To the Ming China, the aspiring imperial power, Joseon presented an obstacle to territorial expansion. To protect themselves from war, King Sejong develops a secret weapon to defend their territory and take back their land and supremacy. Written by
what this movie depicts is totally bull sh*t. First of all, the costume for the supposedly Ming Dynasty were all wrong. Instead, the costume and image of the Ming warriors and officials are actually that of the Qing Dynasty, which comes maybe 300 hundred years later. Second of all, Korea was never a problem for China during the Ming Dynasty. But rather, the government of the Ming Dynasty was more concerned about the renegade Barbarians from the north or the remainder of the Mongolian descendants in exile. Thirdly, did Korean really invented this weapon. Was this story a depiction of what really might have happened during that time? or just some daydream of Korean supremacy over Chinese? At about early to mid 1400 time frame, again, the Ming Dynasty was more concerned about the exiled Mongolian rather than anybody else. A little history background. Ghengis Khan conquered China for a maybe 100+ years or so, just like he did many other nations. But Ming Dynasty overthrown the Mongolian reign and returned China to the Chinese people. The Manchurian government or dynasty comes after the Ming Dynasty, at about the same time as the classic period or late Baroque period as in classical music history. However, the graphics of this movie is quite decent. For a bull sh*t movie, it is at least well-made bull sh*t. Entertaining at last. Worth a laugh as some sort of nonsense comedy for the history-savvy or culture-savvy Chinese.
