Summary note
Adapted from The tale of Hong Kil Dong, authored by Ho Gyun, based on the folk tale about Hong Kil Dong, a true personality in the early 17th century of Korea. Koreans loved Hong Kil Dong as the British did for Robin Hood, a legendary robber in British history. Although he had been known as a traitor by the rulers, he had gained a legend who had tried to build a Utopia based on universal equality. He led his followers in a fierce struggle against the feudal system. This film revived him as a hero and a forerunner of human rights movement.
