Ryuhei Matsuda (NIGHTMARE DETECTIVE, LVHIFF 2006) plays his adopted grandson and apprentice Tatsuji.

This film is a good chance to see Yu Yamada on the big screen. She can also be seen on the small screen — as Makiko Yasuda (who goes on to become Ginpei’s wife) on the J-drama “The Grand Family” — every Sunday night on KIKU-TV. ‘Bulgolgi’ screens on Saturday, October 27, 2007 at 1PM.
