Jun and Kang are cast as a career diplomat and international special agent in the political series, per a press statement from a Korean streaming platform.


The Korean series tells the story of a determined career diplomat Seo Mun-ju (Jun Ji-hyun) who is gunning to uncover the truth behind an attack that threatens the Korean peninsula. She then meets international special agent Sanho (Kang Dong-won) who is hiding secrets of his own.

Jun and Kang established themselves as megastars in South Korea in their own rights, appearing in popular K-dramas and films throughout their careers.

Jun, also known as Gianna Jun, is best known for her lead roles in “My Love from the Star,” “The Legend of the Blue Sea,” and “Jirisan,” as well as the films “Il Mare,” “My Sassy Girl,” and “Assassination.”
