Films in Daejeon: The Good, the Bad, the Weird / 좋은 놈, 나쁜 놈, 이상한 놈 [Korea]

With the Korean Peninsula under Japanese rule in 1930s, many Koreans flock to Manchuria for refuge. Some become bandits, some train robbers and yet others bounty hunters. While the Weird [Song Kang-ho (송강호)], a notorious train robber, is stealing from a Japanese train crossing the Manchurian plains, he discovers a treasure map. But the map is also sought after by the Bad ]Lee Byeong-Heon (이병헌) ], a merciless gang leader. Coincidentally, the Good [Jeong Woo-seong (정우성)], a bounty hunter, is on the train, and he is after the Bad. The three engage in a spectacular chase with the Japanese Army, the Korean independence fighters, and the Chinese bandits all looking to get their hands on the prized map.
