In the Goryeo Empire of the 14th century, followers of Taoism look for a legendary sword that can bend time. While searching for the magical blade, swordsman Mureuk (RYU Jun-yeol) meets the mysterious LEE Ahn (KIM Tae-ri), who is also after the sword. In the present day, Guard (KIM Woo-bin) travels through time in pursuit of an escaped alien trapped in a human body. In the process, he causes a rift in the space-time continuum which opens a portal between the times. The paths of both groups cross in a collision of past and future.
Alienoid is the first film of a two-part series. The movies were shot back-to-back and the second part will be released in 2023. Due to the complexity of the story, CHOI spent two and a half years writing the script.
