The 24-hour notification of the death deadline by the Taliban right after the kidnapping and the watch of diplomat Jeong Jae Ho, which begins to shrink, symbolize the urgency of negotiations.
About the trailer:
In addition, Jung Jae Ho's line that opens the trailer, "I know that one of the important missions of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is to protect its citizens," hints at his sense of mission to save lives, going beyond the basic principle of diplomacy that he cannot negotiate with terrorist groups. In response to Jae Ho’s words that verification must be done first, local NIS agent Dae Shik replied, “Can you take responsibility if another victim comes along?” Collaboration also predicts that it will not be smooth.
About the main characters:
However, overcoming the difference in method and thinking, Jae Ho and Dae Sik, who are advancing to save the hostages under adverse conditions such as the ever-changing demands of the Taliban and the additional sacrifice of the hostages, unfold. and raises expectations for a unique resonance. Kang Ki Young is someone who survived in the back alleys of Afghanistan in 'Negotiation' and is expected to add wit and fun by appearing as Lee Bong Han, also known as 'Kasim', an interpreter indispensable for negotiation operations as he is fluent in the local situation and language.
