Pirates set sail on BD & DVD Jan. 20 – BD Contest


The Pirates – Trailer (Eng Subbed)


THE PIRATES set sail on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Jan. 20 from Well Go USA Entertainment. Set in 1388, this epic tale of the high seas depicts the efforts of several warring factions as they attempt to retrieve the emperor’s royal seal (and the attendant bounty) after it’s literally swallowed by a whale. Joining in the fun under the direction of LEE Seok-hoon (Dancing Queen) are KIM Nam-gil (No Regret), SON Ye-jin (Blood and Ties), YOO Hai-jin (Flu), LEE Kyoung-young (Kundo: Age of the Rampant), KIM Tae-woo (Lady Furious), PARK Chul-min (Spellbound) and Sulli Choi (Fashion King).


On the eve of the founding of the Joseon Dynasty, an unprecedented robbery shocks the nation-in-waiting: a whale has swallowed the Emperor’s Royal Seal and a bounty placed on its retrieval. Now, every infamous gang of thieves, thugs, pirates and government agents take to the seas, battling the elements, creatures of the deep, and each other to possess the mother of all rewards.

THE PIRATES has a runtime of approximately 130 minutes and is not rated.

Courtesy of Well Go USA Entertainment, we have 3 DVD available for their release of THE PIRATES due for release Jan 20

  1. Shadows in the Palace, all the way! I love period films from Korea. There is also an excellent TV show that was set during that period called Joseon X-Files: Secret Investigation Record. It’s basically the American X-Files with detectives in Korea set during the Joseon Dynasty. I hope Well Go picks up more of these movies: The Face Reader, King and The Clown,The Duelist and Blood Rain-they all deserve a North American release.
