Plot: Choson Dynasty period, past in 1509. Jeong Woochi is a Taoist master's talanted student, wag and prankster. He is not looking for a true Tao, instead he just learned a few magic tricks and dreaming of fame, power and other wordy pleasures. At every his chance, he gets out of the monastery to search for ancient artifacts along with his trusty dog, Chorangyi. Once, he got a master's part of Golden Pipe - a musical instrument with magic power to control goblins. Hwadam - a mighty wizard turned into goblin, who hunting hard to get the whole Golden Pipe, sealed Woochi in a magic painting along with his part of the pipe.

Jeon Woo Chi: The Taoist Wizard
(overall rating: 3.2 out of 5 based on 2 reviews)
Flicks.co.nz, ин James Croot - 3/5 source: http://www.flicks.co.nz/movie/woochi/
«Nuttier than Night Watch, this tale of goblins, Gods and prophecies at times requires close scrutiny of the subtitles to work out just exactly what is going on. It doesn't help that the soundtrack sounds a little detached and disjointed. There's an almost Lynchian switch of location and costuming part way through (turning the story into something like a cross between Enchanted and Howard the Duck) and the whole thing feels 20 minutes too long.»
