The King and the Clown

The King and the Clown/ 왕의남자/ Wang-ui namja ** (Korean)
movie 119 mins

Lee Jun-Ki as Gong-gil
Another historical romance.. with a bit of a twist to the usual and a sad yet 'free' ending... and a few deaths along the way.

Two traveling mistrals travel to Seoul in hopes of finding a minstrel's wage.. they meet and join up with another group and decide the mocking the king is where the money is. This gets them into hot water and are set to amuse the king or lose their lives. fortunately, the king is oddly pleased and makes them his jesters. Unfortunately, he takes a liking to one of the minstrels for a playmate. This tics off and worries his partner. With rumors flying and several royal's lives extinguished by the unstable king things begin to look very grim indeed.
