Legend has it that before the Japanese army lost their foothold in the Philippines, Prince Tsuneyoshi Takeda and General Tomoyuki Yamashita ordered the construction of underground tunnels that would store their vast fortune of treasure and gold stolen from China and Southeast Asia. This lost gold of World War II eventually became the subject of many conspiracy theories. In an upcoming movie, 80 percent of which was shot in the Philippines, Korean director Kim Bong Han reimagines the legend. The Golden Holiday comes out in South Korea on August 16. A local release date is yet to be announced.
