'Man from Nowhere' is a thriller coming to U.S.

By Jeff Chung


Actor Won Bin ("Mother," "My Brother" and "Taegukki") stars in a new Korean blockbuster, "The Man from Nowhere," scheduled for U.S. release in October. He plays ex-special agent Cha Tae-sik, who tries to save a young girl, So-mi, from drug dealers who also trade in human organs.
