Helmed by director Jeong Yoon-cheol whose last film was the drama A Man Who Was Superman (2008) starring Hwang Jung-min and Jun Ji-hyun, Warriors of the Dawn features Lee Jung-jae (Operation Chromite) and Yeo Jin-gu (Hwayi: A Monster Boy, 2013) in the lead roles.

During the Joseon Era, King Seonjo escapes to the Empire of the Great Ming in China as Japanese forces advance on his own kingdom, abandoning all his people. The Crown Prince Gwanghae remains behind to defend the royal palace while beyond the walls a makeshift militia is assembled to expel the unwelcome invaders.

Produced by Realies Pictures (Masquerade, 2012), the film will be distributed by 20th Century Fox and is eyeing a May release.

My name is Panos Kotzathanasis and I am Greek. Being a fan of Asian cinema and especially of Chinese kung fu and Japanese samurai movies since I was a little kid, I cultivated that love during my adolescence, to extend to the whole of SE Asia. Starting from my own blog in Greek, I then moved on to write for some of the major publications in Greece, and in a number of websites dealing with (Asian) cinema, such as Taste of Cinema, Hancinema, EasternKicks, Chinese Policy Institute, and of course, Asian Movie Pulse. in which I still continue to contribute. In the beginning of 2017, I launched my own website, Asian Film Vault, which I merged in 2018 with Asian Movie Pulse, creating the most complete website about the Asian movie industry, as it deals with almost every country from East and South Asia, and definitely all genres.
