Among all the female leads of Hyun Bin’s movie projects, Yoona is considered the “lucky” actress when many of her movies with the actor have achieved formidable success.
Hyun Bin and Yoona have worked together twice in two parts of the series “Confidential Assignment“. In particular, with “Confidential Assignment”, which was released in 2017, the film’s box office revenue reached 7.81 million tickets, equivalent to a revenue of more than $56 million.

In addition to the successful commercial performance, Hyun Bin and Yoona’s acting ability and excellent chemistry when working together in “Confidential Assignment” are also highly appreciated. According to audiences who have the opportunity to participate in the movie’s sneak show, the acting of the couple in the sequel is many times better than its previous part.
Previously, Hyun Bin collaborated with his wife Son Ye Jin in the movie “Negotiation” (2018). The film only earned $15.6 million – quite a success for a movie. However, this result did not meet the expectations set by the public for the couple Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin. At that time, the film received mixed reviews when its content was said to have wasted the name and talent of its cast.

The audience believes that there are many contributing factors to the impressive success that Hyun Bin and Yoona has achieved on the big screen. It can be seen that the projects they participate in all have huge investments in terms of funding, attractive content, and a methodical communication plan that is strong enough to attract the audience’s curiosity.
As for the case of “Negotiation”, the content of the film is said to be quite difficult to absorb and the acting of Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin is not carefully exploited.
It is known that, despite not being the “lucky goddess” of Hyun Bin in his big-screen projects, talented actresses like Son Ye Jin and Ha Ji Won all have an important role in Hyun Bin’s drama projects, helping him win a lot of Daesangs in this field.
According to information from the producer, the movie “Confidential Assignment 2” will be released on September 7. In addition to the presence of Hyun Bin and Yoona, the audience expects the two’s co-stars to also gather at the event to support the project.
