Many films have told the story of the hitman who wants out after “one last job”, a plan that never quite seems to work out for him. But what happens when one is successfully able to leave such a life behind and actually settle down? This premise is explored in director Choi Won-sub’s new film “Hitman”.


Joon was once a legendary hitman agent for the NIS. His true passion was writing webcomics. To pursue his dream, Joon quit his work with the NIS. Now, Joon writes webcomics, but they are not very popular. He has difficulty writing new material. One night after drinking, Joon writes about his past as an NIS agent. He posts the story online, but his story contains classified material for the NIS. Joon is in a whole lot of trouble.

The film stars Kwon Sang-woo, who seems to have found a liking for action films, after also starring in the hit “The Divine Move 2: The Wrathful” earlier this year. Also featuring Jung Joon-ho (“Operation Chromite”), Hwang Woo-seol-hye (“Scandal Makers”) and Lee Yi-kyung (“Confidential Assignment“), the film is set to release in South Korea on January 22nd, 2020.
