Can one weapon help a dynasty break free from its imperialist overlords? In 1448 during the 30th year of King Se Jong’s reign, the Joseon Dynasty is at the mercy of the Chinese Ming overlords. In order to gain independence, King Se Jong (Ahn Sung Ki) funds the development of a top-secret rocket-based artillery weapon known as the Sinjijeon. But before the project is complete, the Ming Dynasty finds out about the project and comes after the developers. To protect the project, the inventor of the Sinjijeon destroys the research materials and commits suicide. But the inventor’s daughter, Hong Ri (Han Eun Jung), escapes with the original blueprints and hides out at the home of Seol Joo (Jung Jae Young), a shady merchant has shunned politics after his father was accused of treason and killed. Under tremendous pressure from Chinese officials, King Se Jong orders a complete halt of the Sinjijeon project. But can Hong Ri convince Seol Joo to go against the king’s orders and finish the project? “The Divine Weapon” is a 2008 South Korean film directed by Kim Yoo Jin.
