February Movie Watch: the Sageuk Edition

New year, new movies of course! Although there’s not much changes except for changing number in years and age (when you’re old like me LOL), there’s something we can be sure of: new movies in production will come out. I’m ecstatic to see not one. but THREE sageuk movies making it into the list of premiering titles in February 2018: one is the ‘Joseon Sherlock Holmes’ 조선명탐정 Joseon Detective 3; the other one is the much anticipated 흥부 Heungbu; last but not least is the second part of the Korean Confucian ‘mechanics’ series, 궁합 Gunghap.
