role of Park-Jang-gun, the tech expert who plays the two protagonists off against each other. Master is an electrifying battle among the three men as they chase each other after over 40,000 victims are scammed out of trillions of won.

Master has been sold to 31 countries and hits Korean theaters on December 21, 2016.
