Lee Joon Ik's latest film hits local theater Friday

By Jeff Chung

POSTED:



"Blades of Blood," a historical action movie, will be released at the Pearlridge West 16 Consolidated Theatre on Friday. The latest film by acclaimed director Lee Joon Ik, known for "The King and The Clown," stars Cha Seung Won, Hwang Jung Min, Han Ji Hye and Han Ji Hae.

The film, based on a comic series by writer Park Heung-yong, was picked up by foreign movie buyers at the recent Cannes Film Festival.

 

THIS WEEK'S SYNOPSES

Scheduling update: Due to FIFA World Cup soccer games, many dramas have been pre-empted. For several weeks we will be showing two episodes of "Definitely Neighbor" on Sundays and one each on Mondays and Tuesdays. Should the Korean national soccer team advance, the pre-emption will continue, delaying the return of our regular schedule.
