HUNT (2022) Preview of Lee Jung-jae’s espionage action thriller with trailer and clip



‘Two rivals. A hidden truth.’
Hunt is a 2022 South Korean espionage action thriller film about two security chiefs unravelling a plot to kill the president.

Directed, produced by and starring actor turned filmmaker Lee Jung-jae (Squid Game), making his feature directorial debut, from a screenplay co-written with Jo Seung-hee.

The movie also stars Jung Woo-sung, Heo Sung-tae, Jeon Hye-jin and Jeong Man-sik.

After a high-ranking North Korean official requests asylum, South Korean KCIA Foreign Unit chief Park Pyong-ho (Lee Jung-jae) and Domestic Unit chief Kim Jung-do (Jung Woo-sung) are both tasked with uncovering a North Korean spy, known as Donglim, who is deeply embedded within their agency.

When the spy begins leaking top-secret intel that could jeopardise national security, the two units are each assigned to investigate each other. Tension and animosity mount between the two chiefs, as they both know if they cannot find the mole, they may be accused themselves.


Pyung-ho and Jung-do begin to slowly uncover the truth but, in the end, they must deal with an unthinkable plot to assassinate the South Korean president… An operation that tests the faith of two men caught between suspicion and vigilance.

Hunt will premiere at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival in May 2022.
