Yeok-rin aka The fatal encounter

This is another great historical movie with an excellent storyboard. King Jeongjo rules on a divided kingdom while Noron family tries to take him down with the help of his grandmother and his general Ku. Two young children, numbers 220 and 77, taken by a brutal slave-master are brought up to become assassins but fate will play a dramatic role for them. The twist and turns actually makes this one quite immersive, despite some of the twist being quite predictable and all. It's really a film about strong characters, great battle scenes and suspense. Korean films are getting better and better through last decade and this is not an exception hopefully.
