The Guardian is an action-drama film about a loving son who will do anything and everything for his mother.

Filipino fans of K-movies are in for a treat as they watch their favorite Korean idols star along with Pinoy actors in a film set in the Philippines.

Starring Nam Woo Hyun (vocalist of Korean idol group Infinite) together with actress Park Eun Hye (Steel Rain and Alchemy of Souls), and Hallyu star Han Jae Seok, The Guardian is now filming and aims for a global release.

The Guardian is an action-drama film about a loving son who will do anything and everything for his mother.

Park Do Jun (Nam Woo Hyun) and his mother Mi-jin (Park Eun Hye) are Korean nationals who moved to the Philippines. Back in Korea, Do Jun showed talent in taekwondo and dreamt of becoming a national player, but he gave that all up to be with his mom.

Though Do Jun has a great amount of love for his mother, they’ve always had a strained relationship because of Mi-jin’s gambling addiction. Over the years, Mi- jin’s gambling problem worsens to the point that Do Jun drops out of college to find a job and support himself. At work, he becomes friends with Sandara (Yassi Pressman), who dreams of becoming a K-pop star, and Coco (Eric Ejercito).

One day, Mi-jin disappears and Do Jun receives word that she was kidnapped by the notorious gang leader (Han Jae Seok), who runs the largest Korean criminal organization in the Philippines.

It’s now up to Do Jun to rescue Mi-jin no matter what. As he risks his life and everything that he has, will he be able to succeed, or will Do Jun be too late to protect his mother?

This multi-collab project also stars Heart Ryan, Ashtine Olviga, Wilbert Ross, Joko Diaz, and Jeric Raval.
