The title is based on the true story of a taxi driver (played by Song Kang-ho) who helped German reporter Jürgen Hinzpeter (Thomas Kretschmann) cover the 1980 Gwangju Democratic Uprising.

Directed by Jang Hoon who previously teamed up with Song for the hit North Korean spy drama-thriller Secret Reunion (2010), the film is eyeing a summer release and will be distributed by Showbox.

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.
