The Huntresses – upcoming Korean Female Three Muskateers flick!

The Huntresses

An action comedy filming now in Korea is The Huntresses (조선미녀 삼총사 – Joseonminyeo Samchongsa, which translates to The Joseon Beautiful Three Musketeers) It is a period piece and as you can see from the costume concept art above will have a stylized look.

Set in the Joseon Period, three beautiful musketeers fight against a powerful group who tries to overturn the royal family and gain absolute power. The leader of the Beautiful Three Musketeers is Jin-Ok (Ha Ji-Won), a smart and righteous woman. Hong-Dan (Kang Ye-Won) is the only married woman among the three women. Ga-Bi (Son Ga-In from Brown Eyed Girls) is the youngest among the musketeers and excels at fighting.

Ha Ji-Won’s Jin-Ok builds all sorts of unique weapons and is a master of disguise. Ga-In’s fight before talk character uses those weapons, including a yo-yo that has appeared in some publicity art. Oddly enough, that’s caused some people to freak out. Didn’t they see that episode of The Simpsons with the yo-yos? Kang Ye-Won’s married character is a throwing knife expert who can’t do housework and is the funny one. They are mentored by a character played by Go Chang-Suk, who is described as more comic relief. Their main rival will be played by heartthrob Joo Sang-Wook as Sa Hyun, a warrior with superb martial art skills.

Park Je-Hyun is directing, and filming has just started, thus the lack of real images at this time beyond a social media photo below.

Samchongsa is also what Charlie’s Angels was called in Korea, so you can probably figure out the vibe they are going for from that.
