    • Synopsis
    • King Sejong the Great of Joseon wants to enhance the nation’s riches and military power through the study of astronomy, and his loyal subject and scientist, JANG Yeong-sil, creates the instruments he imagines into reality.

      Threatened by Joseon’s ever-evolving astronomical technology, the Ming Empire orders Joseon to cease the studies and for JANG Yeong-sil to be dispatched.

      Afraid of Ming, Joseon’s court subjects insist JANG must be sent at once, but King Sejong, who thinks dearly of JANG, is deeply troubled by the dilemma.
