Two dynasties at war. Two men on a mission. Revenge, redemption and a story of family combines with heart-pounding action to make War Of The Arrows the highest-grossing epic in Korean cinema.
1623: the 15th year of King Gwanghaegun's reign. The King's loyal servant and legendary archer, General Choi Pyong-ryang, is framed for treason and executed. His entire household meets the same tragic fate, but his young son and daughter, Nam-yi and Ja-in, escape to the home of their father's longtime friend. The brother and sister take refuge under Kim's wing and are raised as his own. 13 years pass and Quing China carries out a brutal invasion against Joseon, in what will later be known as "second Manchu invasion of Korea."
On the wedding day of Ja-in and Kim Mu-seon's son, Qing troops led by Commander Jiusinta attack, taking the villagers as prisoners, including Ja-in. When Nam-yi returns home after getting injured in battle, he finds his guardian murdered and his sister taken away by the Qing men. Nam-yi chases after the troop in a desperate attempt to save his sister. Name tracks down Ja-in, but faces brutal battles with Jiusinta's best men in order to escape.
