Everyone believes

the time of dragons has passed.

But the time of dragons...

... has only just begun.

Every 500 years,

a young woman is born.

A woman who possesses a

spirit power that can turn a serpent...

... into the mightiest dragon of all.

A good serpent will use this

mighty power to protect the universe.

An evil serpent

will use the mighty power...

... to destroy the world.

Now is the time

for the spirit to be awakened.

Now is the time

for destiny to unfold.

- This is not your land today.

- Hey, hey.

- You have awakened them.

- Come on.

The prophecy proved true.

Hide all your pretty things.

This is the end.

- The beast has risen.

- Step aside.

This whole city's damned.

The beast has awakened.

The beast has risen.

- Ethan Kendrick. CGNN.

- No.

How would you explain the situation?

This is how I explain this.

Do yourself a favor.

Get yourself back beyond the barrier.


- No press back here.

- Go.

I've covered some crazy stories.

And there's something about this.

I've seen this before.

The scale.

This has something to do with me.

What is it?

It's that old story Jack told me.



Remember, I said no touching.

I know.

My boy has a curious imagination.

Surest sign of intelligence

is a curious mind.

So where were we?

Now this, it's been in my family

for generations.

It has a lot of sentimental value

attached to it.

Unfortunately, sentimental value

is all it's really worth.

Certainly it must

be worth something.

Ten dollars.

That's the best I can offer.

Come on, it'll fetch at least 150.

It's over 100 years old.

I hate to disappoint you...

...but these things

have been turning up a lot lately.

Come on. I didn't come down here

for a lousy...

Ethan, didn't I tell you...?

What, what, what?

A hundred dollars too much?

- Something I said?

- It's my heart.

- Should I call an ambulance?

- No. No ambulance. No doctor.

Go to the herb shop

on Wilshire and Mariposa.

Tell them it's for me.

They'll know what to do. Hurry.

I'll give you 1000 for that dagger.

Ethan! Ethan!

What happened?

Watch him. Watch him.

I'll be... I'll be right back.

Finally. I found you.

Do you realize

what you've just seen?

The light from inside the box, sir?

What you've just seen...

...was the scale of the lmoogi itself.

And the light?

That was the light from heaven.

The light from heaven? lmoogi?

Sit down.

Imoogi. It is a creature

from a Korean legend...

...which turns into a dragon.

Long ago, there lived great serpents

called lmoogies.

They lived in the heavens above

with their legions of followers.

Every 500 years, one lmoogi...

...was rewarded for its good deeds...

...with a chance to become

a celestial dragon.

In order to become

a celestial dragon...

...the lmoogi needed to

receive from heaven...

...the gift of the Yuh Yi Joo.

It is the strength, the power

of the Yuh Yi Joo...

...that allows an lmoogi

to transform into a dragon.

Only, there was among

the great serpents an evil one.

Buraki. He coveted Yuh Yi Joo.

His followers designed

to possess it...

...and this heaven could not allow.

It was decided to hide away

the Yuh Yi Joo on Earth.

All heaven could do

was to send down its best warriors...

... Haram and his master, Bochun...

... to protect Yuh Yi Joo at all costs...

... from the evil Buraki.

Unfortunately, the evil Buraki...

... also knew where to find

Yuh Yi Joo.

What are you talking about?

Listen carefully.

My lord.

What's wrong?

She's lost consciousness.

At last, the time has come.

My love...

Born to the wife of Lord Yun

in Korea.

My love.

My lord... it's a girl.

Her shoulder.

Yuh Yi Joo would become

completely formed...

... when the girl reached

the age of 20 years.

At that point, any Imoogi

that possessed it...

... could transform into a dragon.

Please have a seat.

Honorable one, what brings you here

at this late hour?

My lord, please listen.

Your child...

She will be sacrificed to lmoogi.

That is heaven's will.

How could you say such things?

My wife has just died while giving birth

to my child.

Why do you speak this nonsense?

Your child...

...was born with the Yuh Yi Joo which

heaven intended for the Good lmoogi.

The dark lmoogi, the evil Buraki...

...has defied the will of heaven...

...and wants what rightfully belongs

to our Good lmoogi.

What are you talking about?

If the dark lmoogi gets hold

of the Yuh Yi Joo...

...an unimaginable disaster will befall

this entire village.

And how can you be sure?

The child bears the mark

of the Red Dragon.

How did you know?

For twenty years,

Bochun raised baby girl Narin...

... into a beautiful woman and trained

Haram to be a warrior from heaven.

And it should surprise no one that...

...one day Haram

fell in love with Narin.

And Narin too gradually discovered

her love for Haram.

Very good!

Soon you'll be able to beat me.

You've taught me well.


...we don't have much time left.

They will be here soon.

Yes, I know.

Come, there is someone

you must meet.

Haram, bow before the Good lmoogi.

This is the lmoogi that has been

chosen by heaven.

It has to unite with the Yuh Yi Joo

and ascend to heaven.

That is the only way we humans...

...can remain a part of

the great cycle of the world.

Honorable one, do not worry.

The Yuh Yi Joo will be formed inside

Narin's body the day she turns 20.
