Story: I won’t spoil it, but I think the storyline was done very well. There definitely a lot of flashbacks throughout the movie, but I think they were placed in the movie in a way that made sense, and tied all of the story together. The entire movie does have a dark tone to it, but I found it to be interesting and exciting at times. The action scenes especially, are really read more good.

Acting/Cast: I know majority of the actors and actresses since I’m a long time drama watcher. But honestly, I love the acting of everyone here. Both the good and bad characters were acted out fantastically, you can tell how hard they’ve worked on this movie. Everyone’s acting, their facial expression, and emotions really made me get into the movie.

Music: Mostly instrumentals, but I think it complimented the movie quite well. I barely noticed the soundtrack because it was like a part of the movie, but it was still nicely done.

Rewatch Value: I would definitely, definitely watch this again. There are many amazing things about this movie, such as the acting, the cast, the storyline, the action scenes and so on.

Overall: This is a fantastic movie. I definitely recommend this movie. If you like any of the actors/actress or if you like historical-type films, then you should definitely watch it. Even if you usually don’t, watch it anyway. I think you’ll like what you see.

I started this because of Hyun Bin, I didn't have any expectation of it, I didn't even knew what was all about. But even if I had had the the biggest expectations in the entire universe, this movie would had not disappointed me.

The highlight of the movie was the stunning acting of both main and secundary actors. Hyun Bin portrayed a perfect alone, afraid but brave king who's looking for some read more changes, but he alone was not the only amazing thing. The acting of Han Ji Min as a despicable, evil and young queen was not a joke, I finished Rooftop Prince only a couple of days earlier and I though she was a good actress, now I realize I needed to see more of her to know she was not only good but Great with a big G. The others actors were all at the same level of greatness.

The cast, the action, the story, ect. it made the best historical movie I have ever seen.

Both are historical films, which have interesting storylines. Jo Jung Suk acts in both films, although both characters he plays are vastly different from each other.

    I am actually a bit surprised by this film, I didn't think It would be this good.

    The story of King Jeongjo was well executed with many highlights on the several attempts to assassinate him. I always liked that king's story, the successor of King Yongjo and the son of the unfortunate Crown Prince Sado. He led an interesting ruling period.
    That aside, the film was fast paced and did well at showing the political schemes and the divided opinions. It had its fair share of action but it was rough around the edges. I also didn't appreciate the weak vague conclusion.
    The acting department was pretty good though, Hyun Bin chose his comeback project very well.

    I tried watching it and it was interesting, but the subtitles are awful, if I didn't know some korean it would be unwatchable, and last 40 minutes are without sound.. so there it goes.. I didn't see it till the end. If anybody knows a site with normal sub and sound, please share it :) Thank you :D

    Great movie and a wonderful comeback for Hyun Bin. Being a long time saeguk lover the story was nothing new to me however I appreciated the acting and the directing a lot.

    Just watched it on dramafever.com with English Subs! Amazing movie! I admit I was lost for a while because I still don't know enough about Korean history, but I soon caught up and was up to date when it ended. Everything about this movie was excellent, including the one scene including Hyun Bin doing pushups ;) It's well worth watching! You will enjoy it with plenty of action fights!

    Just the one scene alone where Hyun Bin is doing push ups was enough to sell me on the movie. Just kidding...but barely. Seriously, it's actually a really good movie with lots of character depth and an intriguing storyline.
