Lee Byung-heon, Kang Dong-won face off for Kim Woo-bin’s loyalty in Master

Buzz surrounding the upcoming action thriller Master is building up, especially since its recent promo poster and trailer release. The semi-caper movie has a star-studded cast list: Lee Byung-heon (The Magnificent Seven), Kang Dong-won (Vanishing Time: A Boy Who Returned), and Kim Woo-bin (Uncontrollably Fond) feature as the film’s main leads, with Eom Ji-won (Thrice Married Woman), Jin Kyung (Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim), and Oh Dal-soo (Tunnel) rounding out the supporting roles.

Lee Byung-heon plays the villainous CEO Jin, a smooth-talking charmer with a talent for bamboozling people out of their hard-earned money. He heads a cult-like corporation called One Network, which gets thousands of members to join and pool their assets together in a pyramid scheme that ultimately only enriches the people at the top. He thinks, “The more enemies, the better. The stronger, the better.” In the trailer, CEO Jin’s chilling lack of guilt and skewed moral code are revealed when he says: “When you deal with petty cash, it’s called scamming. But when you deal with trillions, do you know what it’s called?” Still fraud in my book, but perhaps some bribable politicians would term it business.

If CEO Jin is the handsome face of the operation, Park Jang-goon is the brains. He’s the brilliant programmer who helped create One Network, played by Kim Woo-bin. In hot pursuit of these two big-league con artists is Kim Jae-myung, the leader of the white-collar crimes police task force team, played by Kang Dong-won. Determined to catch the duplicitous CEO at any cost, the cop entices the computer genius to switch sides, asking for just two things: the location of One Network’s data control center and CEO Jin’s hidden account book. Somewhere along the way, CEO Jin realizes a traitor has snitched on his organization, and the real action begins.

Eom Ji-won plays Shin Jemma, a police lieutenant under Kim Jae-myung. Her poster reads: “We don’t investigate just anyone.” On the opposite side, we have Mother Kim (played by Jin Kyung) and Lawyer Hwang (played by Oh Dal-soo). Mother Kim is the marketing director of One Network and CEO Jin’s right-hand woman. Lawyer Hwang is a prosecutor-turned-attorney who acts as the CEO’s guard dog, protecting his back and his company’s interests. As everyone closes in on linchpin Kim Woo-bin, loyalties switch quickly from one side to the next, and you never know who you can trust.

High-stakes con movie Master will be in theaters starting this December.

Plot twist/SPOILER from UF: Shin Joon Young survives the brain cancer because of Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim, but the treatment twists his personality. Grateful that her son is alive, Shin Young Ok decides to serve Teacher Kim as the head nurse at a hospital in the boonies, while at the same time, managing her son's shifty business. ?

LOL! So that's why Nurse Oh (her hospital alias) is such a mama bear! It'd be lovely if KDW were to show up at Geosun to arrest Dr. Do for conspiracy and records tampering...

Lol, it will be epic fanfic. Jin Kyung and KWB have good mother son chemistry.

Btw, it seems Jin Kyung here is supposed to be KDW's mother right?

No, Jin Kyung's on the One Network side - her code name is Mother but she's not actually anyone's mother (from what's released so far).

Worth watching it for Oh Dal-soo who is one of the best supporting actor in Chungmuro.

I loved Kim Woo Bin in Twenty, it was something different from his usual brooding roles and he did a really good job there. And seeing the trailer for this, it looks like he's going to do a pretty good job here too. I think I like him better in movies, lol.

I'm so glad they've NOT made the programmer a four eyed- unsocial-intomed in a dark room-gaming-nerd.
