One's ancestors' tomb spot could change one's destiny. Jae-Sang (CHO Seung-Woo), a prodigal geomancer, loses his family while trying to stop the Kim family from conquering Korea by getting their hands on all the propitious tomb spots. 13 years later, Heung-Sun from a fallen royal family comes to Jae-Sang and suggests ousting the Kim family from power. The two men decide to work together, but they soon reach conflict when they learn of a tomb spot that would produce two kings in a family.

Geomancers and Politics in Joseon
23 February 2020 | by brucegydeSee all my reviews

Great movie that hinges on the use of Geomancy to establish future dynasties of the kingdom. The sheer scope of the idea that families vying for power in a country would bury and rebury their ancestors to overthrow the geomantic position of ruling families is a fresh one for Western viewers. This is an element of Feng Shui not fully understood and certainly difficult to prove. But given that traditional Feng Shui correctly measures Radon gas build up in structures, identified the impact of Saturn and Jupiter on our atmosphere, and correctly identified the true North Pole (what we call the South Pole) thousands of years ahead of Western Science - it is certainly not a very well understood science in the West. (Note I am referring here to the real stuff practiced not the mom and pop-culture feel good version where you put a bit of metal in the right part of your house to make it balanced.) One shy of a perfect movie.
