"Based on the novel Namhansanseong by Kim Hoon, The Fortress tackles the second Manchu invasion of Korea, when King Injo (Pak Hae-il) and his court took refuge in the fortress located in Namhananseong. Injo’s Joseon dynasty had long been allied with China’s Ming rulers, until the rise of that country’s Manchu Quing dynasty, with its general doggedly leading his soldiers onward to victory over Korea while awaiting the arrival of his emperor." - David Noh, Film Journal
