The film also stars JUNG Man-sik (Chronicle of a Blood Merchant), KIM Sang-ho (The Beauty Inside), REN OSUGI (upcoming: Godzilla Resurgence) and feature film newcomers SUNG Yu-bin and JEONG Seok-won.
SYNOPSIS: An ex-sharpshooter for the Kingdom of Korea (CHOI Min-sik, Oldboy) is hunting the country’s last tiger. But Japanese forces and vicious local poachers also seek “The Four-Legged Mountain Lord,” and will stop at nothing to claim their prey.
The film is
presented in widescreen in a 2.40:1 aspect ration preserving
its theatrical format. The picture is just flawless. Not

it is good, a 5.1 Dolby Digital in Korean that provides a good complement
to the picture. It also includes English
and Spanish subtitles.
