The Tiger: An Old Hunter's Tale (2015)

Recommended Posts

The director of 'The New World', Park Hoon-jeong, is back with the new movie 'The Tiger: An Old Hunter's Tale', which is set for release at the end of the year.


Starring Choi Min-sik ('The Admiral: Roaring Currents'), the tale is set in the final days of the Joseon era, when Korea was under Japanese rule.  Min-sik will play a local hunter who's given the task of hunting down the last tiger in Korea. 


Much like 'The Admiral: Roaring Currents' and 'Ode to my Father', this looks to be plugging into the current trend of Korean patriotism, as Min-sik's characters main motivation seems to be to not let the tiger die at the hands of the Japanese.  Hoon-jeong has proved to be both a solid director and writer (he scripted both 'The Unjust' and 'I Saw the Devil'), so hopefully this should be worth a look.
