In 1636, the Qing dynasty attacks Joseon. King Injo and his retainers, including Choi Myung-kil and Kim Sang-hun, hide in the mountain fortress city of Namhansanseong. They are isolated from the outside. Meanwhile, Choi Myung-kil insists that they enter into negotiations with the Qing dynasty, but Kim Sang-hun proposes that they keep fighting.
This is a bit slow but I really enjoyed it. You're under attack, do you fight to the death or concede, live and lose your pride? This is the decision the king and his ministers must decide. I thought this was filmed very well, acted very well, written well and the tension throughout the film kept me hooked to the end. It is a bit slow, 20 minutes too long but still very good. 7/10
