THE FATAL ENCOUNTER (2014, 135 min)
Given the seven assassination attempts on his life in his first year as king, young King Jeongjo was known by all as “The King of Misfortune” – a title he constantly hoped to escape from. Based on the Jeongyuyeokbyeon, one of the many assassination attempts on the king’s life in 1777, the film follows the 24 hours leading up to that incident. Jeongjo and his court servant Sang-chaek do everything they can to stay safe from assassins, but the king’s defense can only do so much against a constant barrage of attacks. In one such encounter, an orphan-turned-assassin has been ordered to execute the king, unaware that the king’s only friend and confidant – court servant Sang-chaek – was his own childhood companion!
