About This DVD
The surprise success story of 2005, The King And The Clown shocked everyone by coming out of nowhere to become the highest-grossing film of the year in Korea. The movie dominated at the 43rd Daejong Awards, picking up 10 awards including Best Film, Best Director, Best Script, Best Photography, Best Actor, and Best Supporting Actor. Gam Woo Sung (Spider Forest) was crowned Best Actor, while Lee Jun Ki, who shot to stardom with this film, received the Best New Actor Award.
The King And The Clown is set during the reign of infamous king Yeon-San (Jung Jin Young, Hi, Dharma). Two performing clowns (Lee Jun Ki and Gam Woo Sung) 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, The King And The Clown is a taboo-breaking cinematic treat that tackles subject matter rarely seen in Korean Cinema.
