“The Restless” is set in ancient Korea, where demon slayer Yi Gwak (Woo-sung Jung) finds life difficult. In a series of flashbacks, we learn that Yi Gwak was once living an idyllic existence with the love of his life, Yon-hwa (Tae-hee Kim), before accusations of supernatural happenings dooms the poor girl. Despondent, a lovelorn Yi Gwak is left to fend for himself (looking very homeless doing it, I might add) when Ban-chu (Jun-ho Heo), the leader of the empire’s elite Demon Slayers runs across him. Sensing a bond with the younger man, Ban-chu recruits Yi Gwak, who soon rises to second-in-command of the Demon Slayers. Alas, Ban-chu is harboring a secret grudge against the ruling class, which ends with Ban-chu and the rest of the Demon Slayers slaughtered in an attempted uprising.
