The idea for Masquerade developed from the true story of missing records totalling 15 days from the Annals of the Joseon Dynasty. Knowing that the king was kind, but paranoid, the staff constructed this idea as something that could have happened during that undocumented time. See more »
I have to say this was a great historical Korean movie. I am an avid watcher of Korean movies and dramas. Byung Hun Lee has been a favorite for the longest and he never disappoints. Byung plays both roles beautifully. As the cold hearted, ruthless more on the crazy and unpredictably King and as the kind hearted street performer. Knowing it is Byung playing both roles, I often forgot and utterly hated the real king and loved the " fake" king. That is how you know one is great in his craft and a superb actor, highly underrated in Hollywood. It would be a waste to type cast him in Hollywood as the bad guy always. He truly in a gem!!
