After more than a decade of familiar action heroes like Lee Byeong-Heon, Jeong Woo-seong, Jang Dong-gun and even Song Kang-ho, heart throb Won Bin is about to get his turn. "The Man From Nowhere" is Won Bin's first film since "Mother - 2009" (2009) which screened to critical acclaim at last year's Cannes. Won Bin plays alongside child actor Kim Sae-ron who starred in French/Korean film "A Brand New Life" directed by Ounie Lecomte and produced by "Poetry" (2010) director Lee Chang-dong.

The movie follows CHA Tae-sik (Won Bin) a down and out ex special agent, who has hidden himself away from life. His only real relationship to the world is through a little girl, So-mi (Kim Sae-ron) who lives next door. The action begins when So-mi's mother who smuggles drugs embroils Tae-sik in the ensuing drama. After So-mi and her mother are kidnapped, Tae-sik must make the decision to leave his self imposed exile or become a hero.

Won Bin was first seen in the TV drama Propose and came to national attention with "Autumn in my Heart" (2000). He made his movie debut in 2001 with "Guns and talks" (2001) and became a national star in "Taegukgi" (2004) which became one of Korea's top box office hits of all time. He made his return to the screen after serving his mandatory military duty with "Mother - 2009" (2009).

"The Man From Nowhere" is produced by CJ Entertainment and has a tentative release date of August.
