Review the movie Bloody Heart (Bloody Heart)

For political gain, love must be sacrificed

The film opens with a situation when the council members are holding a protest to demand the abdication of crown prince Lee Tae. The matter not being explained in such detail was clearly done to force Lee Tae to want to marry the crown prince of their choice.

After a few years, the princess was chosen to become the queen and suffered a serious illness, until her death. Here the audience will see the real face of Lee Tae, who does not seem to be silent when he is always controlled by one of the left council members named Park Gye-won.

The film tells two love stories that have to be sacrificed for political gain. In addition to the love story of King Lee Tae and Queen Yoo Jung, there is an interesting story that turned out to be the result of sacrifice.

Review movie bloody heart

The love story comes from left-wing councilor Park Gye-won, who was formerly the lover of Queen Choi Ga-yeon’s mother, and also the stepmother of King Lee Tae. They once almost got married, but because of political conflicts, they had to temporarily put it off. Ga-yeon ends up becoming the concubine of King Sunjong, Lee Tae’s father, at Gye-won’s request.

Gye-won and Ga-yeon actually still have feelings for each other. But because of politics, they are blind to their desire to become rulers and are determined to do anything to get it, including treason.

Human nature is always feeling dissatisfied with what we have, even if we are grateful, there must be a greedy person who wants to have it all. However, just like the law of cash farming, their actions will yield a not-so-pleasant refund.

For those who are already in power, it is not enough if they do not have other powers to further strengthen their wealth base. In ‘Blood Heart’, the audience will witness how these officials have stored their wealth under the guise of doing everything for the people.

In fact, the rights of the people were also corroded and made the rulers richer. For the sake of position and more power, they can do anything including murder.

In addition, revenge for power is influenced by endless greed. King Lee Tae made the decision to mass-kill corrupt officials using several strategies so as not to get him in trouble.

His wife, Empress Yoo Jung, has a different opinion and of course opposes this decision, as the impact will be widespread to innocent people and families. At this point of conflict, the plot of ‘Blood Heart’ becomes more and more intriguing to follow.

A strange and “slightly” boring story

The first two episodes were indeed able to capture the audience’s attention, with a series of events taking place immediately, leaving viewers impatient to know what stories would be shown in the future.

However, throughout the episode that aired until the last 6 episodes, there were too many weird stories, which should have been fun but felt a bit boring. The love story of the smooth protagonist does not progress nor encounter the challenging resistance of the King to avenge the members of the Park council.

He complied, although he took some steps to resist, but instead of succeeding, it turned against him. All decisions are always made sloppy and easy to read, so the opponent can anticipate it quickly.

It is true that the proverb cannot judge a book by its cover, starting from episode 10 the stories shown become more fascinating to follow. Moreover, the director has prepared an unusual change to be able to boost the audience’s adrenaline to keep up with each episode that is aired.

Indeed, the arrangement is quite different from other dramas, because towards the end of ‘Blood Heart’, a new program shows interesting things that the audience does not want to miss.
