The large-scale war scenes and the sea fights for eliminating pirates were processed using computer graphic technique. Director Gang Byeok-Taek says, "I want to focus on the human aspect of Jang Bo-Go who starts from lowest social class but rises to the position of controlling the East Asian sea, instead of simply reviving a historical figure"».
