Although the “kimchi Western” The Good, the Bad, the Weird already had its international screening at Cannes Film Festival earlier this year (to general praise), its official Korean release doesn’t come until later this month. The cast was on hand at the press conference for the film on July 7 in Seoul: Jung Woo-sung (the good), Lee Byung-heon (the bad), and Song Kang-ho (the weird).
The film is helmed by acclaimed director Kim Jee-woon, who showed his talent for creating riveting drama and beautiful, atmospheric cinematography in prior films A Tale of Two Sisters and A Bittersweet Life, and is set in 1930s Manchuria.
The Good, the Bad, the Weird opens in Korean theaters on July 17; take a look at the preview below:
