A disaster-themed movie has quite often produced in Korean Industry these days. But what makes this movie really interesting was, it's purpose to criticize the Korean Government (President Park Scandal, Sewol Tragedy) as well as the concern of many regarding a nuclear power plant in southern areas which is peril of earthquake.

The movies showed a lil bit of government's incapacity to react on national crisis due to politics and nation's image issues. And this fatal mistakes led to a bigger crisis and loss from their citizen. The pace was fast. We got straight to the main crisis on the first few minutes, but the writer still capable to maintain the depth of each character. There wasn't any flashback scene (almost), unlike the usual Korean Movie's with fast pace plot, but we still able to understand each character's idealism and initial heart.

Pandora showed a good, undisturbing, graphics. There wasn't any action and all the focus was to solve one big crisis in any way feasible. Surprisingly, with this thick and intense plot, Pandora wasn't boring at all. In fact, we were brought to a roller coaster of emotion, right from the very start. A mass production, with the purpose to remind that a big advantage has the same amount of risk within it. Entertaining, as well as educating (who knows that South Korea has 24 nuclear power plant in 9 southern cities?)

That's it the Pandora.
"Don't close your eyes because of fear. Don't cover your ears because of fears. We have opened the Pandora's Box. Although disaster were inside. Wasn't there also hope?"

This is not about never-ending battle with evil army
It is about dream and ideas, and about faith and companionship, about sacrificing those dearly for greater good, about ambitions and loneliness, about giving up, and getting stronger with it.

There is no good and bad in this show. Of course, we would meet some people naturally bad for the show to be interesting. But, most of the time, we were left with deep thought and meticulous action. We totally understand every judgement made by our hero, even though we clearly saw it as a wrong doing. Indeed, reasoning made juicy story and deliver a contented acceptance. And Six Flying Dragons did a hell good job in that area.

It is true that every historical drama has unchanging fact. Major spoiler we anticipated from the very first episode. But still, six flying dragons could manage gave us little surprise here and there. Gave much laugh and let us shed tears in disbelieve. It was a good ride. It really was. Everything was so perfect. Every little thing count into account, and every character, no matter how small and unimportant, giving it best to deliver the painful story between teacher and student.

The story about Yeongjo of Joseon and his late son with all the controversies around them is a legit background for any artwork. This story has been portrayed by many, over and over again, and no one get bored. Sometimes, Yeongjo is the hero and Sado is at fault. And sometimes, we gotta know Sado's best while Yeongjo at dark.

The Throne deliver the history differently. Despite the unchanging fact, the PD made us see what drove both our hero apart. We got to see how much Yeongjo longing of a filial son and decent successor, as well as Sado loneliness and his hope for his father's affection. This movie shows us a brand new side of the history. Where no one's at fault. And the pain lies within their own expectation of each other.

The production team brought the best of the story with an awesome script writing and support the intense story with proper music job. All together make The Throne was so much painful yet satisfying for us. Thus, rewatching The Throne is a big no for me because I'm not sure I would okay if I experience the intense and painful story once again.

Acting-wise, what did you hope when Song Kang Ho, Yoo Ah In, and Moon Geun Yong filled your screen with such emotion in their eyes? Only tears left me. And I'm contented with it.
