The hotly anticipated historical drama “Masquerade,” starring Korea’s world star LEE Byung-hun and written by Old Boy co-writer, HWANG Jo-yoon.
The versatile actor LEE (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and A Bittersweet Life) plays the dual lead as both the tragic King Gwang-hae and that of the commoner who shares a fatefully remarkable resemblance to the ruler, Ha-Seon. Deeply embroiled in palace intrigue which aims to assassinate the ruler, King Gwang-Hae orders his trusted councilor Heo Kyun to find him a body double. When the King collapses from a mysterious poison, Ha-seon must carry off the biggest masquerade of his career to save the country from chaos while under imminent threat of death.
Acclaimed character actor RYU Seung-ryong (All About My Wife, War of the Arrows) and rising star HAN Hyo-Joo (Always) appear in supporting roles as the councilor and the queen, respectively.
