The new Korean action go move “The Divine Move” was out recently in July Worldwide, and received mostly positive feedback from audiences.
When on thinks of the go community, violence and action are seldom the first thoughts that spring to mind. But Korean director Jo Beom-gu (조범구) has painted go players in a new light in his action movie about a professional go player whose brother is murdered. Framed for the crime, he must spend time in jail….etc.
The film basically is about “revenge in the name of his brother and using go”.
*the possibility of violence in go*
Even in “Hikaru no go” anime, gambling in go was featured in the early episodes; so betting in go is pretty common even in Tygem or Wbaduk server. However, what is the possibility can go leads to mafia, blackmarket kind of scenario?
The possibility is there but, why do you want to settle using a game of Go? When you have guns and knife?
*authenticity of the kifu*
The kifu in the film is actually directed by Seonho Kim 2p so the game is as nice as it should as shown in wbaduk site: http://www.wbaduk.com/news/news_view.asp?news_no=1127&listType=1&tabMenu=1&global_div=&national_code_no=&index_div=
Film is in Chinese Subs, and to appreciate the effort of uploading, please support Brunei Darussalam Go Association at http://www.facebook.com/groups/bruneigo
Lastly, please support original by buying original DVD or BluRay of the film :D
