神機箭

This weekend, my friend Steve and I went to go see the movie Singijeon (신기전), a film about a truly terrifying weapon invented in Korea.  The singijeon was a weapon capable of launching arrows designed to explode upon impact in multiples of 100.  The singijeon was used in the Imjin War, the war against the Japanese in the sixteenth century which Korea won despite impossible odds. 

The Yongsan CGV cinema (located in the I’PARK Mall connected to Yongsan Station) does provide English subtitles to their movies, thus permitting foreigners to see Korean movies.  I am something of a fan of some of the Korean historical dramas, so this seemed like an ideal movie to watch.

  1. Wow! They have the art of special effects in movies down in Korea, huh? Looks like an exciting movie. Glad they have subtitles for you!
