In the 1700's, Crown Prince Lee Sun (Yoo Seung-Ho) fights against Pyunsoo group. Pyunsoo is an organization that has accumulated power and wealth through privatizing water all over Joseon. Crown Prince Lee Sun becomes a hope for the people who suffer. Ga-Eun is the woman Crown Prince Lee Sun loves and she helps grow as a ruler.

Master of the Mask is like a roller coaster ride, the story takes you up to intensity, then drag you down with regret and suddenly knocks you off to happiness.  To sum things up, the plot is not perfect at all, it has a high and low point. The cinematography is superb for the historical setting and because it's an all-star cast, this show was favored and impossible not to watch.

The finale was tied up neatly and will give you an approving look while witnessing our main lead achieved his dreams and hopes.  Just bear some loopholes for certain episodes, but in the end, you would never regret of watching it.

Verdict: 8/10

 

 

The Admiral: Roaring Currents

12 Battleships against a fleet of 330. One man against all odds. Sounds too good to be true, right? But yes, this movie depicts from one of the greatest naval battles in Korea history which they stand last against the Japanese navy during the Imjin war in the Joseon Dynasty.

The Admiral Yi Sun-sin was a Korean naval commander who was well-respected for his exemplary conduct on and off the battlefield. He’s one of few Admirals in world history who remained undefeated.  In this movie, you will see how he implored some actual strategy to win and how he takes the lead in difficult moments.

I know I was a little bit late to watch this movie, but I’m glad I was able to.  This film is perfection for human perseverance and bravery.  They have an excellent cast, astounding production, and a good tribute to the valiant Koreans.

Verdict: 10/10
