Did you know that “Ong Bak” director Prachya Pinkaew has a South Korean action movie set for release this year? Well, he does, and it features “Chocolate” and “Raging Phoenix” star Jija Yanin in a prominent role. However, instead of focusing on Muay Thai, the film has its feet grounded firmly in the world of Taekwondo. Below you’ll find the latest poster for the upcoming action extravaganza, which should arrive in theaters on May 19th. That date, as always, is subject to change.
Before proceeding, check out this roughly-translated synopsis:
