Bargaining is a South Korean thriller that follows a group of South Koreans who are taken hostage by Taliban in Afghanistan. The story unfolds through a series of tense negotiation meetings. While the lead negotiator struggles to reach a deal, the characters themselves undergo significant transformations.
Production delayed due to COVID-19 pandemic
A large number of television programs in a variety of countries have been halted or delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The impacts of the pandemic have been significant on all sectors of the entertainment industry.
Although the pandemic itself has not affected anyone directly involved in the shows, it has negatively impacted the production and revenue of the television industry. While some shows have been able to resume production remotely, others have been halted for the time being.
Some of the first programs to be paused were those with international casts. Among them were “Who Wants to be a Millionaire,” “The Price Is Right,” “Mission Impossible 7,” “Law & Order: SVU,” and “Batwoman.” Others, including “Schooled,” “The Bachelorette,” and “Home and Away,” have been suspended.
The pandemic’s impact on the supply chain continues to be widespread. It’s disrupted the supply of raw materials, components, and finished goods, as well as manufacturing, health, and social systems.
As more companies and sectors are faced with this threat, the industry is evolving to be more resilient. Increasingly, organizations are looking to rethink how they manage their supply chains. They are focusing on investing in autonomous supply chains, retraining workers, and updating their processes to accommodate disruption.
Hyun Bin’s character struggles to work with the operation’s lead negotiator
Crash Landing on You tells the story of two star-crossed lovers. It was directed by Lee Jeong-hyo, and it stars Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin.
When the drama’s protagonist Yoon Se-ri falls into the DMZ, a mysterious North Korean captain named Ri Jeong-hyeok rescues her. He’s a captain in the Korean People’s Army, and he keeps an eye on Se-ri. However, when Ri falls in love with Se-ri, he wants to help her get home to the South.
Meanwhile, in South Korea, the chaebol heiress Yoon Seri is paragliding in Seoul when a tornado blows her off course. During her flight, she crashes into the North Korean area of the DMZ. But she recovers after being rushed to a hospital. The captain of the DMZ patrol team, Ri Jeong-hyeok, was a friend of Seri’s. And, as a result, he’s been watching her all this time.
Captain Ri is a friend of the heiress’s and wants to protect her. However, he’s also very suspicious of her. In fact, he searches her hotel room for clues about her whereabouts. Eventually, he discovers that her hotel room is bugged and he ends up becoming friends with her.
Son Ye Jin’s agency clears dating rumors
Son Ye Jin’s agency recently spoke up about some dating rumours. The two stars are reportedly in a relationship, though they prefer to keep their private lives a secret. They’ve been spotted together in the U.S. and a grocery store in Los Angeles.
In fact, the two celebrities are known for their onscreen chemistry, especially after filming the rom-com drama Crash Landing on You. Their romance is said to have developed after the series ended.
Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin have been in the news for various reasons since the series premiered. Their love story has also been the subject of a few rumors, including that they’ve been married. However, no proof has been presented.
Moreover, the rumor that they’ve been dating for the past eight months isn’t exactly true. That’s because they’ve actually tied the knot earlier this year.
On the other hand, they’ve been caught in a few other dating rumors. For example, they’ve been rumored to be a couple ever since they starred together in the rom-com “Crash Landing on You.”
While a few fans were clamoring for more confirmation, Son and Hyun did manage to provide a bit of news of their own. This time, they were on the verge of marriage. Not only that, but they had a baby boy!

In his upcoming film Bargaining, Hyun Bin has gone through a big transformation. He will now play an NIS agent who will be sent to Afghanistan to save hostages.

Bargaining is directed by Yim Soon Rye, who is known for her bold approach to tackling challenging issues in her films. She is also nominated for a SBS Drama Award for her work.
In his new role, Hyun Bin will display his raw charisma as an NIS agent. This is the first movie Hyun Bin has been a part of after becoming a father.
