Debut Trailer for Korean Action Flick The Man From Nowhere


Hoorah for South Korean cinema! Not a day goes by that I don’t read an article featuring a film from this insanely production region that I cannot wait to get my Purcell-coated hands on. Jeong-Beom Lee’s upcoming action/thriller “The Man From Nowhere” is yet another promising endeavor that has popped up on my radar recently, thanks in part to the hard-working individuals at the always-reliable Film Smash. The teaser trailer, as well as the film’s official poster, have been included for your infinite, endless entertainment.

Before we get to the good stuff, a quick plot synopsis:

An ex-special agent CHA Tae-sik’s only connection to the rest of the world is a little girl, So-mi, who lives nearby. So-mi’s mother, Hyo-jeong smuggles drugs from a drug trafficking organization and entrusts Tae-sik with the product, without letting him know. When the traffickers find out they kidnap both Hyo-jeong and So-mi. Mistaking Tae-sik for another mule, the brothers that lead the gang promise to release Hyo-jeong and So-mi if Tae-sik makes a delivery for them. After much consideration, Tae-sik makes the decision to face the outside world in order to rescue So-mi. At the same time, Hyo-jeong’s disemboweled body is discovered, and Tae-sik realizes that So-mi’s life may also be in danger. In the process, he discovers that their drug ring operates around kidnapped children. Stumbling upon a factory where the brothers have children’s organs removed to accommodate the drugs, Tae-sik rescues one child just before surgery and becomes enraged at the prospect So-mi may already be dead. Tae-sik prepares for a battle with Man-sik and Jong-sik, putting his own life at risk.

If you’re hungry for more, the aforementioned media awaits.
