Description: Set during the Japanese occupation of Korea in the 1930s, BLUE SWALLOW is an enthusiastic (if surprisingly apolitical) tale of romance and high adventure. Jang Jin-young takes to the skies in this semi-biographical story of Park Kyung-won, a young woman mechanic who joins the army to become a Korean Amelia Earhart. Kyung-won pursues a forbidden romance with a handsome Korean aviator (Kim Joo-hyuk, who starred opposite Jang in the 2003 romantic comedy SINGLES) and goes biplane-to-biplane against Gibe, a Japanese model turned pilot, to see who’ll be top gun. But things go wrong for our lovers as they fall in with anti-Japanese conspirators…The world of the 1930s is lovingly (and impressively) recreated through CGI and set design . Director Yun Jong-chan (who also helmed the 2002 thriller SORUM) worked with Kevin La Rosa (THE FUGITIVE and INDEPENDENCE DAY) to arrange the film?s aerial shots.
