Duellist + Lee Myung-se Q&A

The KCC’s Lee Myung-se month comes to an end on Thursday 26 January with a Q&A with the director himself after a screening of The Duellist. Note that to accommodate extra people, the screening is at the Apollo – and needs to be booked via the Apollo box office rather than the KCC reception. Note also the 6:30pm advertised screening time.

Expect lots of lovely visuals.

In the late Chosun dynasty, counterfeits were circulating around. Detective Ahn of Left Security Station and a passionate newcomer, Nam-sun try to trace the source of the counterfeiting. They chase the Secretary of National Security and his man ‘Sad Eye’ as suspects. A predestined battle between the best woman detective in Chosun, Nam-sun, and a mysterious assassin ‘Sad Eye’ is unfolded. A magnificent, chivalric film that showcases Lee’s style.
