The war between vampires and mankind throughout history....?

Ah, movies written by people who never read the thing upon which the movie is supposedly based. And this "bridge" manhwa... is Min-Woo Hyung actually writing it? Or is it a half-assed attempt to explain away the discontinuity between the original and... whatever this is. I mean, I hope it'll be a decent movie on its own merits, but still. Priest In Name Only.

I LOL'd.

I swear, this is definitely a vampire phase.

I prefer it when Buffy was still popular, though.

You mean back when there was still a sense of humor in place?

But there are no vampires in Priest. Zombies, fallen angels, demons, monsters, inquisitors, crusaders - that it has scads of. Is Min-Woo Hyung ever going to finish it?!?

It would be a shame if he does not finish his magnum opus...
Priest is one of those rare manhwa that comes to surface... like Chun-choo... NOW...

Christ. The business model for these types of films is a joke.

Take a mildly-known property, change everything about it so not even fans will pay to see it, cast somewhat known actors, and advertise it as the "well-known critically aclaimed manwha by korean artist etc.etc." and make no money. I don't see the profitability. Oh right, and write up some half-baked story about vampires. I hope Underworld 3 comes out at the same time so this film flops.
