DRAMAFEVER MOVIE NIGHT: King and the Clown, starring Lee Joon Ki and Kam Woo Sung
Have you ever wondered who and what started the "flower boy" trend in Korea? Well, for this week's movie night, DramaFever is bringing you the film that started it all--King and the Clown, starring Lee Joon Ki in the breakout pretty boy role that shot him to fame as the original flower boy! Take a look!
Bonded through a love of comedy and a crime of passion, two clowns—Jangsaeng (Kam Woo Sung) and Gong Gil (Lee Joon Gi)—go on the run and take their act with them. But after their new routine catches the ire of the court and becomes grounds for treason, the comedic duo is summoned to humor the king—or die trying. Amidst increasing political unrest, the mad king takes a dangerous liking to the effeminate Gong Gil, forcing both clowns to walk a fatal tightrope between performance and reality.
