- "In Tokyo I was lost. And then one day, Mr. Nobody came calling"
- ―Han explaining how he faked his death
The Attack on Han Seoul-Oh was an unsuccessful mission undertaken by Deckard Shaw to track down and kill Han Seoul-Oh in Tokyo. On the other hand, it was a successful mission by Mr. Nobody who used this attack to fake the death of Han so that he could protect Project Aries and Elle.
At some point prior to Fast & Furious 6, Gisele Yashar had worked alongside Mr. Nobody in the CIA. Mr. Nobody was aware of the connection between her and her boyfriend, Han. After Gisele's death, Han, who had since become a prominent Tokyo street racer and business partner of Takashi, was approached by Mr. Nobody in Tokyo and was offered a job to recover half of the Project Aries device that was being held by the devices creators. Whilst Han was recovering the device, the parents were killed, by rogue agents sent to them by Mr. Nobody's former associate Jakob Toretto, and he saved their young daughter, Elle from being killed.
Knowing that Jakob was going to sent people after Han to recover Project Aries, Mr. Nobody decided to fake Han's death so that he and Elle, who was the key to unlocking Project Aries, could go into hiding where Jakob couldn't find them. Mr. Nobody was aware of an incoming enemy who was coming after Han and used that to his advantage.
After learning of his brother's comatose state, Deckard Shaw travelled to a military hospital in London where he visited his brother, fighting his way into the hospital and killing multiple special forces, after making amends with his brother, Deckard vowed to take revenge and left the demolished hospital.
Deckard then travelled to Los Angeles where he infiltrated the office of the Diplomatic Security Service to obtain the files on the "team that crippled his brother", after engaging in a fight with Luke Hobbs. which lead to him becoming bed ridden in hospital after jumping out of a window to save the life of Elena Neves. Shaw travelled to Tokyo to locate and kill Han Seoul-Oh.
Whilst in Tokyo, Deckard obtained a 1992 Mercedes S-Klasse and observed Han. On the night, Han is forced to flee from his garage with Sean Boswell as they are being chased by Takashi who wants revenge on Han for stealing money from Yakuza.
Unbeknownst to Han, he is being tracked on police scanners by Deckard who travels through streets of Tokyo to find Han. After finally locating him in an intersection near the Shibuya district, Deckard turns down a street and T-Bone's Han's car, making it look as if it was an accident caused by running a red light. Deckard steps out of the car, unaware that Sean and Neela are watching him, and leaves Dominic Toretto's cross necklace behind, before calling Dom right as the car explodes.
Unbeknownst to Shaw, as well as Takashi, Sean and Neela, Han and the car were all a hologram setup by Mr. Nobody whereas the real Han was standing on the side of the road observing the events with Mr. Nobody. As the car exploded, Mr. Nobody exclaimed that that hard part was keeping Han dead (hidden).
While the attack on Han was believed by all to be successful, Han stayed hidden underground with Elle, protecting her and Project Aries.
In order to set things right, Sean Boswell walks on over to the Yakuza hideout using the money he and Twinkie earned as passage. There he finds Neela and about to be pummeled again by Takashi but was stopped by his Uncle Kamata. Sean not only hands the money over to Kamata as apology but also propose a final street race against Takashi. Winner stays in Tokyo and the title of DK, loser gets banished forever. Unbeknownst to Sean, Takashi picks the race location at his mountain since he is only one to make it to the bottom as stated by Twinkie.
Deckard returns to the United States to take revenge on the rest of the team, Dom first encounters him after they run their cars into each other in a game of chicken. Shaw then infiltrates Dom's mission to rescue Ramsay and then follows him to Abu Dhabi. Eventually they both return to LA where Dom and Shaw fight on the top of a parking garage. Shaw becomes trapped in the rubble after the garage collapses and is taken into custody by Hobbs.
Three years later, Deckard is broken out of prison by Mr. Nobody to help the team stop Dom and Cipher, Deckard eventually makes amends with Dom and the team after saving his son's life and they part ways, with Deckard presumably returning to London.
Whilst in London, Deckard reunites with his sister, Hattie Shaw and Hobbs where they undertake a mission to stop Brixton Lore, Deckard eventually tells his sister that he needs to make amends with the people he has hurt, and make up for the things he has done, including seemingly killing Han.
Five years after the attack, Project Aries is stolen and Dominic Toretto's Crew learn that Han has been working with Mr. Nobody. Mia Toretto and Letty Ortiz travel to Tokyo to find out more information where they meet Elle and are attacked by Agents who are killed by Han. Mia, Letty, Elle and Han return to the rest of the crew where Han reveals that he is alive and where he has been.
After the events of F9, Han tracked down Deckard where the two came face-to-face for the first time since the attack.

- Fast & Furious 6 (post-credits scene)
- Furious 7
- The Fate of the Furious (indirectly mentioned)
- Hobbs & Shaw (indirectly mentioned)
- Fast & Furious 9
- It is possible that Mr. Nobody used these events as motivation for Dom to help him find Ramsey, convincing him that Han was dead when he knew all along that he wasn't.
