K-Cinema November Screening: The Sword with No Name

Join us at the Korean Cultural Center for a free K-Cinema screening of the 2009 historical action-drama The Sword with No Name! Two screenings on Nov. 8 and 23. Details and RSVP below.

Synopsis
Moo-myoung (Seung-woo Cho) is a Joseon Dynasty bounty hunter at the top of his game. During a mission he encounters a beautiful noble lady, Ja-young (Soo Ae), and falls in love. Years later, Ja-young enters the royal palace as the next queen of Joseon. Moo-myoung's heart still aches, so he becomes the queen's personal guard. When she ascends to power as Korea's famed Empress Myeongseong, Ja-young tries to modernize the dynasty by allying with foreign nations but becomes embroiled in a political power struggle. Moo-myoung, ever her loyal defender, must fend off threats from all sides.

Directed by Yongkyun Kim (2009), The Sword with No Name (불꽃처럼 나비처럼) features a notable cast and is based loosely around actual historical events and characters near the end of the Joseon Dynasty in the late 19th century. In Korean with English subtitles. Watch the theatrical trailer on AsianWiki.com.

Viewer discretion advised for some adult language and sexual scenes.

Doors open at 6 pm for a pre-show reception with Korean refreshments! The film (124 minutes) will begin promptly at 6:30 pm.


RSVP REQUIRED VIA KCC WEBSITE
