Movie Info

In 1777, one year since he had taken reign, King Jeong-jo bears a perilous palace life with his dedicated court servant, Gap-soo, amidst opposition and threats from those around with political ambitions. Meanwhile, Eul-soo, a member of a secret assassin group, receives orders to kill Jeong-jo. Gap-soo, who had also been in the same secret assassin ring as Eul-soo, later confesses to Jeong-jo about his dark past and his motive for coming into the palace. To Gap-soo's surprise, Jeong-jo asks Gap-soo when he had given up being an assassin, then orders him to just leave the palace. However, Gap-soo finds out that there is another assassin besides him and frantically returns to the court, only to discover Eul-soo in combat with Jeong-jo. (c) CJ

Critic Reviews for The Fatal Encounter

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (2)

  • Veteran television director Lee Jae-kyoo balances the most engrossing aspects of the South Korean telenovela with grandiloquent Hong Kong-influenced fight scenes.

    December 23, 2014 | Full Review…
  • For all its spectacle, "The Fatal Encounter" is wanting for profundity.

    May 22, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Moderately captivating, complex and sophisticated with exquisite production values, but too much exposition diminishes the dramatic momentum.

    May 24, 2014 | Rating: 6.98/10 | Full Review…
  • Trying to find where the line is drawn between those we might consider right and wrong proves more compelling than the bevy of swordfights meant to solve their problems once and for all.

    May 23, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Lavish, long and impressive, but this epic torn from the pages of Korean history would have benefited from a more straightforward expositional style.
