Korean Trailer: Park Chan-Wook’s “Handmaiden”

Following its announcement as part of the line-up at the Cannes Film Festival yesterday, the first (and unsubtitled) trailer has arrived for Park Chan-Wook’s “The Handmaiden”. Amazon Studios will give the film a U.S. theatrical release but have yet to set a date.

Ha Jung-woo, Kim Min-hee, Jo Jin-woong and Kim Tae-ri star in the film adaptation of the Sarah Waters novel which is set during the Japanese rule of Korea. The action revolves around a handmaid who employs the services of an heiress, con man and pickpocket.
