Historical action and hysterical laughter combine as Shilla's King Kim Choon-chu seeks the assistance of the Tang Empire to defeat Koguryo and Baekche, his sworn enemies. In the 7th Century, internal warfare has fractured the Korean peninsula into three kingdoms. If King Kim Choon-chu can convince the Chinese to aid him in bringing down Baekche's strongest fortress, they will breach the mountain interior, and be ready to take on Koguryo. But Baekche General Kye Baek (Park Joong-hoon) isn't about to give up the Hwangsanbul without a fight, and by the time the battle gets underway the stage is set for a massive conflict.
