About This DVD

Uncover taboo thrills in the period comedy/drama Forbidden Quest! Written and directed by Kim Dae Woo, this cheeky film revolves around a respected aristocrat who begins penning erotic novels as a passion, only to achieve a level of success greater than he ever dreamed! Han Seok Kyu (from Christmas in August and Tell Me Something) plays Yun Seo, a mousy scholar and government official during the Joseon Dynasty, who comes across a so-called "indecent" tome simply by chance. Although hesitant to read it at first, he becomes so fascinated with its contents, that he, too, is soon compelled to write an erotic novel himself. To his great joy, Yun Seo's first chapter of a serialized novel not only gets favorable reviews from the locals, but becomes one of the top titles, ranking number two in popularity.

Under the guise of a pen name, Yun Seo becomes highly motivated to become the number one author of erotic novels, stumbling on an ingenious idea to change the erotic book market forever - pictures. As a result, he ends up asking Gwang Heon (Lee Bum Soo, from Singles), an imperial "cop" with a talent for drawing horses, to take up a new subject of interest - sketching some erotic illustrations for his newest novel! Together, their book Heukgokbisa becomes a smash hit, eventually finding its way into the hands of the king's prized concubine, Jeong Bin (Kim Min Jeong). And once she's involved, these two unlikely erotic novelists find themselves caught up in something they never expected. Full of erotic references and racy jokes, Forbidden Quest is a playful film about how sex and creativity can thrive, even within a repressive, all-too respectable society!
