Things get totally epic in the brand new blockbuster, The Roaring Currents (a.k.a. The Admiral: Roaring Currents), which tells the story of Korea’s most astonishing military victory by the highly revered strategist, Admiral Yi Sunshin (Choi Min-Sik). With echoes of 300’s underdog story, in the midst of 1597’s Battle of Myeongryang, Yi Sunshin forms a devious yet brilliant plan that will lure over 300 Japanese ships into a deadly trap, where his tiny fleet of just 13 battleships hopes to turn the tides of war. Packed with suspense and intrigue, this mega-budget action spectacle is the perfect wrap up to Korean Movie Night's EPIC ACTION series and the summer.

The film has done fantastic business in its theatrical runs both in South Korea and the U.S. A big turnout is expected for Tuesday's free screening, and it's likely that many would-be viewers will sadly have to be turned away. To make sure you're not one of them, I suggest you arrive super-early.
