ACF 268: General's Son II at The Korea Society this Thursday, April 16th, 2009

The General's Son II / 장군의 아들II
Director: Im Kwon-taek
Starring: Lee Ill-jae, Park Sang-min, Shin Hyeon-joon and Song Chae-hwan
Korea, 1991, 103 min.

The Korea Society's Classic Movie Night series When Japan Ruled Korea: Movies Set in the Colonial Era continues with this screening this coming Thursday, April 16th, 2009 at 6:30 PM. (Due to unforseen circumstances, the originally planned selection, Death Song, proved unavailable to be screened, so The General"s Son II has been chosen to replace it.)

After the remarkable success of The General's Son, director Im Kwon-taek returned a year later with this action–packed sequel. Park Sang-min reprises his role as Kim Doo-han, the son of a legendary general struggling to keep the yakuza out of a Seoul neighborhood. With his band of fighters still reeling from its last encounter with the Japanese thugs, Doo–han struggles to unite the city's fractious Korean gangs into a force capable of defeating his old enemy, yakuza boss Hayashi.

Classic Movie Night films are screened at The Korea Society in midtown Manhattan (950 Third Avenue, at 57th Street, 8th Floor.)

Tickets: $10.00
