We always try and give a shout out to Korean films coming out in the US and Detective K shouldn't be one to miss. It might have switched it's name too for the US market to the Laborer's Daughter.

Detective K and his loyal sidekicks Seo-pil return in this sequel to the 2011 hit film Detective K: Secret of the Virtuous Wido. When Kim Min, known throughout 18th century Korea as Detective K, stumbles upon a ring of smugglers flooding Korea with counterfeit silver, he feels duty-bound to escape his exile and stop this menace before the Korean economy is shaken to its core. To solve the case, he enters a world of intrigue populated by gun-wielding courtesans and murderous bandits, but what he finds is an even darker mystery when the bodies of young slave girls wash up on the shore. Can Detective K solve the mysteries with his trademark inventiveness and bring the criminals to justice?
