Comments: I watched this because it has Coin Locker Girl Go-eun Kim in it. And Do-yeon Jeon. I'm just going to look the other way as far as Go-eun goes because the film is so bad, so silly, that no one could be good in it. Oh wait, it's about at haircut and chin expert Byung-hun Lee's paygrade ... and he's kind of good in it. Not really, but his face has finally grown some character lines so all the close-ups of him crying looked interesting. There's lots of them. There's a TON of crying in this movie. There's one long, really long shot of Do-yeon Jeon with half her eyeball full of water! She seemed way out place in a lot of this movie. So did Go-eun, for that matter. She's kind of chipper and didn't jibe well with the overall weighty melodrama surrounding her. thanks.

Summary: While the Goryo Dynasty in the medieval Korea, three warriors named Deok-ki, Poong-chun and Seol-rang have led a riot against the king and his foreign allies from Kitan, China. But Deok-ki betrays them, which results in the death of Poong-chun. But Seol-rang is able to escape with Seol-hee, Poong-chun's little daughter, and her sword. 18 years later, Seol-rang got blind but she raised and taught Seol-hee very well. Both feel that the time for revenge is right, but Deok-ki is now one of the most powerful men in the country. All of them know, that spilling blood is the only way of redemption.
