1623, in a setting where the Joseon Dynasty is in turmoil due to recession and sickness, <War of the Arrows> captures history with a fresh perspective showing the art of archery with vivid action. The film is directed by Kim Han-min, the director of <The Admiral> which still holds the No. 1 spot in the domestic box office in Korea.
<War of the Arrows> tells the story of Nami (Park Hae-il) of the Joseon Dynasty, fighting to save his sister, played by Moon Chae-won, who is taken prisoner by soldiers from the Qing dynasty. Park Hae-il devoted himself to archery and horseback riding to prepare for this movie and filmed almost all the action scenes without a stun double. Ryu Seung-ryong who plays the antagonist also added a sense of realism to the film by playing the head of an elite unit of the Qing dynasty and digesting lines in Manchurian.
