In 1777, one year since he had taken reign, King Jung Jo bears a perilous palace life with his dedicated court servant, Gap Soo, amidst opposition and threats from those around with political ambitions. Meanwhile, Eul Soo, a member of a secret assassin group, receives orders to kill Jung Jo. Gap Soo, who had also been in the same secret assassin ring as Eul Soo, later confesses to Jung Jo about his dark past and his motive for coming into the palace. To Gap Soo’s surprise, Jung Jo asks Gap Soo when he had given up being an assassin, and then orders him to just leave the palace. However, Gap Soo finds out that there is another assassin besides him and frantically returns to the court, only to discover Eul Soo in combat with Jung Jo.

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 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 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.
