Trailer to The Destined King Short Film


We were contacted by director Kiyun Sung about his upcoming short film entitled 운명의 왕: The Destined King.

It’s the first Korean fusion-historical short film to have been shot entirely in the United States. It falls in the action/adventure genre, with the action choreography one by award-winning choreographer, Joey Min.

The film received an Honorable Mention in the Best Action/Adventure Category in the Asians on Film Festival Summer Quarter 2015, and recently received the ‘Best Short Film’ Award in the Urban Action Showcase!


Plot: Follow the story of the veteran warrior, Yushin (Hugh Cha), as he flees from the carnage of political chaos with an infant born with the destiny of a King. However, he must first confront his former student, Sanggun (Christopher Kim), who will go to any length to ensure that the throne is his and his alone.

Directed by: Kiyun Sung (성기윤)

Starring: Hugh Cha (차형진), Christopher Kim (김영), Elly Han (한지혜), and Mihee Choe (최미희)

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone.
