Screenplay by ,


111min | Release date in South Korea :

Once upon a time in Korea, the Minister of Defense, SONG Pil-joon, gets rid of his political opponents and assumes complete control of the armed forces. Also Song goes on to stamp counterfeit money. Detective Nam-soon goes forthrightly undercover with her partner Detective Ahn to investigate the counterfeit money. She discovers that one loyal henchman, Sad Eyes, a beautiful swordsman with a pale, blank face, is covering up Minister Song’s tracks. Nam-soon and Sad Eyes confront each other in a series of duels - tirelessly chasing, being pursued and dodging each other. Inevitably, they fall in love. Each struggles to reconcile the desperate conflict between love and obligation to duty, as they square off to meet their fate in one last duel.

  • [HanCinema's Actor Spotlight] Kang Dong-won

    A desirable appearance and star appeal are things that feed one's popularity. For young male South Korean actors, the fastest way to fame is often through the female audience's hearts and the marketability they gain from them. However, this is not always as good as it sounds. Attractive stars usually have to work twice as hard for their acting to be seen above their looks and it does not always happen. Kang Dong-won has successfully gone from a simple heartthrob to someone valued for his talent,...More
  • [HanCinema's Actor Spotlight] Lee Han-wi

For anyone with even entry-level experience with South Korean cinema and drama, Lee is a face they have seen at least once. He has been in every type of work and role imaginable and even if not in a major one, he is memorable every single time. With a career of three decades and counting, Lee Han-wi is an entertaining and beloved veteran,...More

However, Kang has now returned in a new costume film, "KUNDO : Age of the Rampant", where he plays Jo-yoon, a tenacious governor from the Jeolla area during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). The 32-year-old actor sat down with Ilgan Sports, an affiliate of Korea JoongAng Daily, to talk about his latest role,...More
