  • Overall 8.0
  • Story 8.0
  • Acting/Cast 9.0
  • Music 8.0
  • Rewatch Value 8.5
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.

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.

    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.

      There is any decent stream with English Subs? Coz only find one with not really good subs and don't want to ruin it with bad subs like I did with "the Huntress" :/

      Sadly there is still no subs yet. I still haven't watched The Huntresses because of the bad subs that will ruin the movie for me :(

    The cast is to die for, Jo Jung Suk is every where, i loved him in Shut Up! and his character in King 2 Hearts. When does it come out? Hope Hyun Bin does a drama after this.
