The king's palace guard is composed of thirty six young soldiers, led by military commander Hong-rim (Jo In-sung), who is also the king's lover.

[He kneels on the ground, behind the king who is standing]
Your Majesty. I deserve to die. I was blinded by foolish desires and betrayed and humiliated you.
[He put a special sword in front of himself on the ground, crying]
This is the very sword you granted me. Please take my life with it. I shall seek your forgiveness in death.
[the king turns back and looks at him]
You've given away something more precious than life. What good would it do to take your life, now?

About love. Its nuances, price and forms. Beautiful, powerful and aesthetic exercise. Fight scenes makes with delicate attention and the action as mountain river. Nothing new for a Coreean production. ButA Frozen Flower is interesting not only for colors and recreation of an era. Cntemporan questions are parts of a historical drama and the answers are sword blades. The tyrant is not a gray character. The loyal friend is not the traitor without conscience. The child is seal of crisis. Love is not a white page but a drawing in which two men hunt. The happiness and the sense of their search. In fact, a movie of porcelain. Game of emotions and sensitive description of feelings. The end, not special, is ribbon of a military book about peace essence.
