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.

She discovers that one loyal henchman, Sad Eyes, a beautiful swordsman with a pale, blank face, is covering up Minister Song’s tracks.

  • [HanCinema's Actor Spotlight] Lee Han-wi

    2014/11/01,
    What introduction can one really give an actor like Lee Han-wi? A better question would be, who does not know 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
  • Kang back in bitter bad boy role

    2014/07/21, Source,
    Kang Dong-won Korean actor Kang Dong-won has charmed viewers as a good-natured country boy in movies like "Too Beautiful To Lie" (2004) or "Temptation of Wolves" (2004) and has also impressed audiences as a heartless villain in "Duelist" (2005) and "M" (2007). But the public hasn't seen Kang In any role for four years because he's been undergoing his mandatory military service and taking some time off. 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

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Duelist"

    2013/11/01,
    'Damo' is a series a lot of people will know. Being quite a popular title and undoubtedly one that helped Ha Ji-won rise to fame, it is an important piece of Korean television for many reasons. 'Duelist' has some things in common with it. Both movies are based on the same manhwa and both star Ha Ji Won as the female lead. However, that might very well be where their similarities end. The format is different, one being a drama and the other a movie, but 'Duelist' being a work by Lee Myeong-se means it is also an unapologetic art film. This makes it more of a fusion sageuk, as many elements, from wardrobe to the music, take creative liberty and are simply not consistent with the era the movie is set in,...More
