I saw the first part to this movie about 2 years ago back in Korea. In Asia, it came out in two parts; unfortunately, I was never around to be able to see the second one. 😦
Basically the story is based off of China during its three kingdom era. Back then, I don’t think Korea was its own country quite yet … or it itself was also divided into three countries. Gosh, Asia’s history is so old and so enriching, you don’t know where to start when it comes to learning about it!! It’s also really tough to keep up with when you’re trying to learn about it in middle school. 😛
Anyhoo, this American version actually looks really good!! I swear, the Chinese historical films really outdo themselves. No wonder Korea doesn’t have leeway when it comes to making historical movies. China has already claimed that ticket.
