A Hard Day (2014) star CHO, who will be back in theaters next month with the thriller Bluebeard, plays the eponymous character who is sent to prison as a young man for his role in the murder of an assassin and develops into a Korean independence fighter while behind bars after he witnesses the hardships that Korean people must endure.
