Kong Hyo-jin, who recently starred in the thriller Missing, plays Lee’s wife, an ex-violinist who lives in Australia with their son. Ahn So-hee, who appeared in a supporting role in the breakout hit Train to Busan, features as a student who goes to Australia on a working holiday.

Synopsis

Jae-hoon (played by Lee Byung-hun) is at the brink of losing everything when his company goes bankrupt. Overwhelmed by despair, he takes an impulsive trip to Australia where his wife Soo-jin (Kong Hyo-jin) and his son Jin-woo live for his son’s education. Upon arrival, Jae-hoon finds his wife and son living ever so happily in his absence, and becomes suspicious of affectionate relationship between his wife and her Australian neighbor Kris. Startled by the situation, Jae-hoon decides to watch them from a distance instead of approaching them and eventually witnesses the evidence of Soo-jin’s affair. As his trip nears its unexpected end, Jae-hoon gets a chance to look back on his life and finally confront a shocking truth that shatters what he has stood for.

My name is Panos Kotzathanasis and I am Greek. Being a fan of Asian cinema and especially of Chinese kung fu and Japanese samurai movies since I was a little kid, I cultivated that love during my adolescence, to extend to the whole of SE Asia. Starting from my own blog in Greek, I then moved on to write for some of the major publications in Greece, and in a number of websites dealing with (Asian) cinema, such as Taste of Cinema, Hancinema, EasternKicks, Chinese Policy Institute, and of course, Asian Movie Pulse. in which I still continue to contribute. In the beginning of 2017, I launched my own website, Asian Film Vault, which I merged in 2018 with Asian Movie Pulse, creating the most complete website about the Asian movie industry, as it deals with almost every country from East and South Asia, and definitely all genres.
