Vengeance never dies.
Much in the same spirit as the hit film Taegukgi, Kwak Kyung Taek's latest is a big budget blockbuster that seeks to comment on North and South Korean tensions.
In this tense, pulse-pounding adventure, a pirate by the name of Myeong Shin (Jang Dong-kun), a rebellious upstart, defects from North Korea only to find himself turned away by South Korean authorities. Furious at this blatant snub, the fanatically motivated Myeong Shin decides to exact vengeance on South Korea, engaging in a level of terrorism that could very well result in numerous deaths across both Koreas. Myeong Shin's opponent in this high seas adventure is Kang Se Jong (Lee Jeong-jae), an honorable naval officer who'll do whatever it takes to bring Myeong Shin to justice...
