The backdrop is the second Manchu invasion of 1636, which brought Qing invaders to conquer Joseon, who took 500,000 Koreans from the peninsula as prisoners.
Park plays the son of a rebel whose family is killed, leaving his sister as his only living relative (played by Moon Chae-won, busy doing double sageuk duty with her Princess’s Man currently airing on TV as well). On the day of his wedding, his beloved is dragged off by Qing attackers. He grabs his father’s bow and advances on the Qing soldiers, whom Ryu Seung-ryong leads.
With his eerily accurate aim, he picks off the enemy in ones and twos as he gradually infiltrates their camp. Once his presence is discovered — not hard when men start dropping like flies all of a sudden — men are sent to capture him, but because of the peculiar angled shooting technique he utilizes, it’s nearly impossible to detect his whereabouts, thus allowing him to continue wreaking havoc on his enemies.
Dude, one man versus a legion? It doesn’t get any more epic than that."He seems to be able to make the arrow take unusual flight paths by twisting the string vertically as he shoots. There are several trailers for it on line.
