RUNAWAY: PLAN B follows an international cast on a frantic chase around the world for a fortune in gold stolen 60 years ago during the Korean War. Rain stars as Ji Woo, Asia’s top private investigator, who is approached by a mysterious woman named Jin Yi (played by Lee Na Young). Her unknown motives are only made more complicated by the romance that grows between them. Uehara Takako of Japan’s most successful selling J-pop girl group Speed, plays Kieko, a singer who becomes romantically interested in Ji Woo. Long time Japanese actor Takenaka Naoto plays her father Hiroki, who’s outward appearance as a businessman hides that he is if in fact a powerful yakuza. American actor Daniel Henney (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) stars as Kai, whose past with Jin Yi may unravel it all.
Critically acclaimed the world over, South Korea’s most popular movie star and pop singer Rain has found millions of screaming fans in the United States. As “Taejo Togokahn” in the blockbuster movie “Speed Racer”, Rain caught the attention of the Wachowski Brothers (“Matrix Trilogy”), who cast Rain in the lead role for “Ninja Assassin,” directed by James McTeigue (“V for Vendetta”). One of America’s newest pop icons, Rain ranked among People Magazine’s World’s Most Beautiful People and Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People Who Shape Our World in 2009. He popularity spread further when Stephen Colbert repeatedly challenged Rain to appear on Comedy Central’s “Colbert Report” for a dance-off. RUNAWAY: PLAN B marks Rain’s return to Korean primetime, joined by an international cast.
American born Daniel Henney became a household name in South Korean after his role in the hit TV series "My Lovely Sam Soon". His American work includes the role of Agent Zero in the feature film "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" and Dr. David Lee in the CBS television drama "Three Rivers".
