SEOUL, April 6 (Yonhap) -- South Korean filmmaker Kim Jee-woon's new film "Secret Agent" has recently finished its five months of filming in China and South Korea, its production company and distributor said Wednesday.

Set in 1920s Korea under Japanese colonial rule, the period drama follows an armed anti-Japanese Korean independence movement group that strives to smuggle a bomb in from Shanghai to attack major Japanese facilities in Seoul.

Filming ended in Seoul on March 31, five months after it began in Shanghai on Oct. 22, Warner Bros. Korea said.

The movie stars Song Kang-ho as a Japanese police officer hunting down the group members and actor Gong Yoo as the group leader. Song Kang-ho has previously appeared in Kim's Korean-style Western "The Good, the Bad, the Weird" and director Bong Joon-ho's English-language debut film "Snowpiercer."

"Secret Agent," or "Miljeong" in Korean, is the first Korean-language film to be financed by the Hollywood film studio Warner Bros. It is expected to open in local theaters in the second half of this year.
