“Memories of the Sword,” a long-awaited period martial arts film, will be released on Aug. 13, its distributor Lotte Entertainment has confirmed.

The film’s main poster, unveiled Tuesday, shows the three main actors -- Lee Byung-hun, Jun Do-yeon and Kim Go-eun -- drawing swords against each other.

Set in the ancient Goryeo Kingdom, where it is said that even a low swordsman could rise to be king, Lee’s character Yoo-baek clawed his way up the ranks to take the supreme power of Goryeo’s military regime, in course of which he betrayed Woll-so, played by Jun Do-yeon, with whom he had once shared a common purpose to reform the world.

Both Yoo-baek and Woll-so are hunted down by orphan Hong-ee, played by Kim Go-eun, who is set on avenging her parents’ death.

K-pop group 2PM’s Junho is a supporting actor in the film.
