Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A 17th Century Korean archer embarks on a treacherous mission to save his younger sister after she is kidnapped by Manchurian soldiers on her wedding day. The year is 1636. Ja-in (Moon Chae-Won) and her longtime love Seo-Goon are about to exchange their wedding vows as the armies of the Qing Dynasty begin attacking villages, and abducting Koreans. In the midst of the chaos, Ja-in is swept away. As the fighting intensifies, Ja-in's older brother Nam-Yi (The Host's Park Hae-il}) realizes that the only way he will ever see his sister alive again is to take on the entire Qing Dynasty. Armed with only his bow and arrow, the brave warrior sets out on a mission to reunite his family, or die trying. A sweeping, historical action epic that proved a massive hit in Korea, War of the Arrows received four trophies at the 2011 Daejong Awards.
