HWANG JIN YI (Chang Yoon-Hyun)

Song Hye Kyo does her best to turn in a more mature dramatic role as the legendary Gisaeng (courtesan) who faced political turmoil and remained steadfast, but the dark treatment and the slow pacing makes HWANG JIN YI's story forgettable; the scenes are lost in the tedious 141-minutes running time.

I haven't seen the TV series so I cannot really make a comparison, but what's sure is that the costumes in the movie are breathtaking. 

But still, it's Song Hye Kyo so it's worth watching.
