The king and the clown.
Director: Lee Joon Ik
Main Cast: Gam Woo Sung, Jung Jin Young, Lee Jun Ki
Summary: Two performing clowns produce a satirical play, which criticizes the country's ruler. While this makes them highly popular amongst the common people, it gets them into a world of trouble with the authorities. The two performers are arrested and accused of treason, a crime that carries the death penalty. The clowns then make a deal with the King if they can make him laugh with their play-acting, he will spare them. They are successful, and become the official entertainers of the royal court. Things become more complicated, however, as the king shows increasing affection towards one of the clowns and they realize that their lives may have begun down an irreversible path. A thrilling drama exploring secret desire in the top echelons of power, King And The Clown is a taboo-breaking cinematic treat that tackles subject matter rarely seen in Korean Cinema.
