Hong Gil Dong, Korea's own (older) version of Robin Hood, is a famous folk hero of the Joseon era who stole from the rich and gave to the poor. His legacy lives on in this action comedy The Righteous Thief (a.k.a. Descendants of Hong Gil Dong)! Directed by Jeong Yong Ki (Marrying the Mafia III), Descendants of Hong Gil Dong updates Hong's rogue adventures to the modern day in an entertaining mix of Bond action and slapstick comedy. Fun and laughs are just about guaranteed with popular leading man Lee Bum Soo (Lifting King Kong) facing off against two equally idiosyncratic actors, Kim Su Ro (Our School E.T.) and Sung Dong Il (Take Off).
By day, the Hongs are the perfect next-door family. Moo Hyuk (Lee Bum Soo) is a high school music teacher and his younger brother Chan Hyuk (Jang Ki Beom) is a happy-go-lucky student, both lovingly raised by model parents (Park In Hwan and Kim Ja OK). By night, however, their true calling is revealed - stealing. As the 18th generation descendant of Hong Gil Dong, Moo Hyuk is equipped with a full arsenal of combat and lock-picking skills to infiltrate the cash coffers of corrupt tycoons like flashy nemesis Lee Jung Min (Kim Su Ro). The Hong family business is in danger of being exposed when Moo Hyuk decides to propose to his girlfriend Yeon Hwa (Lee Si Young, Five Senses of Eros), whose brother (Sung Dong Il) is a prosecutor.
With great and endless cameos from great people like Lee Jung Min and Kang Gi Beom, terrific Seoul landmarks, endless hilarious jokes, The Righteous Thief is the perfect comedy that is one of the best movies of all time. The diamond heist scene is unforgettable and the scene that will always get me down on the floor in tears is where they go to the gift shoppe, Jung's line of "How much for your women?!" was just too priceless! You really have to see this movie, I guarantee you, you will die of laughter.
