The film Hansan: Rising Dragon is the second film in a trilogy in which director KIM Han-min depicts historical battles of Admiral YI Sun-sin.

However, the Korean military forces are in crisis. To win the battle, YI Sun-sin uses a special ship with a dragon head on the front. Will he be able to prevent the invasion?
Following the huge success of The Admiral: Roaring Currents (2014), the highest-grossing film in Korea, director KIM Han-min returns to the big screen with another historical battle and once again manages to wow viewers with a thrilling battle on the water.
