What's the plot of The Pirates: The Last Royal Treasure?

Also known as The Pirates: The Goblin Flag, the movie "will tell the story of a group of people who embark on a journey on the sea to find the final treasure of the Goryeo royal family that disappeared without a trace after the kingdom was replaced by Joseon" according to Soompi. It's equal parts sageuk (historical), action, and comedy, so get ready for an adrenaline-filled show!

The prequel of the film was led by Son Ye Jin and Kim Nam Gil and it raked in $54.8 million on the year of its release. The success of The Pirates called for a second installment and was supposed to air in 2019, but since the OG cast turned down the offer for the sequel, Lotte Entertainment—the film's distributor—decided to stop the production.
