Time is A.D. 927, when Georan invaders have conquered the ancient Korean capital of Balhae and set up a new country, Dongran Guk. The leaders of Balhae desperately need a royal figure to reunite their nation. They find a prince, the previously exiled Dae Jeong Hyeon, who's hiding out under the name So Sam. The leaders dispatch a peerless swordswoman, Yeon So Ha, to protect So Sam before Georan's Killer Blade Army, commanded by Gun Hwa Pyeong, find him first. Initially, he sends his deputy, Mae Yeong Ok, to handle the situation: She wants to become the greatest swordswoman of the age and knows she must first kill Yeon. Edit Translation

This was the first historical/periodic k-movie I'd watched and it created a significant impression in my mind. Here's my review of the movie:

Story: A straight forward and simple story - a nation's in crisis, they need a king, but assasins have been killing off all potential candidates until there was only one possible candidate left: an exiled prince. A fighter was sent to search and protect the exiled prince. Excellent fighting scenes followed. There was a budding romance between the prince and his protector and the unrequitted love between a vassal and her lord/leader. All these come together to form a solid storyline for a movie.

Acting/Cast: Very convincing, excellent fighting scenes and good script. What can I say: I am drawn into the world of war, assassins and martial arts by the cast.

Music: Not much to comment there. The music suited each scene but because most of them are instrumental with either sombre mood or fight mood, the music did not stand out in this movie.

Rewatch value: An excellent and quick 1 hour plus entertainment that you can rewatch whenever you feel bored. I enjoy watching the fighting scenes. They were well choreographed.

Overall: Highly recommended!! It is truly a gem that was not given its due recognition!!

!Fantastic! I really enjoyed this film, the scenes were breath-taking, the acting was great and the fight scenes were amazing. I recommend this film to anyone who enjoys martial arts! There (is) a gore factor to this film but I thought the way they established those scenes was quite well done. This movie was very enjoyable I will definitely rewatch this one! :)
