Two performing clowns (Lee and Gam Woo Sung from Spider Forest) produce a satirical play, which criticizes the country's ruler. While this makes them highly popular amongst the common people, it gets them into a world of trouble with the authorities. The two performers are arrested and accused of treason, a crime that carries the death penalty.

The clowns then make a deal with the King (Jeong Jin Young - Hi, Dharma) - if they can make him laugh with their play-acting, he will spare them. They are successful, and become the official entertainers of the royal court. Things become more complicated, however, as the king shows increasing affection towards one of the clowns and they realize that their lives may have begun down an irreversible path. A thrilling drama exploring secret desire in the top echelons of power, King And The Clown is a taboo-breaking cinematic treat that tackles subject matter rarely seen in Korean Cinema.

Dear Feifei,

I'm sorry to hear that you will be going on hiatus because it must be very exhausting to take care of such a comprehensive and detailed website.

Thank you for your dedication and hard work. Thank you for your generosity. Thank you for sharing.

I hope whatever that caused you to need a hiatus in the first place will be resolved in no time.

Best wishes~
