Yeo Jin-Goo – Clown Ha Sun / King Lee Hun. Lee Se-Young – Queen Yoo So-Woon.


Joseon is in a state of disorder due to uprisings and a power struggle surrounding King Lee Hun (Yeo Jin-Goo). To avoid assassination, a clown named Ha Sun (Yeo Jin-Goo) is brought to the palace to take the place of King Lee Hun. Ha Sun looks almost identical to King Lee Hun.

When Ha Sun was a child, his parents died during an epidemic. Ha Sun almost died from starvation around that time, but he was saved by a group of clowns. Ha Sun grew up with the clowns and became one of them. During their performance, Ha Sun would play King Lee Hun due to their similar physical appearance. Now, Ha Sun is nervous that someone in the palace will find out he is not the real king. He falls for beautiful Queen Yoo So-Woon (Lee Se-Young)

My thoughts (on Ep 1-2)

I was eagerly waiting for this drama to start airing as I thought it would be the drama that will take me out of my kdrama slump. AND IT DID!!!!

Historical dramas tend to start very well. (I remember I liked the first 2 episodes of 100 days my prince so much but not the overall the way the drama progressed. Read here)

Yeo Jin Goo’s acting is very good. Background Music is also very good, fits in perfectly and makes you laugh too. I really loved the opening music of episode 1.

Episode 0

Acting- 10

Music- 10

Phenomenal. Highly Recommended.
