About This DVD
In 2003, the period blockbuster Once Upon a Time in a Battlefield drew over three million admissions at the box office for its humorous take on Korea's own battle of the three kingdoms - Baekje, Goguryeo, and Shilla - during the 7th century. Eight years later, director Lee Joon Ik (The King and the Clown) advances towards Pyongyang Castle with the equally uproarious sequel Battlefield Heroes. In the first film, the rising kingdom of Shilla aligned with Tang China to attack Baekje in the Battle of Hwangsanbul. This time the target is the even more powerful Goguryeo, but tables turn and alliances shift when the Shilla realize that the Tang are trying to take control of the Korean peninsula.
The game has changed, but the battle mode certainly hasn't as Battlefield Heroes punctuates the storied war with broad satire, everyman sensibilities, and hilariously intricate strategies to win without fighting. Jung Jin Young returns as Shilla's master strategist Kim Yoo Shin, while Lee Moon Shik continues to live by his wits as lucky survivor Thingy. The cast also includes Ryu Seung Ryong as fierce Goguryeo general Nam Geon, Yoon Je Moon as the traitorous Nam Saeng, Sun Woo Sun as brave maiden Gap Sun, and Running Man's Lee Kwang Soo as hot-blooded soldier Mun Di. Hwang Jung Min also reprises his role as the king of Shilla in a cameo appearance.
