The trailer for Kim Jee-Woon‘s highly anticipated return to feature-length Korean cinema has arrived and it looks fantastic.
The Age of Shadows stars Song Kang-Ho and Yoo Gong and is set in the late 1920’s. The film revolves around Korean resistance fighters taking on the Japanese as they attempt to stop the independence movement. The story becomes a cat-and-mouse game between a top ranking officer and a spy who may have or may not have pulled a triple cross.
Kim’s last feature length film was the Hollywood box office bomb The Last Stand starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Since then, he has done two short films in Korea that same year and gave himself a hiatus until now.
The Age of Shadows will be released in Korea this September.
