Overall, this is definitely a movie worth seeing. Sometimes a picture isn't worth a 1000 words. It's not Hong-lim's fault; he might never have left the king's side had he not been forced to, but once he did, he realized that he was meant to be with a woman.Next
Of course this incites jealousy from multiple quarters, one of them being that of the vice-captain.

I enjoyed reading it.
As it does, it becomes a guilty pleasure. When these are the two leads!! I also agree in that there could have been a lot less sex and a lot more emphasis on the relationship between the king and Hong Lim.
When Hong Lim cuts through a treasured painting of the two of them hunting, the duel becomes serious.
Think from the POV of HL, fucking confusion, yeah. Plus , as anyone knows, "you get laid, you'll have a baby" - so the king expected probably knowing what could HL do that everything will be finished after one...Next
He hears her voice, and with the er, hopefully last effort of a dying man, lifts himself up so that he dies looking at the body of the king.

How quaint and refreshing is that? A single drop of tear as he takes his last breath......
It was the pressure to produce a heir...
