Kim Dae-woo, Drama, 139 minutes
Yun-seo(Han Seok-kyu) comes across an ‘indecent novel’ by chance. Hesitant to read such a book at first, he is soon inspired to write one himself. He even asks his family rival and infamous captain of guards, Gwang-heon(Lee Beom-soo), to draw the illustrations for his books. Their book “Heukgokbisa” is soon the most talked about in town and is eventually read by Jeong-bin (Kim Min-jeong), the king’s favorite concubine. With Jeong-bin’s involvement, the two men are soon drawn in a tricky web of palace intrigue.
This film is presented in Korean with English subtitles.
