Korea's biggest film of 2008, acclaimed kimchi western The Good, The Bad, The Weird comes to Blu-ray with sky-high anticipation and buzz. A Bittersweet Life director Kim Ji Woon's wildly entertaining remake of the Sergio Leone classic The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly transplants the rollicking tale of gun-slinging anti-heroes to the Wild East, with tour de force performances from three of Korea's finest leading men. Forming the unbeatable title trio, Jung Woo Sung (A Moment To Remember) plays the relentless bounty hunter, Lee Byung Hun (A Bittersweet Life) takes on his first villain role as the stylishly menacing gangster, and award-winning actor Song Kang Ho (The Host) is all manic charisma as the eccentric bandit. Premiering at the 61st Cannes Film Festival, The Good, The Bad, The Weird unfolds an over-the-top adventure on the vast desert terrain of 1930s Manchuria, complete with horseback chases, three-way shootouts, train robberies, and action spectacle of giddy proportions.
With their homeland under Japanese occupation, many Koreans flee to Manchuria in the 1930s to make a fast living in no-man's land, including notorious train bandit Dae Goo (Song Kang Ho), the Weird. While pulling a train heist, Dae Goo swipes a treasure map from a Japanese official. Ruthless gangster Chang Yi (Lee Byung Hun), the Bad, is also after the map, and bounty hunter Do Won (Jung Woo Sung), the Good, is after Chang Yi. Dae Goo manages to escape the ensuing train shootout and hightail it with the map, but both Chang Yi and Do Won are in hot pursuit, not to mention the Japanese army and rival bandits.
