Okay, I couldn't help myself after reading the previous comments.
Now, one thing the summary got wrong, the court maid wasn't hung from the roof rafter (whatever that is. She was found hung from the beam in her own room.
This movie opens with the cardinal rule of the Korean Palace, that all maids who entered into the Korean King's service is a potential mate and must maintain their chastity in case he fancied one of them.
The story revolves around the murder of the said court maid and the people in court who are trying to suppress the investigation.
At times I wonder if the movie is trying hard to glorify the Korean court medics of old.
An better than average film in my opinion.
