The still images of characters from 'Empire of Lust' unveiled.
Director Ahn Sang-hoon, who captivated the critics with his previous work, "Blind" by introducing the new prototype to Korean thriller movies with the robust structure of story and new types of characters, now has turned his eyes towards the formidable fate of the three men during the early era of Joseon where lust for power and throne dominated.
The film, 'Empire of Lust' is about a bloody history recorded as "The War of Princes" fought for the ownership of the throne in the middle of the era of the burning ambition, which history tried to hide. It is also a story about the most innocent desire that sprouted in the tragic fate during the early era of Joseon where the endless conspiracy prevailed around the successor of the throne.
The historical background of the movie is the year of 1398, seven years after when Taejo, Lee Seong-gye established the new country. According to the Annals of the Joseon Dynasty, it is the year when Prince Lee Bang-won purged his rival faction and grabbed the power.
'Empire of Lust' dealt with another bloody tale at the back of "The War of Princes", which employed the cinematic imagination in addition.
