Overview

A royal body double risks everything to save his beloved country from collapse in this historical {drama set during Korea's Joseon Dynasty, and inspired by a mysterious 15-day gap in the country's history during one of its most turbulent eras. Korea is in chaos, and totalitarian King Gwanghae (Byung-hun Lee) fears that his life may be in danger. Determined to survive, he commands his counselor to recruit a stand-in to take his place in a worst-case scenario. The counselor soon returns with Ha-seon (again, Lee), a village performer and peasant who's a dead ringer for the tyrannical ruler. Later, when the king is poisoned and lapses into a coma, Ha-seon takes his place. Under orders from the king's chief advisor and chief eunuch, Ha-seon maintains the illusion despite constant threats of exposure and death. When the royal stand-in realizes that his country's future rests in his hands alone, however, the time comes to take drastic action no matter what the consequences.

    Caught this at the Dallas Asian Film Festival and was very glad

    Caught this at the Dallas Asian Film Festival and was very glad I did. A rich, engrossing historical drama, every bit as gorgeous as the type of stuff Zhang Yimou puts out. If you want a summary, look above - I won't bother to provide another one. Lee Byung-hun really shows off his range in this film; previously I had only seen him in The Good the Bad the Weird and I Saw the Devil. The special features go into detail about the technical reasons for the different cameras they used and how to achieve various lighting effects - just more proof that South Korea is strengthening its position as THE Hollywood of Asian cinema.
