In Confidential Assignment 2: International, Hyun Bin reprised his role as North Korean detective Lim Cheol Ryeong who is tasked to return to South Korea for a special mission along with detective Kang Jin Tae.
For this operation, the duo will be working with an FBI detective from the United States, Jack. Their mission is to hunt down the global criminal organization led by the new villain Jang Myung Joon, played by Jin Sun Kyu.
During the interview, he shared how he is thrilled to be reunited with Yoo Hae Jin and was comfortable working with him for Confidential Assignment 2: International.
For Hyun Bin, it was easier for him to share thoughts during the production since he is with people whom he felt at ease with.
“I think it showed well on the screen,” he said.
As for his comeback movie, the Hallyu star shared that he is “constantly trying to show something new” to the audience by trying out new genres.
While viewers often saw Hyun Bin in action-packed series or romance K-dramas, he mentioned that one of the things that he wanted to do was comedy.
“I have a desire to try comedy. But as you all know, I'm not a funny person,” he added.
Confidential Assignment 2: International which is set to hit the big screen on September 7, is Hyun Bin’s comeback movie after four years.
In addition, it is also his first project since his wedding to Son Ye Jin.

“It hasn't hit me yet, but it usually seems like that,” he said, adding “When I ask people around, they say, ‘You have to see it to feel it's real.’ I also think so, and I'm waiting with a good heart because it's such a huge blessing.”
Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin’s baby is also the reason why the actor prefers doing virtual interviews instead of face-to-face meet and greets and conferences.
The actor explained that he is being careful and thanked everyone for understanding.
