The Admiral: Roaring Currents

I really, really, really … Really wanted to like this movie. It’s Yi Sun-Sin (pronounced Ee Soon-Sheen), my favourite Korean historical personage. He was absolutely amazing – the one bright point in an otherwise disastrous period (the Imjin War when … Continue reading
