About Duelist
Thrilling action, political intrigue, and forbidden romance all light up the screen in this inventive detective story set during the Choson Dynasty! After a six year break from filmmaking, Lee Myung See, director of the seminal Korean action flick Nowhere to Hide, returns to the director's chair once more for the elegant swordsman film Duelist.

Based on a novel, this beautiful period film centers on a tomboyish detective by the name of Nam Sun (Ha Ji Won, from Love So Divine and Phone) who ends up being assigned to investigate a case revolving around some counterfeit coins. Going deep undercover in a variety of diverse disguises, Nam Sun quickly finds herself chasing after a notorious assassin named Sad Eyes (Kang Dong Won, from Too Beautiful to Lie and Romance of Their Own), who just may be involved in the crime she's investigating.

These two warriors from opposite ends of the law end up clashing time and time again, but with each passing encounter, they soon discover that they share a mutual respect and attraction for one another. Will a love affair bloom on the battlefield? While this is a high stakes game of cat and mouse for both of them, it seems that the hunter has clearly fallen for the prey. But is Sad Eyes somehow connected to the Minister of Defense's plan to take over the country? If so, Nam Sun has only one choice, but to fulfill her duty. With an appearance by long-time actor Ahn Sung Ki in a supporting role, Lee Myung See's Duelist is a stylish, visually stunning example of cinematic swordplay at its finest!
Set years ago in the era of the Joseon Dynasty, the story follows a young police officer named Namsoon (Ha Ji-won) who, along with her fellow officers, discovers a counterfeit ring operating out of the area they've been assigned to protect. However, as the criminals aren't just printing up their own money, they also plan to use it to topple the economy and take down the government. As her investigative work continues, Namsoon soon makes the acquaintance of a young man known only as Sad Eyes (Gang Dong-won), for the way that he looks out at you from underneath his hair - he doesn't say much, but he's got that look and that's all it takes to pique Namsoon's interest in him, even if she shouldn't be thinking those thoughts about someone she might have to toss in jail. Of course, Namsoon can't deny her feelings even if the object of her affection belongs behind bars, and it's not long before she's starting to act on her emotions.
