Upcoming crime action flick “Master” boasts a stellar cast featuring Lee Byung-hun, Kang Dong-won and Kim Woo-bin, three of the most in-demand actors in the Korean film scene today.

“Master,” set to start shooting in early 2016, tells the story of an investigative team chasing after a wanted scammer and his posse.

Kang Dong-won, who recently appeared in the box-office hit “The Priests,” will take on his first police role as Kim Jae-myung, the cool, charismatic head of the investigative unit.

Playing “Chairman Jin,” the silver-tongued head of a network of scammers, will be Lee Byung-hun, a Korean actor whose long resume speaks for itself. Lee’s appearance as boisterous gangster Ahn Sang-goo in the political thriller “Inside Men” made huge waves last month, and the film has already been viewed by a whopping 6 million cinemagoers. 

Model-turned-actor Kim Woo-bin, best known for his role in the hit TV drama series “The Heirs” (2013), will be playing “Gen. Park,” Jin’s right-hand man and the brains of the operations.

The film will be directed by the critically acclaimed Jo Ui-seok, who previously directed police thriller “Cold Eyes” (2013).
