As interesting as can be for the subject matter - worth watching
22 May 2020 | by phd_travelSee all my reviews

This feels like a beautifully made docudrama with top actors. No great battles or zombies for excitement. Some conflicts about Buddhism and Confucianism - for those who don't know like me there was a conflict. Song Kang Ho acts gentle and enlightened as he co-operates with a monk and others to create an alphabet for the Korean people so everyone could read and write. Unlike the words in Chinese and Japanese which have to be memorized. How forward thinking.
