September 22nd baby, mark your calendars for some Kim Nam Gil level ass kicking to come! Not to the viewers but to the evil baddies in the upcoming Netflix period action drama Song of the Bandits, that makes for a more rip roaring version of Mr. Sunshine. While the poster above harkens back to the now classic Joseon Gunman, the teaser trailer below is all patriotic undertones crossed with swashbuckling derring do as Kim Nam Gil leads a band of merry thieves to wreak havoc on the occupying Japanese forces and maybe make a little money on the side. With this airing on Netflix it will also provide a broader audience view of the complexities of the early 1900’s in East Asia with Japan, then Republic of Korea, and also China all trying to co-exist and one up each other.
