With the action comedy Hong Kil-dong’s Descendents, director Yong-ki Jeong (Once Upon a Time) takes on the masked (super) hero genre that has been ignored by South Korea’s film makers for quite some time now. Beom-su Lee plays an inconspicuous high school teacher who follows the trait of his ancestor, the legendary Robin Hood like hero Hong Kil-dong by committing spectacular break-ins at night. His nemesis (Su-ro Kim) is a cold blooded businessman who gains more and more power by bribing politicians. Si-yeong Lee (Ogamdo) acts as eye candy and the potential love interest.

Hong Kil-dong’s Descendents will open on November 26th across South Korea.

Fast forward a couple of years later, and I'm extremely pleased to present Justin's latest project -- an excellent short (especially for film buffs) that has just begun its journey on the film festival circuit and will be shown this weekend at the 12th edition of the Sonoma International Film Festival. Justin Ambrosino's The 8th Samurai will be shown at several film festivals across the U. »
