Coming from King and the Clown director Lee Jun-ik, the new film Like the Moon Escaping From Clouds has been drawing buzz for a while now. The production released a new teaser trailer on March 4, which largely features two of its four main actors facing off against each other: Hwang Jung-min as a blind swordsman and Cha Seung-won as a leader of rebellious forces fighting to overturn the strict social order. Cha declares, “Let’s wipe out this rotten world!” and Hwang says, “A swordsman must hide behind his blade.”
The film is set amidst the Japanese invasion of Joseon Korea in 1592, and Han Ji-hye and Baek Sung-hyun (looking remarkably like a young Jung Woo-sung, no?) also star. The movie is planning to release later this year.
Hm, I wonder if the director feels like Chuno stole his thunder. No doubt the stories are completely different, and even the tone (and with such a lineup, I’m going to expect fantastic acting here) — it’s just that the visual splendor of an artistic action sageuk like this is not quite as fresh with Chuno in our recent memories.
