For Hyun Bin, this is his first major movie role after completing his mandatory military service. Also starring in the movie is Jung Jae Young (Welcome to Dongmakgol), Jo Jung Suk (The Face Reader), and Han Ji Min (Rooftop Prince).
Synopsis: In 1777, one year since he had taken reign, King Jeong-jo (Hyun Bin) bears a perilous palace life with his dedicated court servant, Gap-soo (Jung Jae Young), amidst opposition and threats from those around with political ambitions. Meanwhile, Eul-soo (Jo Jung Suk), a member of a secret assassin group, receives orders to kill Jeong-jo.
Gap-soo, who had also been in the same secret assassin ring as Eul-soo, later confesses to Jeong-jo about his dark past and his motive for coming into the palace. To Gap-soo’s surprise, Jeong-jo asks Gap-soo when he had given up being an assassin, then orders him to just leave the palace. However, Gap-soo finds out that there is another assassin besides him and frantically returns to the court, only to discover Eul-soo in combat with Jeong-jo.
