Fast-paced historical drama film
27 September 2014 | by KineticSeoulSee all my reviews

This is another movie that takes place during the Joseon Dynasty. However unlike certain Korean dramas that takes on this premises. This actually way more fast-paced. The movie revolves around a King, spies, assassins, treason and love affairs. And for the most part it's actually blended in quite well. The twist and turns actually makes this one quite immersive, despite some of the twist being quite predictable and all. My one main disappointment is how certain characters and story structure builds up and at the end, it just seems to fall short with it's development. In another words, the good build up seemed a bit disappointing, because of the weak ending that just felt a bit abrupt. It's a movie that is worth the attention though.

7.6/10
