Tae-yeul (JANG Hyeok), a swordsman in his thirties goes out to find his only daughter after losing one of his eyes. MIN Seung-ho(JEONG Man-sik), The Joseon Dynasty’s best swordsman chooses an ordinary simple life after perceiving the transient nature of power. Gurutai (JOE Taslim), the best swordsman in Qing Dynasty aspires to become the best even in the Joseon Dynasty.
There’s no release date yet for this latest outing from feature debut director Choi Jae-Hoon who previously served in the art departments for Pang Eun-jin’s Princess Aurora and Gong Jeong-shik’s Detective Mr. Gong. The film hails from Opus Pictures and United Pictures who’ve quietly been rolling out some visuals, though the still below is currently the first clear look at two of our cast members on set.
