It can be recalled that the release of “Mission: Cross” was temporarily halted to mourn the untimely passing of Jeon Hye Jin’s husband, Lee Sun Kyun.

Originally, the action-comedy movie was slated to hit theaters in February, during the Lunar New Year holiday, but had to be pushed back following the devastating news.

Helmed by Lee Myung Hoon, it depicts the story of a former agent named Kang Moo (Hwang Jung Min) who wants to conceal his past from his wife.

Now that he is the man of the house, his wife, Mi Sun (Yum Jung Ah), an ace detective, misreads the signs and thinks that Kang Moo is hiding something from her. Due to this, she is eager to find her husband’s dirty little secret.

Joining “Mission: Cross” is Jeon Hye Jin, who plays a significant role as Hee Joo.

Other than the trio, the upcoming movie will also feature a roster of talented stars, including Kim Joo Heon, Jung Man Sik, and more.
