The Veil is the winner of the 2018 MBC Drama Script Contest by writer Park Seok-ho, and is the story of a top-ranking NIS agent who went missing a year ago, returning to the organization to find an insider traitor who dropped him into the abyss.
Namgoong-min is permeated into the character of Han Ji-hyuk itself with an attitude that maintains a cool attitude, a strong gaze, and an unwavering expression even at the scene of an urgent incident. While getting caught up in a dangerous situation, getting injured and bleeding, he constantly digs into the truth, and his eyes that change violently while calling someone gives a foreboding of the birth of a heart-wrenching spy action drama that has never been seen before.
In addition, Namgoong-min’s ‘bulk-up’ physical is also overwhelming, increasing the immersion of prospective viewers. Namgoong-min showed efforts to perfectly digest the character, such as successfully gaining over 10kg through exercise for a radical transformation in ‘Black Sun’. Expectations are already rising as to how he will portray Han Ji-hyeok’s transformation, who becomes a ‘reaper’ to find the traitor who killed his colleagues.
