The Sword With No Name (korean movie)

Mu Myeong (Cho Seung-Woo) is a Joseon dynasty headhunter who meets and falls in love with lady Ja Yeong (Su-Ae) who will become the future Empress Myseongseong. A few years later, Ja Yeong enters the royal palace to marry King Gojong. Mu Myeong still having feelings for Ja Yeong and in an attempt to get closer to her becomes her personal body guard. Ja Yeong, now as the Queen of Joseon, becomes involved in a power struggle with Russia and Japan who are attempting to colonize Korea. Furthermore, King Gojong's father (Cheon Ho-Jin), who wields true power in Joseon, works with the foreign interests which causes Ja Yeong to stand up to him and the foreign diplomats. The king's father then gives his implicit approval for the Japanese to assassinate Queen Je Yeong. Mu Myeong must now fend off these threats to protect the woman he loves.
Loved Mu Myeong! He surprised me with his character. Loved the pure love he had for Ja Yeong and his cuteness. Also loved Ja Yeong for being so strong and determined. The story was ok for me, the cast brought it out perfectly though. Despite the tragedy, (believe me, i really don't like tragedies) i still loved it, including the ending. The action scenes were especially amazing. It was just like watching a 3d video game fight, kind of like final fantasy if you know what i mean. rpg style. hehehe watched it on dramacrazy. enjoy!!!
