Sorry, I caught on late as well. Just watched the teaser ;D, and my blood is about 5 degrees warmer than it was a few minutes ago. Of course my skin is colder... goose bumps and all that. Know what I mean.
I know I'm late but just saw the Yi soon shin trailer and I'm shocked how they could surpass AOW so fast. The battle sequences look 1000 times better than AOW. Hopefully they bring this over with subtitles and if they don't then its time for me to take a korean class ASAP.
To the velvet ink brush, you seem to be a great fan of Yi soon shin, do you know if they have any other movies or drama towards him? This is the first time I heard of the guy and if the story is true about winning 23 out of 23 battles, I'm suprised he isn't recognized or talked about outside korea.
He is well known in militray science field. British royal naval academy also teach the cadets about his strategy. In past, most of researches on him has been done by Japanese scholars. He isn't recognized well to the world because was born in a small Aisan country.
He was a great inventor and writer as well as a great startegist. He invented the turtle Ship(an ironclad warship shaped like a turtle) and found a different way to produce gunpowder that is almost the same way used during the 1st World War.
His diary is a record for the war but is also highly appreciated for its vivid description and literary value.
