Drama Historical

120min | Release date in South Korea :

Chosun's most infamous Casanova, irresistible temptress and virtuous widow entangled in provocative and dangerous liaisons

The end of the Chosun dynasty-a period when rigid Confucianism clashed with encroaching new beliefs.

Lady Cho is a brilliant woman who mastered the classics on her own, and she resents the limited life she must lead as a woman. A devoted wife on the surface, she secretly entertains herself with sexual conquests.

On the other hand, her younger cousin Jo-won is accomplished both as a scholar and in martial arts, but rejects a high government post as if he disdains the hierarchical and patriarchal conventions of the time. He indulges in the pleasures of the flesh with as many women as he can seduce. Lady Cho was his first love, and they become co-conspirators in a high-stakes game of love and intrigue while hiding their true feelings for each other.

One day, Lady Cho asks Jo-won to deflower the innocent young Soh-ok, who is to become her husband's concubine, but his attentions are elsewhere: Lady Sook. Graceful and aloof, Lady Sook lives according to her convictions as a Catholic. Jo-won becomes obsessed with seducing her, a woman who has remained chaste for nine years since her husband's death. However, it proves to be more difficult than he expected when Chosun's greatest playboy sets out to conquer the most virtuous woman in the land...

  • 'Behind the Camera' director works his magic - via Skype

    2013/02/07, Source,
    Cutting-edge technology, empowered by the spread of smartphones, has shifted the way many professions work. But film maker Lee Jae-yong decided to take the trend to an extreme by making a movie about directing via mobile devices without being on set. The result of his audacious attempt is "Behind the Camera", slated to hit theaters on Feb. 28. "The world is changing thanks to the Internet and mobile devices. We can do so many things on computers. I work on a scenario at my desk, search the Internet for some reference material, read Twitter and watch movies. It is possible to do so many things without moving here and there", he said. "So, production of this movie began from the idea that we can direct a movie remotely. We made the movie using every communication method currently available. I think this represents the future of film production. Ten years from now, remote direction may be common,...More

  • [HanCinema's Interview Corner] Ten Questions for the KOREAN CINEPHILE

    2012/06/30,
    Your website, Modern Korean Cinema, has been up since mid-2010, how did you come to discover Korean cinema and what was it about Korea's film industry that really cemented your passion for it? My first exposure to Korean cinema came long before the inception of MKC and it's kind of a funny story (at least I think it is)! When I was in boarding school in Dublin (high school) we were studying Macbeth and as a nascent cinephile I wanted to seek classic filmed versions of Shakespeare's work, first came Polanski's, then Orson Welles' version but soon I came across Kurosawa's "Throne of Blood" (1957) and fell in love with it. Thus began my discovery of Japanese cinema and one day I was in my local media retail store in Switzerland when I came across a striking DVD in the Asian section. I thought it might have been something like a Takashi Miike film but it turned out to be none other than "Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance" (2002) and... I hated it, it made me furious. But I couldn't stop thinking about it and a week later I forced my self to watch it again and my whole world changed. My next film was Lee Chang-dong's "Peppermint Candy" (2000) and it's safe to say that the quality and social engagement of those works resulted in my becoming deeply attached to Korean cinema,...More

it's amazing how bae yong-jun can play such a provocative role. Most people usually perceive him as the 'tender and gentle' type-- his role in this drama just proves that he really is a versatile actor.
