Hong Kil-Dong is apparently an actual legendary figure, sort of a Korean Robin Hood character. In this epic version of the tale, the illegitimate son of a nobleman defends peasants from greedy rulers, confounds local bandits, and struggles for permission to marry his tasty upper-crust sweetheart despite their vast societal differences. Then ninjas arrive, pillage the countryside, loot the royal treasury, and kidnap the local girls, intending to take them back to Japan for lascivious purposes. Probably sounded like a great idea, on paper, maybe if they hadn’t messed with Hong Kil-Dong’s best girl… If you have a hat fetish, you will definitely enjoy the vast array of snappy lids in this film.
