Assassination is a 2015 South Korean espionage action film co-written and directed by Choi Dong-hoon. The film is currently the eighth-highest-grossing movie in Korean film history with over 12.7 million admissions. In 1911, during Japan's rule over Korea, a resistance fighter named Yem Sek-jin tries but fails to assassinate the governor-general and a pro-Japanese businessman named Kang In-guk. That evening, Kang discovers that his own wife was helping Yem. Kang kills his wife but a wet nurse runs off with one of his twin daughters. By 1933, there are over 30 Korean independence factions operating in Korea, China, and Manchuria. Yem has become a captain in one of these factions, but his colleagues are unaware that he is secretly reporting to the Japanese, since back in 1911 he was tortured by the Japanese into submission.
