skinz, *I* had not forgotten this thread. i hope you will continue.
Well I was gonna stop but with popular demands (actually just Luv but one is enough for me )
The Fall Of Yi Ui Min The Emperor Myong Jong, ultimately, became tired of Yi Ui min’s antics.
After the scandal of Ui Min son being involved with the rebellious shilla army, Choi Choong Hon got his break and began to create distrust against Ui Min in the royal court. He stated that the scandal proved Ui Min’s real intentions and needed to be stopped in order for the empire to survive. So, the emperor ordered the elimination of dictator Yi Ui Min.
After years of ruling both the court and the military, Ui Min decided that he wasn’t accomplishing anything with his new powers. So, Ui Min had a change of heart and vowed to return to his original cause (to save the people and bring back the Shilla empire) Ui Min departed for Mt. Mita with his fellow men Brue and General Choi. Choi Choong Hon got word of their movements and sent his brother, Choong Su ,
his nephew and the imperial army to capture Ui Min. At Mt. Mita, General Choi decided to look for remaining Shilla soldiers to fight alongside Ui Min again. After tough negotiation, the soldiers decided to start anew with Ui Min. Ui Min began praying for the success of his new agenda. While praying, the imperial army came in contact with Brue and fighting broke out. Fighting for his life, Brue managed to escape and warn Ui Min of the surprise assault. Both men charged at the army head on and clashes of warriors began. In the middle of combat, Brue spotted incoming axes aimed at Ui Min and jumped to intercept the blow. Brue got hit twice and died in Ui Min’s arms. Ui Min, shocked by the death, of Brue, went ballistic and proclaimed the death of all the imperial soldiers. Out numbered by a large margin, Ui Min continued to hang on. Just when it was looking grim, General Choi and the former Shilla army stormed to the rescue. However, the rescue was short-lived as General Choi got stabbed by Yak Jin spear and died.
Ui Min strength couldn’t hold up much longer and got tied with ropes by the army.
Choi Choong Hon arrived and claimed Ui Min’s rule is over and he should kill himself.
Ui Min looked at the sword and stated,” If you want to rule the world than kill me yourself.” Choi asked for any last word and Ui Min confessed that he should have kept true to his plan from the beginning. With one swoop, Choi Choong Hon beheaded Yi Ui Min’s head off.
The end of the Yi Ui Min era became final
Now we enter the complex rise of Choi Choong Hon.
THE ONLY WAY TO DEFEAT TERRORISM IS TO SEND IN MAN-EATING ROBOTS, BUSH LETS GET STARTED ON THIS NOW

Once again, you've done a masterful job with this thread Skinz. Episode -127- was a wonderfully climactic episode. He must have killed 100 soldiers before coming to his unfortunate end. No one should place anyone above the Archfiend on a list of AOW's greatest combatants. He is the measuring stick for all of the warriors who appeared on the show.
Having digested it now, I will say that the two final Yi Ui-Bang episodes are still the most compelling drama that AOW has to offer (for my tastes anyway). Lee Duk Hwa was amazing in drawing the audience's sympathy for such a hard character, but Suh In Suk is one of finest actors to ever appear on film!

I agree. Choi Bu was a magnetic character in his quiet confident loyalty to the Archfiend. The entire assault on the Archfiend, Choi Bu, Brue and the others was formulated out of fear. Not one warrior of the Woobong clan would have gone up against Brue or General Choi, much less the mighty Yi Ui-Min.
