Featured Film of the Week: “Poongsan

Poongsan is about a mysterious man (Played by Yoon Kye Sang) who can go back between Seoul (South Korean Capital) and Pyongyang (North Korean Capital) within three hours. He receives a secret request by South Korean government agents asking him to bring over In-oak (Kim Kyu Ri) who is the lover of a high-ranking North Korean defector. On their way back to South Korea, they fall in love with each other. South Korean agents ask a dangerous request. Also, North Korean spies scheme to capture In-Oak in order to execute the high-ranking North Korean defector…

The film is directed by Kim Ki Duk. The film stars Yoon Kye Sang (From G.O.D.) and the beautiful Kim Kyu Ri.

(Here is an interesting fact. The Poongsan dog is a breed of hunting dogs from North Korea. They get their name from the mountainous region where they were first bred and are very rare. In old Korean tales there is a story about a Poongsan dog defeating a Siberian tiger.)
