South Korean actors Son Ye Jin and Hyun Bin held a press conference to promote their new film Negotiation in Seoul on August 9. The movie centres on the worst hostage incident in Thailand, with Hyun Bin taking on his first villainous role as a kidnapper, and Ye Jin playing a negotiator.
Hyun Bin revealed that he was interested in a film that tackles the subject of "negotiation", and that found the one-on-one showdown structure "fun". "I was very curious about the back story," he said. "I paid attention to my character in order to make my portrayal more effective and strong."
Ye Jin admitted that she felt a lot of pressure as she was playing someone in charge for the first time, and that the biggest challenge was sitting in the same position while having to show more and more emotions. She also revealed that she agreed to take on the project partly because of Hyun Bin.
