  • Thrilling action, political intrigue, and forbidden romance all light up the screen in this inventive detective story set back during the Choson Dynasty! After a six year break from filmmaking, Lee Myung See, director of the seminal Korean action flick Nowhere to Hide returns to the director's chair once more for the elegant swordsman film, Duelist. Based on a novel, this beautiful period film centers on a tomboyish detective by the name of Nam Sun (Ha Ji Won, from Damo and Love So Divine) who ends up being assigned to investigate a case revolving around some counterfeit coins. Going deep undercover in a variety of diverse disguises, Nam Sun quickly finds herself chasing after a notorious assassin named "Sad Eyes" (Kang Dong Won, from Too Beautiful to Lie and Romance of Their Own) who may just be involved in the crime she's investigating.

    These two warriors from opposite ends of the law end up clashing time and time again, but with each passing encounter, they soon discover that they share a mutual respect and attraction for one another. Will a love affair bloom on the battlefield? While it's clear that this is a high stakes game of cat and mouse for both of them, it seems that the hunter has fallen for the prey. But is Sad Eyes somehow connected to the Minister of Defense's plan to take over the country? If so, Nam Sun has only one choice, but to fulfill her duty. But can she? With an appearance by longtime actor Ahn Sung Ki in a supporting role, Lee Myung See's Duelist is a stylish, visually stunning example of cinematic swordplay at its finest!
