user posted imageKorean history is full of great and memorable events and people! Amazing history !
Recently ,my favorite Korean actor Seo Jin Lee, has accepted to embody such an amazing hero: General GyeBaek  which history has recorded only his supreme sacrifice, his desperate attempt to defend Baekje with only 5000 men against  50000, combined Silla and Chinese forces ,in 660 AD.
Perfectly aware that it will be defeated ,he killed his wife and children ,an act that shakes us because of its tragic significance! Baekje repelled four attacks before finally being overwhelmed.
We shall say that 300 ladyes from royal court, rather than fall into the enemy's hands ,also choose to die,trowing themselves   from the cliff top ,at Nakhwaam, ''the rok of falling flowers''
