Dir. Lee Jeong-beom. 2010, 119 mins. With Won Bin, Kim Sae-ron, Kim Tae-hoon. One part Batman, one part Bourne, Korean mega-star Won Bin revamps his image as a hard man of action with The Man from Nowhere. The story of a spy coming out of retirement to take on a ring of organ harvesters, Won Bin’s rousing performance and the film’s artful and inventive take on the spy film garnered sixteen film awards, and was the number one movie at the Korean box office in 2010, beating out Inception 和 Iron Man 2.
