Korea Movie - Jeon Woo Chi : The Taoist Wizard - 전우치

= Description =

Artist Name(s) : Kang Dong Won, Kim Yoon Seok, Lim Soo Jung, Yeom Jung Ah, Baek Yoon Shik, Yu Hae Jin
Director : Choi Dong Hun 
Ghostbusters gets a unique Korean twist with the fantasy action blockbuster Jeon Woo Chi: The Taoist Wizard. Writer-director Choi Dong Hun departs from his popular heist films Tazza: The High Rollers and The Big Swindle for this big-budget, special effects-filled action romp that was equally popular with the Korean audience, earning over six million admissions over the 2009 Christmas period. The star-studded film featuring Kang Dong Won, Lim Soo Jung (Happiness, A Tale of Two Sisters), award-winning actor Kim Yoon Seok (The Chaser), and Yu Hae Jin (Truck) has proven to be so popular that a spin-off comic book series is already in the works.
Based on a Korean folktale, Jeon Woo Chi stars Kang Dong Won, who has quickly become one of Chungmuro's biggest stars with this film and Secret Reunion, as the titular character, a mischievous magician in the Joseon era. Framed as his master's murderer, Jeon and his dog are imprisoned inside a scroll by three wizards until 2009, when he is freed by the wizards to battle evil goblins in the big city. The trouble is that Jeon is more enthusiastic about his new home and womanizing than his appointed assignment.
