Pulgasari 1985 DVD North Korean Kaiju Movie Bulgasari:

Pulgasari (Korean: Bulgasari) is a 1985 North Korean horror-action kaiju film directed by Shin Sang-ok. It stars Chang Son Hui and Pak Sung Ho and features special effects by Duk Ho Kim, supervised by Teruyoshi Nakano. The film centers around the legend of the Bulgasari and is based on the lost 1962 film from South Korea of the same name. The Film was never officially released in most parts of the world.

Director Shin had been kidnapped in 1978 by North Korean intelligence on the orders of Kim Jong Il, son of the then-ruling Kim Il Sung, and was coerced into making several films as a director, with Pulgasari being the last before he and his wife, actress Choi Eun-hee, escaped to the United States.

In feudal Korea, during the Goryeo Dynasty, a king controls the land with an iron fist, subjecting the peasantry to misery and starvation. An old blacksmith who was sent to prison for defending his people creates a tiny figurine of a monster by making a doll of rice and before dying asks the gods of earth and sky to make his creation a living creature that protects the rebels and the oppressed. When the figurine comes into contact with the blood of the blacksmith's daughter, the creature springs to life, becoming a giant metal-eating monster whom the blacksmith's daughter names Pulgasari, which is the name of the mythical monster her father used to mention as an eater of iron and steel. Pulgasari now shares a special bond with the blacksmith's daughter, and after he starts eating some of the farmer's tools, becomes a giant and powerful figure.
