Masquerade (2012)

Why are 15 days worth of records missing from annals of the Joseon Dynasty? Though we’ll never know for sure, it’s fair to surmise that since the king was kind but cautious (some would say paranoid), it’s not impossible that arrangements were made in anticipation of a potential emergency.

Like the switcheroo in American movie, Dave, when a regular citizen impersonates the ailing president, a commoner must fill in for the king while avoiding assassination; both fictional accounts feature an ordinary man of the people, whose noble character infuses their power and influence to enact positive change upon their respective countries. However, this tale is anything but silly; it exudes its culture’s beauty and passion.
