|Cast||Park Joong-hoon, Jung Jin-young, Lee Moon-sik|
The Silla army siding with Tang, gathers 50,000 soldiers under general Kim Yoo-sin to break out in fights and games of human chess against arch-enemy general Kyebaek and his army of 5,000 Baekje soldiers - surprisingly holding out to a tough 4-4 game. The first historical film by maestro Lee Joon-ik that completely changed the image of historical films. He has succeeded in crystallising the war of the Korean peninsula into a drama by portraying it with a comedic taste and animating the complex relations. He breaks the box office records in his next film "King and the Clown".
