Meanwhile, Queen Jungsoon (Han Ji-Min) and the vassals from Noron plot to assassinate King Jeongjo.

Outside of the palace, Eul-Soo (Cho Jung-Seok) was raised as an elite assassin by Gwang-Bae (Cho Jae-Hyun). Gwang-Bae then orders Eul-Soo to kill King Jeongjo otherwise his love Wol-Hye (Jung Eun-Chae) will be killed.

Aj It is more Jung Jae Young's film than Hyun Bin's--both wonderful actors of course, with Hyun Bin as a touching, heroic King; but Jae Young gives a searing performance as the clerk with a secret. Strong cast (Han Ji Min is chilling; Cho Jung Seok heartbreaking), tight direction, very dark but effective and gripping story.

Davia I stopped watching this after 45 minutes. The characters were not able to pull me into the story mainly I think because of the way this was directed. The emphasis of the director seemed to be more on making an artistic movie than telling a story. The same with the violence which seemed to be emphasized for the same reasons. I was disappointed as I was looking forward to seeing this.

Nick Naslac Actually Queen Jungsoon is Jeongjo’s step grandmother. She's the second wife of Yeongjo, Jeongjo’s grandfather, after the death of Yeongjo’s first wife who adopted Prince Sado as her own son (Sado was born of royal concubine while the queen is childless - history said Sado loved her as his own mother that her death gave deep blows to his mental condition).

mia88 Han Ji Min as queen jungsoon is the step mother of king jeongjo ( Hyun Bin ). She had plotted against his succession to the throne and had attempted to have him killed. Hope the English subs do justice to this movie

mkl0 LOVED, LOVED, LOVED IT!!!! Excellent movie. Full of action, betrayal, friendship, love (not necessary the romantic type, but I was completely fine with that), and power struggles. I love you Hyun Bin and Han Ji-Min!!!

Nikkie Oh please, please I just can't wait to see Hyun Bin in action. Missing you so much. I know your work is demanding, but please don't keep us waiting too long for your next project.


Faithful Fan.....
