Masquerade (광해, 왕이 된 남자)

광해, 왕이 된 남자 (Gwang-hae, Wang-i Doin Nam-ja)

Directed by Choo Chang-min (추창민)

Screenplay by

Historical

131min | Release date in South Korea :

Previously known as "The King of Joseon" (조선의 왕, Jo-seon-eui Wang).
Synopsis
A commoner becoming the king is a theme that's all too familiar to us. The story was told in the well-known fable ‘The Prince and The Pauperʼ and this film takes the idea from that and takes it to the 16th- century Joseon Dynasty. The king is the tragic historic figure of Kwanghae. The commoner who becomes the King realizes just what it takes to be a good king. Although the premise may feel like it’s based on real events in history, but the film is a work of fiction. Lee Byeong-heon plays both the king and the commoner and it's his first role in a historical drama since his debut. His queen, who loves her king despite realizing that he's a fake, is played by Han Hyo-joo who showed great potential in "Always". The movie is directed by Choo Chang-min whose other works include "Mapado" and "Lost in Love" and the writer Hwang Jo-yoon co-wrote "Old Boy".

  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2014.01.17 ~ 2014.01.19

    2014/01/20,
    "Frozen" enjoys a solid start while "The Attorney" celebrates 10M tickets…  After four consecutive weeks at the top of the pile, Yang Woo-seok's "The Attorney" has finally given way to Walt Disney Picture's "Frozen" (1,036,102 admissions). The Oscar nominated animation has already grossed $759M worldwide and arrived on Korean shores to the delight of more than a million filmgoers. "Frozen" captured 41.4% of the market share to dislodge Yang's true-life drama and deny it a fifth straight week as Korea's number one. However that didn't overshadow the fact that this past week saw "The Attorney" breach 10 million admissions (10,162,511 - $69.5M), and it now joins an elite, and ever-growing, list of Korean films who have achieved such an incredible feat,...More

  • [HanCinema Feature] Historical Hysteria: Korean period films coming in 2014

    2014/01/11,
    Joseon pirates, legends, swordsmen, angels and more coming our way in 2014... Cinematic journeys back to Joseon and beyond have rewarded the Korean film industry with a string of profitable historical yarns, a trend that has got producers drooling with the prospect of tapping deeper into this regenerative cash cow. Recently, it's been Han Jae-rim's "The Face Reader" (9.1M admissions) that has had locals flustered and, in 2005, it was Lee Joon-ik's "The King and the Clown" that became the first Joseon-era flick to pass the 10 million admissions mark. It's big business with a cultural twist that locals enjoy supporting, international audiences love lapping up, and a trend that 2014 is keen to take advance of as a host of new retrospectives are getting raring to go,...More
