Status: Filming

Plot: With its character based on a traditional folk hero, a modern day private detective working in the underground audaciously confronts the dark secret behind a massive cult.

The famous Hong Gil-dong returns to the screen yet again under the direction of Jo Sung-hee. He proved more than capable of steering a big romantic fantasy to success (A Werewolf Boy, 2012) but the talent he showed in his KAFA debut End of Animal (2010) is what has really kept me interested in this director. This could be a lot of fun, but I'm not quite sold yet.
