tvN released a short but impacting teaser for “The Crowned Clown.”
The drama is an adaptation of the movie “Gwanghae: The Man Who Became King” (also known as “Masquerade”) that starred Lee Byung Hun and Han Hyo Joo. It will tell the story of people considered the lowest in society and their fight against a world that values wealth and status above all else. Their convictions are based on their belief that love will overcome all obstacles created by societal ranks and customs.
Yeo Jin Goo will be taking on the double roles that Lee Byung Hun played in the film, Lee Heon and Ha Seon. Ha Seon is a clown who lost both his parents at a young age and was recruited as an entertainer before he starved to death on the streets with his younger sister. Lee Heon is a king who lives every day in fear of assassination or betrayal inside the palace until he meets his doppelgänger and his life turns upside down.
Lee Se Young will be playing Yoo So Yoon, the girl with whom both the clown and the prince are in love and Han Hyo Joo’s character in the film. She enjoyed a peaceful but brief newlywed life with Lee Heon when she entered the palace as a Crown Princess, but as queen, she is disappointed to see her king lose sight of his ideals. Without knowing that Lee Heon and Ha Seon change places, her heart undergoes a change when she sees the changed behavior of the “king.”
In the teaser, Yeo Jin Goo shows an elaborate, traditional dance as the clown Ha Seon. Wearing a fierce mask and red robes, his moves are captivating yet graceful. Towards the end of the clip, he sits on the throne and takes off his mask.
“The Crowned Clown” will premiere on January 7, 2019 at 9:30 p.m. KST.
