Synopsis


Masquerade
A royal body double risks everything to save his beloved country from collapse in this historical drama set during Korea's Joseon Dynasty, and inspired by a mysterious 15-day gap in the country's history during one of its most turbulent eras. Korea is in chaos, and totalitarian King Gwanghae (Byung-hun Lee) fears that his life may be in danger. Determined to survive, he commands his counselor to recruit a stand-in to take his place in a worst-case scenario. The counselor soon returns with Ha-seon (again, Lee), a village performer and peasant who's a dead ringer for the tyrannical ruler. Later, when the king is poisoned and lapses into a coma, Ha-seon takes his place. Under orders from the king's chief advisor and chief eunuch, Ha-seon maintains the illusion despite constant threats of exposure and death. When the royal stand-in realizes that his country's future rests in his hands alone, however, the time comes to take drastic action no matter what the consequences. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Best Buy has been surprising with their variation of movies! Glad they had this movie in stock. Not to give too much of the film away it is a turn of events no one would have thought at a pace that captivates details.
