Min-su An, also known as the Eight of Hearts, is a member of General Kang's "Circle of Five" and a physicist working to create nuclear weapons during Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction.

ExOps bio[]

Name: Min-su An
"An is another member of Kang's "Circle of Five". His background and official title are unknown, but intelligence suspects An is an experienced physicist with the knowledge and engineering background necessary to master the equations that govern a fissile body's critical mass. An served in the DPRK military for six years as a young man and can be considered a military threat."


He is located in the Northern Province of North Korea, along with the Spades. However, An and the other Hearts can only be verified after the completion of the Ace of Diamonds contract.

His exact location is south-east of the city of Chongju, at the end of the dirt road that breaks off south of the road heading east of Chongju.

An is armed with a Light MG and is protected by around 3 T-62s, many continuously spawning T-62 tanks from the nearby bunker and a few KPA soldiers.

Due the high abundance of tanks, and the large explosive barrels right next to An, it is quite difficult to take him alive. One strategy involves taking a disguised civilian or North Korean vehicle and driving near An in order to scare him. Using this method you can push him further away from the containers and tanks and once you've cleared the area exit the vehicle, subdue him, and then extract him further down the road.

Subject: Min-su An, the 8 of Hearts
Colonel Garrett forwarded me some Allied intel on the current whereabouts of Min-su An, the 8 of Hearts. An Allied place has spotted some suspicious activity southeast of Chongju and wants you to check it out. If they're right, this will be a great first step in shutting down Colonel Han's nuclear program.

GSRN Report[]

Upon capturing/verifying the Eight of Hearts, GSRN Trucks will broadcast the following report:

"After what many predicted would be a long firefight, Min-su An, the Eight of Hearts, surrendered this morning to Allied forces. An was a member of Kang's exclusive Circle of Five, high ranking physicists responsible for completing General Song's nuclear weapons."

  • An, along with the Jack, Queen, King and Ace, are the only Hearts members who have some sort of military experience.
