Exciting non stop action thriller !
This book should be made into a movie for sure !
We need another Asian American leading actor in a movie. I wonder whether Ricky Kim or Daniel Henney can be the lead actor here. I also want Lisa from Blackpink !!! – Amazon Reviewer
Slave Song is a breathtaking modern tale of survival and redemption.
A mysterious man returns to South Korea to stand trial for a crime he committed 20 years ago… a brutal murder of his parents. But SongBae is no ordinary man: the secrets he holds can cripple nations, a powerful drug cartel, and a billion-dollar corporation. The race is on for those who will do anything to kill him and those risking everything to save him.
On a bridge connecting Incheon International Airport to Seoul, Korea, an elite team of soldiers ambush a police convoy transporting prisoner SongBae Lim, who’s been extradited from America to stand trial for murdering his parents 20 years ago. A deadly firefight erupts, and what authorities first believed a rescue of SongBae, turns out to be an assassination attempt of him.
Just when assassins close in for the kill, another group of soldiers appears to protect SongBae. Caught in the crossfire is lead prosecutor Yeshin Seo, a beautiful idealist who is in charge of bringing SongBae to justice in Korea. But what she uncovers is a conspiracy protecting one of the largest corporate giants in South Korea and a young mother who vanished without a trace.

His thoughts on being a Korean American Filmmaker:
“I started my filmmaking career in 1996 with the release of my first short film My Brown Eyes. Following the success of this film, I had an opportunity to make my first feature length film three years later. TRUE was a bittersweet experience for me. Although it was received fantastically by film festival audiences, distributors ultimately passed on this film because of its lack of marketability. TRUE was an all-Korean American cast, Korean American Story, which the mainstream American audience was not ready for in 1999. But even after it failed to find distribution, I did not regret making this film. Some say history is written by those who’ve won the war… in that same spirit, TRUE is a compelling account of the Korean American immigrant experience, and if we ONLY tell stories that have marketability, we are in danger of losing this significant niche in cultural history. Like all films, TRUE is immortal, and it will outlast my existence here on earth and outlast all race politics that exist today. My goal as a filmmaker is to make films that not only entertain but are significant. Every film we create, whether we intend to or not, is a contribution to our history. We must choose carefully what we leave behind.”
