In response to the reports, a source from SM Entertainment confirmed, “YoonA has received the offer to star in ‘Confidential Assignment 2,’ and she is reviewing the offer.”
If she accepts the role, she may be starring in the sequel with Hyun Bin and Yoo Hae Jin, who she co-starred with in “Confidential Assignment” in 2017.

After being acknowledged for her potential and acting skills through projects such as “Confidential Assignment,” YoonA starred in the hit film “E.X.I.T” last year, which surpassed 9 million moviegoers at the Korean box office.
