What's An ALIENOID??

This peculiar question is one Well Go USA is more than happy to answer, as their Korean Scifi Thriller ALIENOID is hitting theaters as we speak. 

In the year 2022, Guard (KIM Woo-bin) and Thunder live on Earth, managing alien prisoners who have been locked up in humans’ brains. One day, a spacecraft appears in the sky over Seoul, and the police detective Moon (SO Ji-sub, “Moon”) witnesses a strange sight…

Meanwhile 630 years earlier during the Goryeo Dynasty, the hapless dosa (Korean tao magician) Muruk (RYU Jun-yeol) and Ean (KIM Tae-ri), the so-called “The Girl Who Shoots Thunder”, each scramble to outwit each other in pursuit of the mystical Divine Blade, for which a huge reward is being offered. Two sorcerers in search of the Divine Blade’s secrets, Madam Black (YUM Jung-ah) and Mr. Blue (JO Woo-jin), as well as the masked Jajang (KIM Eui-sung), also set out on a desperate scramble to obtain the Blade. Meanwhile, a spacecraft emerges from a deep river, emitting light…

Those who pursue alien prisoners locked in human bodies in the year 2022, and the sorcerers who pursue the legendary Divine Blade in the year 1391… When the door of time opens, everything becomes entangled!

Do we have your attention now? Thought so! Prepare yourself to drool all over your keyboard as your brains go into geeky overload... DIG THE TRAILER!!

“I wanted to make a film about aliens, which has been my favorite subject ever since I was a kid. I thought it would be interesting to combine the world of Korean historical fantasy with a science fiction story set in the present,” said Director CHOI. It was five years ago that he conceived of this heterogenous plot that brings together the Goryeo Dynasty and present times. In particular, he conceived of ALIENOID as a two-part sequential story in which the events of Part One and Part Two are organically connected. The Goryeo Dynasty, in which sorcerers compete to attain the Divine Sword, and the modern era, in which alien prisoners are being imprisoned in human bodies… the spectacle of people in different time periods each trying to achieve their goals combines with Director CHOI Dong-hoon’s distinctive rhythmic direction, making for lighthearted comedy and entertainment. In addition, the spectacular action that transcends eras and genres will provide a new cinematic experience that you have never seen before, from extraordinary magical action to sci-fi combat with spaceships, aliens and robots flying over downtown Seoul. ALIENOID, where secrets between characters who seem to have no connection at all are revealed and gathered into a single vanishing point, will open a new horizon for Korean cinema.
