Sung-su Kim, Action, 158 minutes

Musa: The warrior directed by Sung-su Kim's is a big-scale spic shot entirely on location in China. It is 1375 and China is in constant turmoil. Koryo, one of Korea's ancient kingdoms, sends a delegation of diplomats and soldiers as envoys to the new Chinese dynasty in power, Ming. However, the delegation is accused of spying and sent in exile to the desert. Duty and patriotism are reduced to mere burdens as they trudge on east over the vast Chinese continent with the single hope of returns to their beloved home and families. This film was invited several international film festivals including 26th Toronto International Film Festival and Tokyo FILMeX in 2001.
