Zheng Yusheng plays a rational and elegant South Korean president, while Guo Duyuan plays an ambitious North Korean military officer.
From agent to president, the role played by Zheng Yusheng has changed a lot. The only thing that remains unchanged is the handsome charm of the character. Even the actors who play opposite him are considered handsome.
Zheng Yusheng himself joked that compared to martial arts scenes, his face is the pinnacle.
Although he is known as "the most handsome Korean president", Zheng Woosheng said that playing this role is not easy.
For the sake of national security and peace, he must mediate between powerful countries, which made him deeply feel the loneliness and hardship of the president.

Although "Iron Rain 2" is a sequel, it is a brand new story.
After experiencing the Three Kingdoms War in "Iron Rain", all countries realized that constant fighting could not solve the problem, so they decided to talk calmly.
With this background and willingness, the leaders of South Korea, North Korea and the United States decided to hold peace agreement talks.
However, during the negotiation process, everyone argued constantly due to their different positions.
What is even more shocking is that a North Korean officer launched an armed coup and held the three major leaders as hostages on a nuclear submarine .
Faced with threats from various forces, the world has fallen into a state of tension that is about to break out.
In order to stabilize the situation and survive, the leaders of the three parties held talks again in the nuclear submarine to reverse the situation.
It can be seen that "Iron Rain 2" still focuses on the peninsula issue, but this time the story is more creative and exciting.
can capture all the leaders of the three parties in one fell swoop, and its imagination is no less than that of Hollywood.
The name of the film is "Iron Rain 2: Summit", so the whole story revolves around the peace agreement talks.
In order to make the summit shown in the film more realistic, the director gathered political experts and listened to their suggestions on international issues and diplomatic views.
Therefore, the meeting scenes in the preview are quite in the style of diplomatic negotiations. The two countries insist on their positions and are unwilling to compromise. The entire meeting is full of tense tension.
As a thriller action film, there are many hot scenes in the film.
Fierce gun battles and torpedo bombings.
rocket takes off and satellite positioning.
The most exciting and exciting thing is the nuclear submarine battle hundreds of meters under the sea. Director
used nuclear submarines as a battlefield, facing dual internal and external battles. The whole process was exciting and visually stunning.
Although "Iron Rain 2" is a brand new story, its core is still the same as "Iron Rain".
That is to emphasize the importance of peace.
Just as the president played by Jung Woo-sung in the film said, don’t put the issue on the nuclear issue, but on peace.
Overall, "Iron Rain 2" is pretty good in terms of both its main theme and the viewing experience. Audiences who like
should not miss it.
